'An artist, in my eyes, is someone who can lighten up a dark room. I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970, and the poetry of the young Rimbaud' - Eric Cantona Football, and art. Eric Cantona – legend, maverick, troubled artist or just plain trouble – never saw a need to make a distinction between the two. For all the heat and noise surrounding his infamous Crystal Palace 'kung-fu kick', it is for the sheer exuberant beauty of his play that Eric Cantona is chiefly remembered by English football fans. At Leeds United he transformed the team into title contenders, but became a true talisman at Manchester United, where to this day fans sing of 'King Eric'. And yet the effortless style of Cantona's play could not hide a darker side to his temperament. In his own words, 'I play with passion and fire. I have to accept that sometimes, this fire does harm.' In Cantona: The Rebel Who Would Be King leading French football journlist Philippe Auclair has interviewed over 200 key protagonists in Cantona's career, searching for the man behind the myth. Marrying a deep knowledge of Cantona's impact on the pitch with soulful, pin-sharp insight into the heart and inner thoughts of this most complex of characters, this is nothing less than the definitive biography of a one-time rebel of the French game, who rose to be the King of Old Trafford. 'I'd give all the champagne I've ever drunk to be playing alongside Cantona in a big European match at Old Trafford' - George Best

Eric Cantona's career at Old Trafford lasted only 5 years but its lasting impact is still being felt today. During that comparatively small span, Cantona's dedication and self-confidence enabled a club to emerge from over a quarter of a century of failure and self-doubt. Cantona's career before he arrived in England had been nomadic at best, self-destructive at worst. He blazed a trail through French football but the highest profile incidents centred on his spectacular misbehaviour and clashes with authority. By the time he was snapped up by Leeds manager Howard Wilkinson in early 1992, he seemed to have burned most of his bridges in France. A lucky phone call was the catalyst for Cantona's £1m transfer to United following a brief Leeds career during which the Frenchman had added inspiration to a team founded on perspiration. Most Manchester United fans recognised Cantona's class, his decisive role in Leeds 1992 title triumph and his instant hero status among Yorkshiremen. Yet few could have anticipated the quality that would shine through following his arrival at Old Trafford. For 26 years Manchester United fans had suffered under the jack boot of Liverpool's domination of European and domestic trophies. Cowed into submission, their fans tended to hope for the best but feared the worst, even 6 seasons of relative success under Ferguson hadn't changed that mindset. Cantona's fearless attitude transformed the club, almost in an instant. Never has a football club been so altered from one day to the next by one signing. Never has a club gone from 'nearly men' to 'champions' at the stroke of a pen. All of a sudden, the boot was on the other foot and remains so to this day. over 10 years since Eric last kicked a ball in anger. This book details every game Eric played for Manchester United, Leeds United and the French national team as well as potted summaries of his career in France. Darren Phillips, author of "The Complete George Best", has painstakingly researched his remarkable career in France, England and in the French national team. This book can be read either as a work of reference or a detailed insight into a career that altered the dynamics within English football for good.

Ten years have now elapsed since Eric Cantona took what was then the unusual decision to make the short hop across the Channel and start his love affair with English football. Less than six months after his arrival, he won his first Premier League title with Leeds United. Within a year, he joined Manchester United and quickly inspired a whole generation of players to greatness. The French Revolution examines how, a decade on, the Premier League has now become the favourite playground for French footballers, whether they be internationals or bit-part players. Never before, has there been such a wonderful array of Gallic talent available in England. From success stories such as Silvestre to kid's adventures like Vignal, from explorers such as Ginola and Leboeuf to innovators like Tigana, this book is the definitive encyclopaedia of French footballers in England. Apart from serving as a reminder of the unprecedented number of successes that have emerged from France in the last ten years, The French Revolution provides numerous extra insights, such as the views of passionate supporters, influential agents and comforting physios, among other witnesses of this incredible journey to the home of football. This is the intimate and exclusive story of the French footballers who found fame, fortune and happiness on the football fields of England.

On the field or off, Eric 'The King' Cantona has always been known as an artist. Passionate about painting and photography from a very young age, he more recently took to writing, drawing and sketching out his thoughts in small Moleskine diaries. This book is the reproduction of his notebooks. Through these never-before-seen drawings, in his faux-naive style, Eric Cantona questions every aspects of the world around us - whether it's love, death, absurdity or society. With his trademark wit and wordplay, Cantona interrogates our paradoxes and contradictions, and the absurdity of the world as only he knows how. These notebooks are as funny as they are poetic and philosophical. But foremost, they're an ode to living, loving, sharing and contemplation.

The first piece is a surreal fictional work about Eric Cantona. When his second cousin and restaurant owner hears that he is to play in a charity match at Old Trafford, he has a bright idea. How can he use Eric Cantona to boost sales? The solution causes mayhem. The second piece is a script for a ten minute film about a boy who wants to be a footballer. His problem is shared by all children. How can you play ball games without neighbours complaining? His father's solution backfires and gives the reader a smile. This story is written as a script which may not be an easy medium for all readers.

Football isn't a matter of life and death,' Bill Shankly once famously said, 'it's much more important than that.' In The Heart of the Game, Jimmy Greaves looks back over his long association with the sport to give his take on all things football, and attempts to make sense of our undying passion for the beautiful game. How has the game changed from its working class roots to its current celebrity-driven image? How do managers like Sir Alf Ramsey compare to the Svens of today? Why have England stopped producing great goalkeepers? How come the football of yesteryear was more physical, yet the footballer of today is more injury-prone? Drawing on both his knowledge and love of the game, this is Jimmy at his fascinating, witty and humorous best.
