The Secret Player

In the vain of Hotel Babylon and Confessions of a GP, The Secret Player will fascinate football fans with its wealth of insider knowledge and willingness to talk, albeit anonymously, about the inner workings of the game. Based on the hugely popular ‘The Player’ columns in FourTwoTwo magazine, the book gives a warts-and-all insight into the daily life of a professional footballer. Month by month, it chronicles the oscillation rythms of the season, from the trudge of pre-season to the ‘squeaky-bum time’ of promotion and relegation. The player himself has been played at all levels of English football – from Premier League to a season of non-League – and has represented England.
