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.

Some good bits

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