Overview

In this candid autobiography, Goram reveals the anguish he felt after walking out on Scotland’s pre-World Cup camp in America upon learning that veteran Jim Leighton would be first-choice keeper at France ’98; offers his take on the bombshell letter he penned to boss Craig Brown that ended his international career, depriving him of the experience of playing in the World Cup finals; dispels the myth that he enjoyed a friendly rivalry with Leighton and lifts the lid on why they haven't spoken for a decade; comes clean on the hurt he felt after being deemed yesterday’s man by Dick Advocaat; recounts the high drama that unfolded when he went AWOL prior to the 1994 Scottish Cup Final clash with Dundee United, leaving boss Walter Smith in a fit of rage back home; and recalls the thrill he experienced upon playing for Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United side. The Goalie is a rip-roaring read that, like the man himself, is full of character, highly entertaining and always unpredictable.
