Read full description of the books:
Ah, the Dickens and Shakespeare of the green hallowed turf. I doubt Dickens would have met his new Italian boss and family with the phrase, "Lovely daughter, big tits", but Gazza's poetry was firmly and only ever in his boots. Hunter Davis allows the voice of Gazza to shine through, although I'm not sure if "shine" is the right word. Gazza sparkled and dazzled, maybe, but there was always a dark and somewhat manky side to him too, and the book doesn't falter in displaying both. Yes, he was a working class hero, but he brought a lot of the working class mentality with him, the kind that the middle classes would rather overlook - drinking yourself sick, hitting the wife, sticking pieces of shit in mince pies and watching your mates eat them, belching as a way of expression. In the end, you were left with the impression of a man totally unhappy in his own skin, struggling with the day to day pressures of life and unappreciative of what he's been gifted with. You feel he is desperate for the insight that will give him peace and make him happy, but that finding it anywhere off a football park is beyond his reach.

Read information about the authorPaul John Gascoigne
nicknamed Gazza, is a former England international footballer.
Playing as a midfielder, he began his professional career with local club Newcastle United in 1985. Three years later he was sold on to Tottenham Hotspur for a £2 million fee. He won the FA Cup with Spurs in 1991, before he was sold to Italian club Lazio for £5.5 million the following year. In July 1995, he was transferred to Rangers for £4.3 million, and helped the club to two league titles and two trophies. He returned to England in a £3.4 million move to Middlesbrough in March 1998. He made his debut in the Premier League in the 1998–99 season, having already featured in the 1998 Football League Cup Final. He switched to Everton in July 2000, and later had spells with Burnley, Gansu Tianma (China), and Boston United.
Though well known throughout Europe for his club career, his football career is particularly remembered for his 57 England caps. He also won 13 caps for the England under-21s and four caps for the England B team. He was part of the England squad that reached fourth place in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, and was famously reduced to tears after receiving a yellow card in the semi-final with West Germany, which meant he would be suspended for the final itself had England won the game. He also helped the team to the semi-finals of UEFA Euro 1996, and again embedded himself in the national consciousness with a spectacular goal against Scotland that was coupled with a memorable goal celebration.
After retiring from professional football, his life became dominated by his mental and emotional problems, particularly his alcoholism. His problems have received regular coverage in the British press, especially during his various run-ins with the law in 2008-2010. He has attempted to live without alcohol on numerous occasions, though numerous rehabilitation programmes have provided only temporary relief. His problems ended his coaching career, and he has not worked since being fired as the manager of Kettering Town in 2005.
