The review must be at least 50 characters long. The title should be at least 4 characters long. Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. No more playing football. Note that Chris is a psychoanalyst, not that dubious phenomenon, a sports psychologist. The psychologist, employed previously when McClaren managed Middlesbrough, was seemingly unable to save him from what seemed a nervous crisis early last year when, the account of Gareth Southgate, then the club captain, now their new manager, tells us that senior players had to take over the team.
I shall not easily forget the first football psychologist I ever met. It was in Gothenburg, at the beginning of the World Cup finals and he was attached to the Brazilian team, which would triumphantly win the title for the first time.
Football Delirium - Chris Oakley - Google Книги
He came from Sao Paolo, a small, unshaven man with spectacles and grey jerseys. He strongly advised Vicente Feola, the plump and rumbling manager, not to pick either the year-old Pele, or the dazzling but unpredictable Garrincha. As we know, as soon as these two marvellous players came into the team, for the third game, they changed everything. Pele, of course, scored half a dozen goals including two gems in the Final in which Garrincha, with two amazing, jaguar swoops, made two first-half goals for Vava.
Oakley, who, at the other, lesser end of professional football has tales of being cautioned by police at humble Scarborough, for abusing a linesman, and of even standing on the crumbling terraces of second division Limerick in Ireland, has highly original things to say about what football means to players, as well as supporters. He places great emphasis on intensity and its benefits, whether for fan or for player, and believes it can be elicited by footballers noted for their explosive, even their excessive, qualities. Eric Cantona, of course, had it in spades.
He always played somehow on the edge. He draws an interesting analogy between psychoanalysis and soccer: Yet what psychoanalysis brings to the table is that so often, unconsciously, we are after something else.
