The biography of Steve Claridge, as much a story of a Midlands cult hero as a vivid portrait of life in the lower divisions of English football.

Written in conjunction with Observer writer, Ian Ridley, this book is a fascinating account of the unfashionable side of football life, the life that most viewers never get to hear about on TV or radio. Tales of long treks up the motorways to near deserted stadiums and of ungrateful managers, this maybe the unnoticed side of football, but it's the one that I prefer to notice! There are many funny accounts in this book, many containing the larger than life Barry Fry, it's well written and very honest.
You have to buy this book, forget the biographies of Beckham, Owen, they are nothing compared to this incredibly funny, clever, eye-opening and downright brilliant book.
It gives a really interesting insight in to how a footballer used to live compared to the modern day millionaire lifestyle of a premiership superstar. A real down to earth player and person.
So I wanted to like the book. Unfortunately, it wasn't what I could call gripping. Still enjoy hearing his views as a pundit for the BBC though so never mind.
