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.

Format: Paperback
So now football's most searingly irritating 'television personality' has decided to let us in on what he really thinks of the game. His series of anecdotes are boring. It's quite sad that football is such a huge part of his life because he comes across as a bit of wannabe. A wannabe Chelsea fan, a wannabe salt-of-the-earth cock-er-nay. Most annoying of all is the way he anaylises football at such a shallow level. His actual punditry goes little further than tired cliche.

Format: Paperback
Tim Lovejoy is a blight on the football world and the very epitome of everything that is bad about the modern day game wrapped up in one handy smug, ignorant and egotistical package. If you like this perhaps you'd like to seek out his DVD with Jamie Redknapp which is far worse than any of those video nasties banned by the Government in the 1980s and roughly equivalent to having malt vinegar poured into your eyes through a funnel.
Amazon should run a competition to come up with new words in the English language to describe how appalling this book is because as yet despite millions of years of evolution they don't currently exist!!!

had the misfortune to happen across this travesty of a book. Ridiculous egotism from lovejoy is a given but still this takes the biscuit. Clearly not a football fan at all; favourite player: Johan Cruff, he later admitted having once seen one clip of the cruff turn...says it all. please please don't lower yourselves to this please!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By H. Pearce on 31 Dec 2012
Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.
