Best ever football autobiography?,
This review is from: Only a Game?: The Diary of a Professional Footballer (Paperback)
I don't know if it's the best, but it's certainly up there. This is the story of a journeyman footballer, told via diary entries, playing for deeply unfashionable Milwall in the 1970s. The journeyman pro was to become a first class football analyst (or controversialist, depending on your viewpoint) on Irish tv in later years but this story can be told in isolation. It's a page turner of a book, raw and unadorned and should have a place on the shelves of anyone who loves football and books.
