I have known Lee Howey since I joined Sunderland in 1996. As a footballer I never knew him to do anything other than give his all. Regardless of how much possession of the ball he had, you always knew when he was on the pitch. This is something that became apparent to me, particularly in the area of my calves, the first time I faced him in training. Come to think of it, I ve never really liked him. --Niall Quinn
Lee has written a wonderful book and, for the years 1993 97 at least, I can confirm that everything in it is true. The only exceptions to this are any sections where my name is mentioned. Apart from bits where I score a great goal or something, I deny everything; especially stuff about... well never mind. No one said this quote had to be long and I still want paying. -- Kevin Ball
Lee has produced one of the best football memoirs I ve read in many a year. I m delighted he s finally found something that he s good at. --Gary Bennett

This book finished a bit quickly for my liking and while I understand the diplomacy shown when speaking about his brother my curiosity was spiked and the nosiness in me wanted him to let rip and tell me why they don't talk.
A well deserved 4 stars out of 5
The book deals with Lee Howey's football career in the 1990s, starting with him playing for non-League football clubs, reaching a peak with Sunderland in the Premier League and finally ending with non-League clubs.The book is full of witty stories of the everyday antics that footballers got up in the 1990s - some of it quite shocking.
You don't have to be a football nut to enjoy this book - I'm definately not one.
I look forward to the film version of this book.
I’d just started my own association with alcohol and watching football when Lee Howie signed for Sunderland so my own memory is blurred. Met him recently at a talk in at the stadium, he and other ex pros were sat on our table and he struck me as the most genuine. Thanks for the read, and the memories.
