Who IS The Secret Footballer (it's driving me crazy)?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tales from the Secret Footballer (Kindle Edition)
As an ageing football fan, I am often surprised that not much has been written about "inside the game", especially by those inside the game. Most football biographies...like almost all books in the genre, I guess...are self-serving and frequently anodyne, with little real content other than "we won this, we won that" or "I did (done) this, I did (done) that". This book is a good-ish read though, like most fans, I would like more names named and not just alluded to; my detective skills are limited, a lot of footballers have come and gone over my 5 decades of watching the sport. It is quite informative, however, about the game and I learned a little bit about modern coaching and carousing though (once again) I am intrigued to the point of pulling my remaining few hairs out trying to work our just who IS the Secret Footballer (a West Ham player?). I have bought the follow-up book so there will be more clues in that publication, perhaps. Overall, a good, interesting read for the most part.
