Book Description

7 Oct 2010

Ever since his delayed arrival on the lower-league scene, Lee Trundle has grabbed the attention of football fans nationwide. A cult hero wherever he went, the striker with the showman's touch and the appetite for the spotlight became the most talked-about name outside the Premiership. Whether it was the outrageous skills made famous by Soccer AM, the celebrity girlfriends or his infamous image-rights deal, his cheeky smile was never far from focus. And that's without mentioning the goals that saw him go from non-league hopeful to million-pound star.

Trundle has been the subject of more column inches than many top-flight stars would dream of, but now he has his say. In this revealing and honest autobiography, he tells all about his Liverpool upbringing, his journey through the non-league sides and nightclubs of the north-west and how the birth of his daughter helped change his life on and off the pitch. He lifts the lid on his time at Wrexham, Bristol City, Leeds United and his beloved Swansea City, including his moments of heaven and hell at both the Millennium and Wembley stadiums.

In Lee Trundle: More Than Just Tricks, Trundle shows there's more to his story than simply showboating, as he reflects on the ups and downs of his career so far, including an emotional 2009-10 season.

5.0 out of 5 stars a really good read 8 Oct 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A book that makes fascinating reading about a young lad from Liverpool with tremendous talent as a footballer who wasted so many years by not taking things seriously but went on to achieve something approaching cult status through his amazing skills with Welsh club Swansea City. Because it is written in conjunction with a serious professional sports journalist the book does not attempt to go for the easy option of pages and pages of sex and boozing that might have been the preferred route for a tabloid journalist. It is an honest account by a player who has regrets that he could have achieved so much more if he had entered the professional game in his teens rather than at 24 when the birth of a daughter finally galvanised him into taking the game seriously. Yes you need to be a football fan to appreciate the descriptions of the highs and lows of Trundle's football career but the book in many ways is inspirational in the way a shy young lad from a northern English city has embraced the Welsh City of Swansea and its football club.
