A very revealing insight into the world of top class professional football Only shows that there are always many facets in any endeavor or issue While the Secret Footballer provides a number of entertaining anecdotes to aspects of a professional footballer s life that conforms and validates our common views and perceptions of these individuals, he also provides a side of professional football the public rarely hears about It s difficult to imagine how people who have successfully reached the pinnacle of their professional career still struggle with depression, the success and adulation, and the prospects of facing life after their playing career is over. The Secret Footballer is back And this time he s not alone Very informative book,showing the footballers mindset. I ve read quite a few of the columns and I enjoyed the first part of the book but I found it wearing after a while I think the sections about football rather than lifestyle are interesting Haven t manage to finish it yet perhaps on my next holiday An ok read if you have nothing else Author details of his experiences playing for teams in the Premier League.More interesting than Sky Football annuals and other commercialised self glorification produced by football clubs and the ghost writers of PR conscious players.Helps your kids develop a healthy cynicism for heroes and the commercial machine. Like it says on the tin More tales from the secret footballer Very good read, well worth shelling out the few for the entertainment within. Meh Marginally interesting I suppose but certainly not something I could read in one go of a book that you keep in the toilet and dip into now and again Probably should have left it at newspaper articles rather than a whole book of fairly similar tales, some of which are a little hard to believe Maybe if the author had named names it might have got a bit interesting, but then he wouldn t be the Secret Footballer I suppose. Okay book Starts to get good with some funny stories but felt like it never got going Not that many tales just a lot of opinions Very interesting on depression Well done for speaking out.
