Intimate and compelling, Calvin’s book vividly portrays players and management as family men, close to their roots: ‘We’re playing for the people who hate their jobs, who’d love our lives.’

Forget the glitz of the Premier League – this is the beautiful game in all its raucus glory, essential reading for anyone whom football is a way of life.
