Attached to Coventry City: A Personal Memoir [9781801500210]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Why would a normal teenager throw his heart and soul into an average Third Division football club for almost a decade, only to walk away from them at the height of their success? After abandoning that club for 20 years, what would cause him to rekindle his passion in a conversion-like experience, and then stick with the club for the rest of his life? The answers lie in the psychology of attachment. This is the story of James Adams and his support of Coventry City, from the days of Billy Frith to Mark Robins. It's an account that delves into the crucial yet poorly understood psychological aspects of football fandom to uncover truths that every football fan can relate to. Join James on a rollercoaster ride as he asks important questions of himself and his life alongside a backdrop of footballing highs and lows, including three Wembley victories and four promotions, as well as FA Cup debacles for the Sky Blues. Attached to Coventry City is a highly personal, honest and reflective account of the unusual story of a lifelong football fan.
AUTHOR: James Adams's first book, Passionate! A Whole-life Memoir, was published in 2021 and he is now working on his third book, Reflections: A Workbook for Self-Discovery. James has taught in secondary schools in West Yorkshire for 35 years and was the Head of Social Sciences from 1990 to 2010. He continues to work in a local sixth form. His interests include creative psychology, USA politics and popular music.
