Reprint. This ed. originally published.: Harmondsworth: Viking, 1986.

The 40th anniversary edition of the classic inside account of a season at a professional football club"The best book about football I have read by someone who has actually played the game...everyone who has ever dreamt of a sporting career should read it" - Nick HornbyThe season began so well for the Republic of Ireland international midfielder Eamon Dunphy at Millwall - and ended in disillusionment and being on the transfer list.

In this classic memoir, he charts the progress of the team during a season that begins with such high hopes and is filled throughout with high drama.

Populated with extraordinary characters - and with access to the dressing room that would be impossible today - Only a Game? is both a riveting read and an exceptional insight into professional sport. "It remains both greatly admired and unmatched." - Richard Williams, The Guardian"The best and most authentic memoir by a professional footballer" - Brian Glanville"Exceptional.

It became the standard by which similar books were judged, and was exceeded in acclaim only with the publication of Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby more than a decade later." - The Times
