Publisher's Summary

The best-selling anonymous author is back with the ultimate audiobook to challenge conventional footballing wisdom. This is football gift with a bit of attitude. Perfect for football fans and armchair referees alike.

With his trademark wit, opinion and candour, The Secret Footballer will guide the reader through: The pass - geometry and positioning and intelligence; Fitness; Skills and dribbling; Power & passion; When to listen to your gaffer and when to ignore him; Data and how it is used on the pitch/in transfers; Football academies; Match fixing, diving and other dark deeds; Tunnel vision - what it takes to be a pro; What the pundits say and what they really mean; top 11s (goals to scapegoats, chants to stadiums); 'Bouncebackability' and other words that just aren't acceptable.

    "Some good bits"

    Like the stuff in strategy. The indictment of English football, while harsh is probably deserved. A good book. Narrator is fine.

    "Much more informative & interesting than his last"

    Good insights here; less flashing the cash stories and really good nuggets on diet, training and tactics. I will certainly look out for things afresh when watching games and he sticks it to FIFA as well. An enjoyable open goal that.

    "Better than the second one"

    If you have an interest in football all 3 books have something in them that will give you an insight into this footballer. Hard to know if all are as contradictory, arrogant and as self indulgent at this one. Either way gives a look behind this fellas curtain at least. Thankfully the third book is a little less self indulgent than the others and more about the game but this doesn't stop him giving us his rather annoying opinion which at times you get the feeling are other cleverer people's which he is passing them off as his own. Anyway it's of interest of annoying.

    "The Grief"

    Only reason its not 15/15 is the grief I go through with all SF books trying to calculate the SF identity.
    Lose count of rewinds.

    A good book with some quality content that made for very good listening when driving to work. Well read and easy to understand, this book is up there with the others from 'The Secret Footballer'.
