Dean Windass is one of the real characters of British football. His exploits, on and off the field, are legendary. In this book, he lifts the lid on what it is really like to be a professional footballer in the modern age: the training, the big games and life away from the pitch. Deano charts his journey from a pea-packer at Birds Eye to a Valley Parade idol. The highs and lows of a career that has taken him from nonleague North Ferriby United to Hull City, Aberdeen, Oxford United, Bradford City, Middlesbrough, Sheffield's Wednesday and United, and back to Bradford again. His story has been nothing short of dramatic. Though never far from controversy, Deano's reputation as an old fashioned centre-forward, hitting the target over 200 times in his career, has made him popular with fans and players alike. He recalls the incidents that earned him a 'bad-boy' reputation and the moments of glory that made him a sporting hero. Ultimately, this is the story of a hardworking pro who stands out as a real man in the modern game. Deano blows the lid on what it is really like day in day out to stay at the top.
