'Vivid and poignant. It paints portraits of players as people living in the real world, not the 7-Star hotels of Dubai. Men existing in their communities as central figures, not protected in gated communities from the hoodies.' --Daily Express

'An absolute gem - inspirational' --Sunday People

'As up close and personal as it is possible to be' --football-league.co.uk

'No punches are pulled by either author or club, ensuring a frank and brutally honest - and at times very funny - account of life at the sharp end of football.' --When Saturday Comes

'Brilliantly honest' --Daily Mirror
