    DescriptionWho is The Secret Footballer? His identity is jealously guarded by just a handful of people. But whoever he is - and whoever he plays for - he is always honest, always fearless and always opinionated. This genuine story of one player's career is a unique combination of considered analysis, tell-all gossip and the joys and frustrations that only someone who plays the game at the highest levels can really feel. From the realities of racism and depression, to the pleasure and pain of sky-high salaries and the scandals of Christmas parties, The Secret Footballer reveals everything you need to know about the beautiful (and not so beautiful) game.

    The Secret Footballer is probably the Guardian's most-read and most-discussed columnist.
    Review quote
    "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 "A hugely insightful and opinionated commentary on the modern game" Morning Star Online
