Andy Woodward was a wide-eyed, hopeful footballer playing for Stockport Boys, when Barry Bennell first noticed him... Andy was 11 years old, and Bennell a youth coach with a big reputation for spotting and nurturing young footballing talent. The clubs Bennell worked for and the parents of the boys he coached, trusted and believed in him, inviting him into their lives and their homes. But behind the charismatic mask was a profoundly evil man willing to go to any lengths to satisfy his own dark appetites. A compelling and relevant story of the dark secret at the heart of football and another chapter in the ongoing expose of institutionalised corruption.

Inspired by the stories Danny and I have shared with each other about what life in football is really like: in the dressing room, in the commentary box, on the pitch and – with the appropriate pixellation – in the showers afterwards! What’s it really like to play with Messi? I wouldn’t know, but I have starred alongside him in an advert for Walkers crisps. And, well, his performance was world-class. And what is a life in football really like? You won’t learn much from the dull-as-dishwater post-match interviews – it’s a world of secrets, superstitions, laughs and personalities, and let me tell you, half of it you won’t believe. I’ve looked back at my playing days, from England to Leicester, Everton to Barcelona, Tottenham to, er, Nagoya Grampus Eight, and shared the chaotic behind-the-scenes secrets of Match of the Day – and Danny has chipped in with stories from a lifetime following the game as a fan. From Italia ’90 to Leicester’s Premier League fairytale, from yellow cards to World Cup trophies (I’ve never been awarded either), you’ll find it all here – everything you always wanted to know about football, but didn’t realise that you did.
