5.0 out of 5 stars The new, intelligent voice of football
It is a myth that all footballers are thick but Clarke Carlisle is certainly a sight more cerebral than the average central defender. How many other players could boast that their greatest claim to fame is competing in the long running tea-time show Countdown? Carlisle actually won two games before losing in the third, chiefly because he decided to pluralise carrion...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Career in the last throes of decline
I had initially hesitated to buy Clarke Carlisle’s autobiography when I read of the controversy in it about the different perspectives of solving the approaches to anti-racism in football. Compounding this was my respect for Dave Thomas's views on the unnecessary bad language which had been quoted in publicity surrounding publication. DT’s Jimmy Adamson - The...

Very interesting read from start to finish, his brutal honesty is what makes this a great book. Not your typical footballer's autobiography by any means.

This review is from: You Don't Know Me, But . . .: A Footballer's Life (Kindle Edition)
A very enjoyable read. Very honest and not the usual footballer autobiography. Being a Burnley fan helped relate to some of the anecdotes.

This review is from: You Don't Know Me, But . . .: A Footballer's Life (Kindle Edition)
This book perpetuates the stereotype of crazy immature footballers who can't grow up. I was staggered how this so-called intelligent guy could screw his life up on so many fronts. The fact that after earning 500k pa for a couple od seasons in his big years - he was left with no money in his pockets at times - is scary. If this is how the clever ones cope - what about the others? He's a likeable guy though and good to see he has landed his co commentator job on ITV, Have to say, having heard him this week in that role, he is excellent - as good as any I have ever heard - and I've heard a lot. Well done Clarke.

I liked this book, because how honest and up front the portray of how the life of a football player who played most of his career in the lower regions of football, coped with life's ups and downs. Furthermore, the humour and dark side of football and how it can affect the individual and the people around him.
