Synopsis

From the award-winning author of NO HUNGER IN PARADISE

Outside the global spotlight, footballers don't drive Aston Martins or pose for underwear ads. This is war. This is life. This is football.

Michael Calvin turned up for the first day of pre-season training at Millwall FC. 333 days later, he sat among the subs at Wembley.

Over the course of a season, he witnessed the intimate everyday life of a football club far from the glitz and glamour of the Premier League, and the unique characters that come together every day on the field.

These are dedicated, hard-working family men, close to their roots, 'playing for the people who hate their jobs, who'd love our lives.'

Forget about the over-hyped circus of the Premier League. This is the beautiful game in all its raucous glory: essential reading for anyone whom football is a way of life.
