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.

David Fairclough started just 92 games in an eight year Liverpool career yet his standing as one of the most famous goalscorers in the club’s illustrious history is without question. Another 66 appearances as substitute boosted his Anfield career total and it was for his role as Liverpool’s number 12 for which he is best remembered. Fairclough was, and always will be, the original ‘Supersub’. Yet it is a moniker he loved and loathed in equal measure and one he felt ultimately held him back in his career. In this refreshingly candid autobiography Fairclough relives the highs and lows of a colourful career. He recalls his meteoric rise to stardom and the priceless contribution he made to the Liverpool’s remarkable success under Bob Paisley. From his key role against St Etienne on arguably Anfield’s greatest night, through a career that witnessed 19 major trophies, Fairclough lifts the lid on what life was really like for him in the Anfield dressing room of that time, his often fraught relationship with Paisley and explains the psychological burden of being cast as ‘the outsider looking in’. In an evocative collaboration with journalist Mark Platt, Fairclough’s story is at once a compelling insight into one of the greatest teams in football history, populated by the great players whom David played with and against, and the gripping and characteristically honest memoir of one of Liverpool’s most popular sons. Ideal for football fans. This hardback book has 243 pages and measures: 24 x 16 x 3cm approx.
