Publisher's Summary

"It is often said that 95% of what happens in football takes place behind closed doors. Many of these stories I shouldn't be telling you. But I will."
The honest truth about professional football, by the Guardian's man inside the game.


What the Critics Say

"This is better than any turgid football biography on the bookshelves and well worth seeking out." (Sunday Business Post)
"A recklessly honest read that pairs guilty pleasure gossip with a moral compass, as TSF is force-fed a lifestyle that comes with being a Premier League footballer." (Loaded)
"Not since the days of the great super-injuctions has the identity of an anonymous sports star cause as much speculation as that surrounding the mysterious author of the Guardian column 'The Secret Footballer', which has been running in the paper for the last 18 months" (Choice magazine)
"A hugely insightful and opinionated commentary on the modern game." (Morning Star Online)

Well Written and Engaging

This is one of my favorite non-fiction books I have listened to. The structure is clear and easy to follow. The author's voice is consistent and engaging. And beyond all the content is well chosen and conveyed in a compelling manner which humanizes these sometimes seemingly mystical beings that are professional footballers. The author clearly lays out what actually happens during different phases of both a player's life, and landmark changes at football clubs.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has any interest in football, but also to anyone who simply enjoys honest reflection on a life few people will ever live.
