Motty's Year (book)


John Motson's diary of the football season will start in Northampton in August 2003 and take him around all 92 English football league grounds before culminating with England's attempt to win Euro 2004 in Portugal. The BBC's Premiership football highlights programme Match of the Day returns to our screens this August with Motty as lead commentator. John Motson has been a member of the Match of the Day team for nearly 30 years and is regarded by many as the voice of football. He has covered well over 1,000 matches for the BBC. Motty's Year was published immediately after the final of Euro 2004 and provided the first account of the tournament in which Europe's elite international teams compete for a prize that is second only to the World Cup.
