    Just reading Dave Kitsons ....sorry ' the secret footballers ' second book , ' tales from..'
    I haven't read the first but now ordered it . I'm gripped .
    Although he comes across above his station and has a high opinion of himself I have loved it . The hidden bans for drug users which has effected England players but blamed on bogus injuries made me sit up and think of a few . ( don't worry won't mention mods) , how most perceive Pompey as I do and wags ( oh dear ) we all knew it.

    is this a load of $$$$$$$$ or real?
    My opinion is he has a lot more about him than most footballers and it shows and he has heard third party stories and used it to his gain.

    Both books had me Tufts. Thought they were an excellent read, and a real open, honest insight into footballers lives.

    I have to be honest, i think some of it was complete ******* - still a good read.

    There's a part in there about going to Vegas and entering into a champagne war with Barca players in a club. Essentially, you buy a table a bottle of champagne, they return the favour but with something more expensive and so on and so forth. This went on for hours with bills of over 100k for the night. Decent lifestyle.

    He did struggle a lot mentally the more i read. The stresses of football are mentally demanding and as much as fans like to criticise players and drive their confidence through the floor, the actual impact this has on their mental state is frightening. They're just blokes. Blokes with a few quid. Fans should remember that sometimes.

    Thanks @nat,
    That's another thing he's honest about depression. You hear about players who are alcoholics , gamblers, addicted to porn etc ( I'm all of them by the way ) but in all seriousness it is as you a result of too much money and maybe time
