    That's the kind of quality writing I expect to find in a football autobiography.

    I can also recommend Left Foot Forward: A Year in the Life of a Journeyman Footballer, by Gary Nelson for insights into the life of an "average" player.

    Not a biography (just a newspaper article) but:
    Paul Kimmage talks to Tony Cascarino
    It has Kimmage's usual style which is a bit formulaic but, as usual with Kimmage, has at least a few interesting nuggets in the main body. Cascarino's media persona is a bit of an arse and it's likely that his real persona is another different kind of an arse but he seems to chat well with Kimmage. Admittedly, it is probably a bit more interesting for Irish fans but may still have value for others.

    Jimmy Bullard has just released his autobiography. I've not read it yet, but knowing Bullard it should be an entertaining read!

    I read a review of it which absolutely slated it as having nothing but tales of moronic banter and piss-poor practical jokes throughout.
