Just when you thought you were going to get a break from football before the new season starts, Jim Murphy would like to invite you to the Scottish launch of his book ‘The 10 Football Matches that Changed the World and the One that Didn’t’. It’s the story of the ten most important football matches ever played.

The launch and signing event will take place in Waterstones on Sauchiehall Street from 3-4pm on Sunday 27th July.

Jim will be in conversation with broadcaster Archie MacPherson, footballing legends Gordon Smith and Billy McNeill and Celtic Chief exeutive Peter Lawwell as he discusses his new book. Jim Murphy takes us on a journey around the world and through the years, from Franco’s Spain to Africa’s Alcatraz, Robben Island. Charting the match that sparked a Central American war, the Barcelona team threatened at gunpoint, and the game that helped save Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, among much else, Murphy lends a fresh new perspective to some of the most iconic moments in international football.

To reserve a free ticket, call Waterstones on 0141 332 9105.
