The story follows football-obsessed David Feckham. He is the opposite of David Beckham because he is rubbish at football. Trouble is he can't see that and assumes that when people tell him he is rubbish that it is just typical football banter.
His career follows a similar path to Beckham's in that he plays for a football team in Manchester, a pub team; he remarkably makes the England national team (the pub one), even becoming captain. He then moves to Spain working for a timeshare company there but is much more interested in playing for their football team than in making sales. He even meets the real Beckham a few times along the way with the accumulation of these meeting bringing about a fitting ending to the book.
The humour may wear after a while but I still loved it and all other football fans will love it too. Recommended.
