The Secret Footballer is back. And this time he's not alone.


What the Critics Say

"The Banksy of the beautiful game." (Shortlist)
"If you are tired of reading autobiographies that merely brush over what life as a footballer is really like then Tales from the Secret Footballer is something you have to read. The author's off-the-record look at the beautiful game will teach you more about football than you knew were possible." (Sports Gazette)
"What happens behind closed doors at Premiership clubs usually stays firmly shut behind closed doors. Not if the Secret Footballer has anything to do with it." (Loaded)

Much less about football in this book

If you could sum up Tales from the Secret Footballer in three words, what would they be?

Down Rabbit Hole

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

There is a lot less content about football in this book, and much more detail about his depression. I can see why this put off a number of TSF followers.

Which character – as performed by Damian Lynch – was your favourite?

All credit to Damian Lynch, did a great job performing the book. Even the dodgy Scottish and South African accents

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Could of done, 5 hours is very short for an audio book.

Any additional comments?

I still enjoyed this book, although it felt more like TSF was getting a lot off of his chest writing this book than writing about football. There is a lot of brutal honesty in this book that you really respect the guy for, however I think going into such detail about the quantum mechanics was a mistake, and the point he was trying to make with it kind of fizzled out.

Still found myself moving straight to the next TSF book, so it didn't put me off that much.
