You can paint some remarkably realistic portraits in anonymity, however, and every reader should have fun picking out the attributes that make up the sundry managers, owners, agents and fans who march through the saga, and there's a lot of hubris being heaped around as well. The consequences of Carl's foolish attempts to engage a Sheffield United fan forum are so achingly awful that you almost wish there was a second volume devoted purely to them, and it's only when you visit a real forum that you realize it's not that funny after all. It's reality. As, you swiftly begin to realize, is this entire book. The names, teams and consequences have all been changed, but we can probably all think of at least one journeyman player who is now sitting, staring, at "The Chairman's Daughter" and wondering how his autobiography got written without him noticing.
Grab the free preview of the first chapter and a bit if you're still not convinced, but my order for the full book was sent before I'd even finished page seven. At a time when footballer's biographies have become so interchangeable that you actually stop caring what any of them have to say, "The Chairman's Daughter" will restore at least a modicum of faith.
Oh, and I won't swear to it, but I think I've just read my first football book in ages that doesn't include the words "banter" or "bespoke." I guess that's how we know it is really fiction.
