I, Robot: How to Be a Footballer 2 (Paperback)Peter Crouch (author)
In How to be a Footballer, Peter Crouch revealed the madness and mayhem that goes hand in hand with being a big name in the Beautiful Game. With I, Robot, the former England star unveils more tall tales and outrageous stories that hit the back of the net every time.
What happens on the pitch is only half the story.
Being a footballer is not just kicking a ball about with twenty-one other people on a big grass rectangle. Sometimes being a footballer is about accidentally becoming best mates with Mickey Rourke, or understanding why spitting is considered football’s most heinous crime.
In How to be a Footballer, Peter Crouch took us into a world of bad tattoos and even worse haircuts, a world where you’re on the pitch one minute, spending too much money on a personalised number plate the next. In I, Robot, he lifts the lid even further on the beautiful game. We will learn about Gareth Bale’s magic beans, the Golden Rhombus of Saturday night entertainment, and why Crouchy’s dad walks his dog wearing an England tracksuit from 2005.
Whether you’re an armchair expert, or out in the stands every Saturday, crazy for five-a-side or haven’t put on a pair of boots since school, this is the real inside story of how to be a footballer.
