Imagine you’re walking along the street and a car stops.
One of the game’s greatest modern day goalscorers winds down the window and says he’s off to the game – do you need a lift? ‘Alright Aldo!’
Aldo – aka John Aldridge – is the former Liverpool Football Club and Republic of Ireland striking legend who travels all over the country and Europe following the fortunes of his beloved boys in red and green during the course of his TV, radio and media work.
He loves talking football and expressing his opinions on the game – having a laugh and a bit of banter with the supporters who think of him as one of their own.
In ‘Alright Aldo’, the proud Irish Scouser draws on years of experience to produce a book that is full of hilarious inside stories about the big characters and teams he has known.
From Anfield to Dublin, Tranmere to Real Sociedad, Newport to the Mexico World Cup and Istanbul to Cardiff, Aldo relives the funny side of being a professional footballer and what it’s like working on the other side as one of the media.
In between the laughs, Aldo puts forward some controversial opinions about the big talking points dominating the game today.
From the infamous Thierry Henry handball that denied the Irish a World Cup place to the off-the-field issues that are threatening to tear Liverpool FC apart, Aldo gives his no-nonsense views.
It’s a journey that you won’t want to miss!
