Product description

Review

"Roy McDonough would eat Vinnie Jones for breakfast." --The Daily Telegraph

''A lower-league football legend, who was Premier League with a drink in his hand.'' --Paul Merson

''An eye-opening journey deep into the dark reaches of football's lower levels. This book is as far removed from all-seater stadiums, perfect pitches and the pasta-and-hydration culture of modern football as you could possibly get. You can feel every crunching challenge and almost taste the beer... it's not for the faint hearted!'' -- FourFourTwo

''The story of much-travelled and thoroughly incendiary former lower league player and manager Roy McDonough, Red Card Roy is a superb portrait of a fascinating character.'' -- Oliver Holt, chief sports writer Daily Mirror

''Roy McDonough didn't pull any punches when he played - and certainly doesn't now in this roller coaster of an autobiography. He tells it how it was - one great adventure, in which Roy was the Ringmaster, Comedian and Grandmaster Barman. Fantastic memories - drunken or otherwise - in which there was a very good football player having the time of his life.'' --Terry Butcher

''Roy was the George Best of the lower leagues.'' --Mick Rathbone, author of The Smell of Football

''The perfect antidote to anyone who believes football begins and ends with the Premier League. Red Card Roy is football in the raw and a brilliant read.'' --Dave Kidd, chief sports writer, The People

''A very readable book written by a player who plied his trade out of the limelight... Roy writes with brutal honesty, pulls no punches and doesn't hide away from anything that went on.'' -- John Motson

''Down where the wild things are, McDonough's reputation as football's Vlad the Impaler preceeded him.'' ----- Tony Parsons, best-selling author.

''Roy gave me my big break in football - coaching me both on the pitch and down the pub - propelling me to a Premier League career and the 2002 World Cup. He was a loveable rogue who worked hard and played hard. The type of genuine character sadly missing from the modern-day game.'' --Former Ireland captain, Mark Kinsella
