Multimillionaire at 32 Youngest Premier League football club owner at 36 His club and a fortune lost at 42 Owning your childhood club - that's the dream, isn't it? Simon Jordan made his fortune building a mobile phone company from scratch. When he sold it for GBP75 million, he bought Crystal Palace FC, the club he'd supported as a boy, and led them into the Premier League. Ten years later Palace was in administration and Jordan had lost nigh on everything. Be Careful What You Wish For lifts the lid on being the owner of a football club and how the game really works. Hopes and dreams sit alongside greed, self-interest, dodgy transfers, boardroom fights and dressing room dressing downs. Throughout no one is spared, least of all Jordan himself. A finalist for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year. It is shortlisted for the British Sports Book Award for best autobiography.
