1.0 out of 5 stars What utter rubbish. 6 Jan 2008
I seriously worry for the sanity of the first two reviewers of this book, which have given it the undue high rating it has received. This is an egotistical piece of utter tripe from start to finish proving what an utter hipster bore Lovejoy is. This is the worse book ever written by frankly one of the most tedious and downright idiotic characters that has ever graced the earth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly repugnant 31 Dec 2012
A book which is not just ­tedious in the extreme, but utterly vile. Part autobiography, part witless musing, and one more triumph for the crass stupidity rapidly replacing culture in this country. Hopelessly banal and nauseatingly self-assured, smirkingly unfunny, it constitutes 304 pages of vomit-inducingly putrid nonsense, that should not be read by anyone, ever.

When Lovejoy's not listing his media achievements with a breathtaking lack of guile, he's sneering at those "sad" enough to take an interest in football history, revealing his lack of knowledge about life outside the Premier League and there is rarely a page which doesn't demonstrate his insularity, self-­satisfaction and a startlingly small mind.

Desperate attempts to stress his friendships with numerous celebrity figures do little to improve the experience. He'll "even watch the occasional game of rugby now, because I'm friends with a lot of the players like Will Greenwood, Matt Dawson, Lawrence ­Dallaglio and Austin Healy". How very bold of you, Tim.

"The hardest thing about leaving ­Soccer AM," he says regretfully, "is the thought that I might no longer be influencing the game." True, it'll be tough. But who knows? Perhaps the game will struggle on.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nonce-sense 3 Dec 2008
Same management agency as the Spice Girls, with the equivalent knowledge of football (no offence Sporty). I've seen porn videos with less bum-licking and greater development of character than his infomercial "documentry" on Beckham.

By Wizzer
Came across this book by chance, a mate had bought it I think (hope) ironically. Like some of the other football fans who do take the game of football seriously and posted a review, this book is not for you. If you are thoughtful and enjoy the beautiful game, then please avoid at all costs. I only gave it 1 star as Amazon doesn't allow 0 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lovejoy's gravy train. 6 Oct 2007
Absolute tripe.An ex Watford fan who now supports Chelsea tells you all you need to know about this middle class bore.Making a fortune out of football and name dropping Beckham at every chance.
As Ally Ross of The Sun pointed out,there are 38 pictures of himself in the book.8 more than Nelson Mandela used in his autobiography.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting opportunity 9 May 2013
Tim Lovejoy, known for his work on television and the like, has written this book. Now it seems he will be, after an absence, be back on screens fronting a new programme for BT. Therefore I would recommend you buy this book for its an ideal opportunity to get an insight into the presenter of an upcoming programme before it airs.
I first became aware of Mr Lovejoy earlier today when I spotted he was trending on twitter. I won't be reading this myself.
