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.

Whether it’s covering pre-season tours or getting behind dressing room doors, few people know Everton Football Club like David Prentice. As a trusted journalist for the Liverpool Echo since the 1980s he had daily visits to the training ground, interviewed players, enjoyed unrivalled access to the manager’s office and found out what was really happening on the blue half of Merseyside. A long career following the fortunes of his beloved Blues has taken him to some strange places, including Peter Johnson’s yacht in Saint-Tropez, a disco in Italy with Mike Walker and on a boozy night in Dublin with the 1995 FA Cup winning team – a far cry from the days when he would support Everton from the stands and hope to one day wear the famous royal blue strip himself. He was with the Blues every step of the way as they clinched that FA Cup and fought off relegation several times in the same decade – forging lasting friendships with Joe Royle and Walter Smith, who were guests at his wedding as he married legend Dixie Dean’s grand-daughter. He got the inside track on the controversial sale of Duncan Ferguson, was called as a witness in a court case between Wayne Rooney and David Moyes and even had to stand his ground when he was effectively put on trial in front of the entire Everton squad over an article he had written.

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.
