Excellent book very well written,here we have a male sports star who has a routine check up only to be told that he has Testicular cancer , and how he fought his battle against it with the help of his football club,family and friends.It should be an insight to all males macho or not just a simple rountine test can be a matter of life or death.Also Alan Stubbs mentions about other football clubs and player's who he has met and played football with during his career as a football player.Once you start to read the book you can't put it down .If you are a footie fan then when you read about the Manager's,Players and the football club's etc.,then you think back in time and how football has changed.Simple and easy too read with plenty of club's,player's and managers past and present mentioned.
In a way you can say a book of two stories i.e about Cancer and Football,and about life how you can either be a champion or a looser here we have a person who has beat Cancer and has really enjoyed his time as a football player and how he got his chance to play football. Excellent insight of a footballer player,husband and father,and about Testicular Cancer.

Whether you are a football fan or not this is an essential read. Although if you support Glasgow Celtic and particularly Everton it will occasionally reduce you to tears. Alan Stubbs shows in this book, a fantastic battling spirit which must have been in born. A fight to the finish with cancer and his striving to play for his boyhood heroes, Everton is inspirational. If you don't like this book - there is something wrong with you!

I very moving story about the courage of a man who fought of cancer not once, but twice and still managed to live out his dream of being a Premiership. A lot of footballers whine and complain about previous managers and how hard they were treated, but ‘Stubbsy’ always seemed to appreciate just how lucky he was. A moving story.
