Product Description

Product Description

I used to be a professional footballer in the 70's and the 80's, not great, but not bad either. The Geordies would call me a ' canny' player. You may have heard of me, not because of my footballing prowess, but because of my 'name'.
'Fuckin Hell, it's Paul Cannell' the phrase first coined by Brummie comic genius Jasper Carrott has followed me for the thirty odd years since I left Newcastle United. I did receive some respite from it during the four years I played in the North American Soccer League with teams such as the Washington Diplomats, the Memphis Rogues, the Calgary Boomers, and the Detroit Express, however on my return to the Toon, it started all over again; not on the terraces but in the bars, taxis, buses... even in the fuckin' butchers!
This book is a collection of controversial stories featuring some of the world's 'greats' such as Johann Cruyff, Malcolm Macdonald and Pele; some of the famous such as Howard Stern, President's daughter Susan Ford, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jasper Carrott and even fuckin' Sting and others such as me mates, Jimmy Steele and Bob Stetler, me drug dealer Joe and the infamous 'Memphis cookie man'. Oh, and I nearly forgot, there are some fuckin' twats in it as well... like Jimmy Hill the ex Coventry chairman and disgraced owner of the Detroit Express and the Washington Diplomats.
It's a little bit chronological in that I've split it into three sections; my time in England, my time in the States and my time after football. The stories are about things that happened during my time in the game. Some are hilarious, some are surprising, some are shocking and some are disgusting. Some however, are hilariously, surprisingly, shockingly fuckin' disgusting... The stories you don't normally read about!

2.0 out of 5 stars Self Absorbed 19 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Initially I thought this would a good read but by the end of the book I found myself disliking Paul Cannell intensely. If you are interested in reading a book about a self absorbed coke addict then this is the one for you. Personally I found it pretty gruelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read 19 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a Newcastle fan I remember Paul Cannell and leaving and coming back from America. But who would have thought he had such interesting tales to tell. Controversial views on the modern game vis balls and pitches too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read! 12 July 2012

Great book about the early days of soccer in the U.S. Paul Cannell has an open, honest way of writing. Even non-soccer fans will enjoy this book. I highly recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Living a life! 9 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
He really seems to have packed a multitude of experiences into his life so far.
The narrative is a bit disjointed, but it is, always informative and entertaining.
Another effort that's hit the back of the net!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough football memoir 20 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A romp around the US in the 70's - a former Newcastle reserve becomes a 'bad boy' soccer star. Could've left out the last chapter about running pubs in the north-east - of interest to no-one!
