I thoroughly enjoyed this book which I bought because I am a Leicester City season ticket holder and a Radio Leicester listener. Yes there is a lot of swearing but Alan must be applauded for his honesty regarding the darker periods of his life. This book made laugh and cry in equal measure.

Bought this book as an Oldham fan and saw many of Alan's games including his debut at Man City. This book is a good honest account of what can go wrong after the cheers of the crowd have faded, particularly for a footballer who whilst a good player was not at the very top of the game. Don'tagrewith your choice as best left winger you played with though - Terry Curran ???? - Alan Groves had more talent in his little toe. Shame that he does not seem to have fonder memories of his time at Oldham as he was well liked by the fans until he literally walked out under the new freedom of contract although he glosses over that bit in the book.

This is not your run of the mill smultzy book by an overpaid premiership player. This is about the highs an lows of an honest pro, who faces up to his successes and shortcomings in equal fashion. Alan Young was a proper centre forward, nasty, aggressive with a win at all costs attitude. After he left the game he loved, he ended up with depression and was close to suicide. This book tells the lot, and if you ever wanted proof that one of today's gum chewing premiership managers is the nastiest piece of work you will come across, it's all in here.

Format: Paperback
This is a very human story by a person with real life experiences. It is not a boring 'nothing' story from a young overpaid footballer who hasn't lived enough to have anything of interest to say. It is gripping from the off and is written so that you feel Youngy is talking directly to you.

Good old "Youngy". If only the Blue Army had more No. 9's like him, we might have stayed in the Premier League longer !!!!

alan young, what a player. if you were a leicester city fan in the ealy 80.s you would appreciate the man as a player, and then the man, as he takes you through the highs and lows of his life. if you have been through a divorce you can appreciate how he feels. a great read for any football fan especially leicester city.
