FINISHED: Win Dennis Bergkamp's Autobiography "Stillness and Speed"
This competition is now closed
Dennis Bergkamp is probably the greatest footballer ever to grace the Arsenal FC shirt and will be forever remembered by fans of the Premier League as our greatest ever import.
The man known as God to Gooners, whose mesmeric football and omniscience on the field spawned a religion Arsenal supporters simply call Dennisism has blessed us with a book. That book shall be known as Stillness and Speed and it's radiance will light the way and guide us unto the promised land.
Due for release on September 26th, Stillness and Speed is a rare glance into the mind of a true genius and footballing legend. Goonersphere are delighted to announce that we have 6 copies of Dennis' autobiography to give away to our lucky readers. Before we give you details of how to enter here is a little insight into this much anticipated book.
In Stillness and Speed, one of football's most enigmatic stars finally opens up about his life and career, revealing the things that motivate and inspire him.
Viewed by many as one of the most influential figures in Premier League history, and scorer of the goal that Arsenal fans voted the best in the club's history, Dennis Bergkamp is a true giant of the game. As a youngster, Bergkamp learned from the Dutch master Johan Cruyff. By the time the pupil was ready to graduate from Ajax and move abroad, he was ready to spread the word, but in Italy he found few willing listeners.
It was only when he moved to Arsenal and linked up with Arsene Wenger that he met someone else who shared his vision for football's possibilities. Bergkamp became central to everything the club did: now he had become the teacher, their creative genius, and the one who inspired some of the wayward old guard to new heights, helping them to seven major trophies.
Few footballers' books make you think anew, but in Stillness and Speed Bergkamp presents a new vision for the game and how it might be played. He was a player like no other; his story is told like no other. It is a book that will inspire football fans everywhere, whatever their allegiance.
