God I've just read some extracts from Gallas' autobiography. I think I'm gonna be sick, firstly, about Chelsea's contract offer, "Chelsea said, for their part, that they wanted to keep me and their offer was still open. No one knows how laughable their offer was and what I deserved." And then on the own goals saga, "Ive just come to the point where my heart is no longer at Chelsea. Youre going to put me on the pitch OK, but if the heart is not there and Im not concentrating, I risk making errors, errors that Im not used to making. We could let in a goal, so lose a match stupidly. This is what I said, word for word." What a *****, I thought we got got him so we could get rid of bellends that write idiotic autobiographies. My respect for Gallas has just entirely evaporated.

Did he really think that was a defence of himself? "Non, non, non zut alors. I did not threaten to score own goals, I just threatened to play ***** on purpose." *slow handclap* Bravo.
Little Dutch
Gallas is some serious kind of ****y****! Why oh why do these moronic footballers keep opening their mouths or "publishing" a book? Who gives a flying toss what a 31 year old frog has done and whether he wants to make himself out to be a total and utter crud bucket! Billy you are a complete knob and I hope to god we sell your sorry arse in January as I don't want a total dickhead like you representing our club and heavens forbid "not playing well"....

A few years back I read Malcolm X's autibiography, which is one of the greatest most inspiring books I've ever read in my life. When you read that and you see two bit brainless footballers coming out with their tuppence worth, it makes you feel sad that they could be so shameless.
Little Dutch
Not only shameless, but brazen also. The thing that makes it even worse is there are actually idiots out there that would buy the bloody thing? No one ever said football fans were clever I suppose!

As football autobiographies go, Tony Adams was one of the most fascinating books I have read. Although I lost an awful lot of respect for the him as a person reading what a complete a**ehole he was while at the club in his formative years.

I bought the Jose Mourinho biography. Mourinho is a sarcastic Jesus in the book.
k_chelski
I can see Mourinho's opening line now, "I come not to fulfill but to destroy."
Little Dutch
There's an actual chapter, examining Mourinho's geniality, i.e what type of genius Mourinho is. There are interviews with Psychologists " Mourinho is defintely a genius, just look at him". lol

MaureenHo is a self preening arrogant wan**r! Who loves himself more than anything else, he and Ronaldo should marry they would make the perfect couple, pair of knob heads! lol

I've only ever read two football autobiographies that were any good. Tony Adams & Brian Cloughs. Cloughys was awesome .... a little game to play is to count how many times he tells you how many goals he scored in how many games as a player!!! Legend.
Rocky7
I've not read Clough's but I really would like to, I've read Damn United and that was a bloody good read. My favourite Cloughie quote ever would have to be, "If a player disagrees with me, I invite him into my office, pour him a whiskey, we talk about it for ten minutes. Then we decide I was right." Classic.
Little Dutch
Adams book was brutally honest and showed him up to be a bully and generally a bit of a git!
LondonGooner
Perry Groves' is worth a read actually, basically because it takes the ***** out of the whole concept of footballer's autobiographies and he's incredibly self depricating in it. It shows what a bore players autobiogs are when a book released to generally dismiss the principle is worth a read in itself.
Little Dutch
I have heard others say that about his book. Maybe it's worth a quick squizz then.
LondonGooner
Tony's book started out having you believe he was a bit of a geezer, but by the end it's apparent he was a pathetic drunk. I read Cloughies second autobiography "Walk on water" I believe it was called. A really good read!!
