Description

It’s a lot for anyone to get their head around, but for mostly young men who have only experienced life in a pampered, dreamlike bubble, it’s easy to see how navigating the real world can be a genuine challenge and why some prefer to leave their footballing pasts well and truly behind. Joking aside, though, Crouch reflects on the fact that life after football often isn’t the fantasy many envision. Imagine having three life-coaches who had been through the toughest mental and physical challenges; a crack team of problem-solvers who knew in their day job that one mistake could be the difference between life - and death.

This is the subject of Peter Crouch's third book How To Be An Ex-Footballer (2022) where the ex-Liverpool and England star discusses his own transition into media success but dives deep into case studies of other former pros stories, what options they had and the various roads they've taken.

When Billy can’t find the informant, he wonders if Kate is secretly harboring her, since the two grew close during Kate's weeks undercover. Despite the money increasingly in football, retiring young comes with very real psychological, emotional, physical and sometimes financial burdens, oftentimes which footballers just aren’t ready for, so while an image of a former tough-tackling midfielder living the life of riley in the Cotswolds may come to mind, in reality the shift into retirement and what that looks like can be much less appealing. In this book he examines some of the ways other ex players have also successfully forged a new life after their careers ended.

Being with your partner may feel like rainbows and unicorns, but that doesn't mean you have a healthy, functioning relationship.

Similar to his previous two books, and in his typical comedic charm style, Peter provides anecdotes from his playing days to shed light on some of the characters he has encountered behind the scenes of some of English football’s biggest clubs. Waking up 117 years later, Bob discovers his mind has been uploaded into a sentient space probe with the ability to replicate itself. Eliminate negativity and change your life with best-selling author, happiness expert and life coach Domonique Bertolucci. A world where one team-mate comes to training in a bright red suit with matching top-hat, cane and glasses, without any actual glass in them, and another has so many sports cars they forget they have left a Porsche at the train station.

It’s an eye-opening exploration of life after football, delivered, as ever, with Crouch’s natural humour and wry observations. And also agree that it was difficult to determine which bits were Crouchy and which bits were those he had written about.

I wont rush to re-read like I have Crouchy’s other books, but it’s still good for anyone who’s read his previous.

Sir Michael Caine knows a thing or two about gangs: whether that’s joining one as a kid, or playing them in movies for over 50 years. I felt this bisected his previous books in that it wasn’t quite as good as his first, but on a par or slightly better than his second. A resolve to be a giant among men, to conquer, plunder and seize the greatness that he thinks is his right.In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money. It is sobering to learn that ‘around 40% of ex players go bankrupt in the first 5 years after quitting, a 3rd get divorced. Peter Crouch’s 3rd book is another examination of the lives of football players presented in Crouch’s inimitable style.
