David Seaman – Safe hands
David Seaman has been at the centre of the most successful Arsenal side of the postwar period. He has also made the England goalkeeper’s position his own with a succession of superb games as both player and captain, not least with heroic performances at the focus point of the high-tension penalty shootouts that have dogged England’s progress in recent international competitions. As with Alex Ferguson’s number one bestselling autobiography, this will be a celebration of one of the most successful and high-profile careers in the domestic game. Published in Seaman’s testimonial year at Arsenal (where he is second only to Tony Adams in terms of popularity) this is the story of one of the best-loved people in sport. Awarded the MBE for services to Sport, a true sportsman with a spotless record and a reputation as one the games most thoughtful characters, Seaman’s extraordinary popularity with both his club supporters, England fans and the population at large, remains enormous. A genuine national sporting hero, his appeal stretches beyond the world of football.
