I, Robot - How to be a Footballer 2
By Peter Crouch
Ebury Press / 17 October / Hardback £20/ Ebook £9.99

A true legend of English football, with a career that has taken him from World Cups to Champions League finals, Crouch is prized for his self-deprecating humour and his universal appeal that transcends club affiliation. Newly retired after a stellar career, the humble professional with a great sense of humour has gathered legions of fans hungry to hear his hilarious take on the frequently ridiculous world of football.

In I,Robot Crouch further lifts the lid on the nation’s favourite sport in his usual honest, candid and utterly entertaining way. Whether it’s offering genuine insider insight into how the game works – from striker selfishness or the art of bench-warming to explaining what managers or agents really do. Then there are his legendary tall tales – from accidentally becoming best mates with Mickey Rourke (though not Madonna) to spilling the beans about, well, Gareth Bale’s magic beans. And why does Crouchy’s dad still walk the dog in his 2005 England tracksuit? This book is a true insider guide.
