Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

This is better than any turgid football biography on the bookshelves and well worth seeking out (Sunday Business Post)

A recklessly honest read that pairs huilty pleasure gossip with a moral compass, as TSF is force-fed a lifestyle that comes with being a Premier League footballer (Loaded)

Not since the days of the great super-injuctions has the identity of an anonymous sports star cause as much speculation as that surrounding the mysterious author of the Guardian column, The Secret Footballer, which has been running in the paper for the last 18 months (Choice magazine)

Présentation de l'éditeur

This updated edition of the bestselling and wildly popular I Am the Secret Footballer features a new introduction and an additional chapter. The anonymous writer of The Guardian's "Secret Footballer" column gives Premiere League fans an insider's look into the unseen world of professional football.

It is often said that 95% of what happens in football takes place behind closed doors. Many of these stories I shouldn't be telling you. But I will.

Who is The Secret Footballer? Only a few people know the true identity of the man inside the game. Whoever he is-and whatever team he plays for-TSF is always honest, fearless and opinionated. Here he takes readers past the locker-room door and reveals the inner-workings of a professional club, the exhilarating highs and crushing lows and what it's really like to do the job most of us can only dream of doing.

TSF chronicles the exploits of his Premiership colleagues with a gimlet eye and frank humour. Managers, agents and players are not spared from his observations-their mindsets, their relationships with those outside the sport, their behaviour good and bad. In his inimitable style, TSF recounts entertaining and eyebrow-raising vignettes, naming names and dropping colourful details along the way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un livre sur la vérité 22 février 2013
Par Fabien C.
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Attention, cette version est en anglais !

J'aime lire les livres en anglais et celui-ci est particulièrement facile à comprendre. Le langage est fluide et l'histoire dynamique où vous aurez enfin l'image d'un autre monde... Le football.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Vraiment pas mal... 4 septembre 2014
Par Pierre
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Amusant, facile à lire, bourré d'anecdotes.
L'auteur montre l'envers du décor, le côté "métier" du footballeur en quelque sorte (relations entre joueurs = relations entre collègues, etc). C'est intéressant.
A lire pour ceux qui aiment le foot.

arrivé en bon état.
Commande moins longue que prévue, j'ai donc pris le temps de modifier l'adresse car j'étais prise par certains impératifs. Cela aurait été inutile si j'avais mieux été informé.
Je suis néanmoins satisfaite de ma commande

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I am the secret footballer 31 janvier 2013
Par Peter M. Olsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Unfortunately, like many others, I enjoy the "inside" stories of sport and especially football (soccer). However, by remaining "The Secret Footballer" there was little of interest for me to relate to. Just broad statements and criticisms but no names, no clubs, no truth, and nothing interesting! If you're going to do an "expose", make it a real expose - not just hints, clues and general B/S. If you haven't got the guts to name names - why bother! Easy money? In fact I felt I was being generous by giving this book 2 Stars.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not as sharp as The Guardian articles 23 avril 2013
Par Walter Spoonbill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When the Secret Footballer was writing for the Guardian, he was my favourite weekend read - always topical, often personal, going behind the back page headlines to tell the story behind the story. My expectations of the book were high, perhaps unfairly so, but I felt disappointed at the end of it. The longer format & lack of topicality blunts the edge & the book is tamer than expected. A few high jinks here & there - & a chapter by his anonymous agent justifying his existence - did not take me far behind the facade. Ok for an airplane read - & quickly forgotten.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprised and happy this is avalable in the U.S. already 24 août 2012
Par Gareth Beale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is due out next month in the UK and I was hoping it would be available on kindle in the UK so I could get it quickly. I was surprised and pleased to find this available already in the U.S. I have read the column for the past year on the Guardian website and enjoyed it very much. Only into the first couple of chapters so far, but a great and absorbing read. I'll post again when I have finished the book. A must-read for any fan of the English Premier League.

See more details on whoisthesecretfootballer.co.uk and the guardian newspaper, guardian.co.uk/football

Finished the book and it was consistently good throughout. I'd advise not skipping the chapter on agents as a another reviewer did. It gave another perspective, and given some of the stories and questions about the recent transfer window (ending August 31 2012), it gives some possible insights as to why certain players did or didn't get bought or sold or went to clubs we didn't expect.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing controversial here 5 avril 2014
Par Bjorn Clasen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Secret Footballer (allegedly the sympathetic and insightful Dave Kitson whom I had actually never heard about before - but then again, I don't follow English football to such detail), reveals life off, and a little bit on, the pitch for a professional footballer in one of the planet's best and certainly the planet's most marketed league.

The further I read, the more bored I got. For there is nothing controversial about anything that The Secret Footballer reveals. And 'reveals' is far too strong a word ...anyone who can get the least surprised about anything s/he learns from this book is either extremely naïve or knows nothing of football.

Therefore: I really don't see what the big deal is. Of course professional football runs like The Secret Footballer describes it. It is not even very creatively or entertainingly written. Not that it has to be, but that could at least have kept me intrigued till the end.

The most entertaining (or sad?) moment does come towards the end though: His story about a student girl he met in South Korea makes for a good little story or joke. But that's more or less it. The rest is a collection of unsurprising everyday tales from behind the scenes. Which may be secret but are honestly not very interesting, even to a football fan.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Secrets all footie fans should know 6 novembre 2012
Par paul carbonaro - Publié sur Amazon.com

I worried that 'The Secret Footballer' would amount to a disappointing gossip book as he revealed all in giving the inside scoop of the world of professional footie. I also worried I would be disappointed because it wouldn't be gossipy enough. What? No names at all (because the author is still playing and wouldn't like his head kicked in). However, the further I got into the book, and the more the various aspects of the sport (fans, managers, agents, etc) were covered in their individual chapters, the more satisfying and well-rounded the read became. Although, to use a term once coined by Noel Gallagher, I have always considered myself a bit of a 'ceefax' about footie, I am just one person in one of the 'aspects': fans. So, what do I really know? Thanks to 'anonymous,' I feel as though I have been given a 360-degree tour, and for that I am appreciative. As for who 'anonymous' is, well... what can I say? My current best guess is Danny Murphy, ex-premiership with Liverpool and Fulham, now in the Championship with Blackburn.
