Fun! I wanted to read about the naughty wives of famous footballers, but he doesn’t explain it here. The stories he does tell was fun.
He makes it clear that not all footballers are dumb oafs. Well, that’s obvious, not every footballer’s idea of a good time is getting drunk and laid all the time, at the same time, and several times at once. At least, not all the time. But to see it articulated in such a manner, with such a sense of self-awareness is refreshing.
From an education perspective, however, I do prefer The Secret Footballer’s Guide to the Modern Game, which isn’t all textbook, but explains a little more behind some of the things that are happening on the screen.
