‘Not for me, Clive’

Stories from the Voice of Football

with Gavin Mortimer.

Football changes everything. It changes how we feel, how we think, how we behave. It turns us into someone else. This stunning, lyrical book is raw, funny and revealing about football and what it means to so many. Full of extraordinary stories from Clive’s long career, The Times’ Henry Winter says:  ‘… worth getting for the Roy Keane selfie story alone ‘.

Clive Tyldsley was ITV’s senior football commentator for 22 years following the retirement of Brian Moore in 1998. He won the Royal Television Society Sports Commentator Award four times in seven years and his book was short-listed for the 2022 Sports Book Award. 

Clive will be talking to Gavin Mortimer, author The History of Football in 100 Objects  and a football correspondent of The Week for ten years.
