THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
'The beautiful game has taught me a lot, but I've had quite a life outside of football too. This book is full of my best stories - kickabouts with jumpers for goalposts with Bobby Moore, mine and Sandra's disastrous honeymoon to Torquay in a dodgy car and my funniest 'Mr Pastry' moments - as well as my thoughts on the important things in life.
I'm finally sharing what I've learned on and off the pitch: from growing up poor in Poplar to the heights of the Premiership and even lying in a coffin with a load of rats on national television. It's everything I know about true team spirit, hard work, tough times, why family are so important and why everyone deserves respect no matter whether they're royal or sleeping rough - and, of course, the real joy of a jam roly-poly.'
