A Game of Two Halves
The Autobiography
Archie Macpherson

6" x 9 1/2" • 308 pages
ISBN 9781845022792 • hardback • $30.00

For four decades Archie Macpherson has been one of Britain's finest football commentators. Instantly recognizable, he's never been short of an opinion or far from controversy. After joining the BBC full-time in 1969, he established himself not only as one of our foremost commentators but also as a cult figure in our national life.

In A Game of Two Halves, Archie Macpherson gives us his unique perspective on his life and career. As well as brilliant anecdotes including his battles with Jock Stein, friendship and a spectacular falling out with Alex Ferguson, interviewing Terry Wogan in LA in a Jacuzzi in an open-top limousine and the Scotland football manager who took delivery of a plain white envelope, Archie Macpherson also tackles tough issues like sectarianism, the sad decline of commercial television and the future of the beautiful game.

A Game of Two Halves is a candid, entertaining and thought provoking autobiography which brings Archie Macpherson's story and his passion for football to life with all his characteristic insight, humor and honesty.

Archie Macpherson was born and raised in Glasgow. After attending Coatbridge High School and Jordanhill College he played football at amateur level for various teams including Queens Park Hampden XI. His full-time broadcasting career started with the BBC in 1969 and he was the principal commentator and presenter on Sportscene. In recent years he has worked for Eurosport, Scottish Television, Radio Clyde, BBC Five Live and Setanta and has written four bestselling books. In 2005 he was presented with a BAFTA Award for special contribution to Scottish broadcasting.
