"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.
"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)

Wonderful story and the narrator was flawless. Whoever the secret footballer is (or all of the Secret Footballers) is/are, please keep writing. For fans of football (soccer) or anyone who wants to know the stories you seldom hear about professional sports.

Not as interesting nor as insightful as I had hoped!
