THE CROSS SPORTS BOOK AWARDS AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR The Sunday Times bestseller is 'brilliant, gripping, beautifully written, real,' says Jonathan Northcroft. So, you think you know Joey Barton. Think again. No Nonsense is a game-changing autobiography which will redefine the most fascinating figure in British football. It is the raw yet redemptive story of a man shaped by rejection and the consequences of his mistakes. He has represented England, and been a pivotal player for Manchester City, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Marseille, Burnley and Glasgow Rangers, but his career has featured recurring controversy. The low point of being sent to prison for assault in 2008 proved to be the catalyst for the re-evaluation of his life. No Nonsense reflects Barton’s character – it is candid, challenging, entertaining and intelligent. He does not spare himself, in revealing the formative influences of a tough upbringing in Liverpool, and gives a survivor’s insight into a game which, to use his phrase, 'eats people alive'. The book is emotionally driven, and explains how he has redirected his energies since the birth of his children. In addition to dealing with his past, he expands on his plans for the future. The millions who follow his commentaries on social media, and those who witnessed him on BBC’s Question Time, will be given another reason to pause, and look beyond the caricature. 'Compelling' Donald McRae, Guardian 'Brilliant' Matt Lawton, Daily Mail

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'Wrighty's characteristic honesty means his book is far more engrossing than most bland football memoirs' Sunday Times Ian Wright, Arsenal legend, England striker and TV pundit extraordinaire, is one of the most interesting and relevant figures in modern football. His journey from a South London council estate to national treasure is everybody's dream. From Sunday morning football directly to Crystal Palace; from 'boring, boring Arsenal' to inside the Wenger Revolution; from Saturday afternoons on the pitch to Saturday evenings on primetime television; from a week in prison to inspiring youth offenders, Ian will reveal all about his extraordinary life and career. Ian will also frankly discuss how retirement affects footballers, why George Graham deserves a statue, social media, why music matters, breaking Arsenal's goal-scoring record, racism, the unadulterated joy of playing alongside Dennis Bergkamp and, of course, what he thinks of Tottenham. Not a standard footballer's autobiography, Ian Wright's memoir is a thoughtful and gripping insight into a Highbury Hero and one of the greatest sports stars of recent years.

L'autobiographie passionnante du "bad boy" du football anglais. "​Je sais ce que vous pensez : ma place est derrière les barreaux. Je suis une brute, un homme des cavernes, le déshonneur de la société. Je suis celui qui a souillé le sport préféré des hommes, le football. Mais tout n'est pas aussi simple que vous le pensez." Vous croyez connaître Joey Barton parce que vous avez regardé, fasciné, l'une des multiples compilations des agressions, bagarres de rue, altercations avec ses propres coéquipiers, dans lesquelles il a été impliqué. Vous ne confieriez pas votre fille à un homme marqué par une enfance difficile à Liverpool, qui a collectionné les cartons rouges et que ses excès ont fini par conduire en prison. Et pourtant, vous avez un doute. Car vous savez que l'on dit de lui qu'il est l'un des footballeurs les plus engagés et les plus intelligents qui soient. Vous savez aussi qu'une saison lui a suffi pour s'imposer comme une figure marquante de l'OM, où la banderole qui l'accueillit résume bien l'amour que lui portèrent les supporters: " Welcome, Sweet and Tender Hooligan ". Et s'il fallait voir au-delà des apparences ? C'est ce que permet cette autobiographie marquante, dans laquelle Joey Barton se raconte pour la première fois, sans filtre ni faux-semblants, tout au long d'une carrière en montagnes russes qui l'a mené de Manchester City aux Glasgow Rangers, en passant par l'OM et la sélection anglaise. Un livre à son image : cru, brutalement honnête, intelligent, émouvant, passionnant. Son manuel de survie dans le monde du football et une immersion dans les vestiaires de Premier League et de Ligue 1. Joey ne s'épargne pas : il reconnaît ses erreurs et revient sur les polémiques qui ont accompagné sa carrière. Il raconte la prison, et explique comment sa détention a marqué un tournant dans sa vie. Et l'on comprend que oui, à sa façon unique, Joey Barton est un gendre idéal.

The Sunday Times Bestseller and Number 1 Sport Book of 2016 'A tale that's truly inspirational' The Sun An ordinary lad from Sheffield, Jamie Vardy has become known as an against-the-odds footballing hero the world over. Yet a few years ago, things couldn’t have been any more different. Rejected as a teenager by his boyhood club, Jamie thought his chance was gone. But from playing pub football and earning £30 a week at Stocksbridge Park Steels, while still working in a factory, his off-the-cuff performances saw him rise. Jamie had a wild and turbulent youth, but football became his saving grace and, once he filled his boots with goals at FC Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town, he moved to Leicester City. After the miracle of surviving relegation, the team of unlikely outsiders bonded together to achieve the unthinkable: Jamie set the record as the first player to score in 11 consecutive Premier League matches and Leicester beat odds of 5000-1 to become champions. Jamie has now been nominated for the Ballon d’Or, firmly establishing himself as one of England’s leading goal scoring footballers. Not forgetting his roots, however, he has set up the V9 Academy in a bid to find the next big talent from non-league football. Defying all expectations, this is the story of the boy from nowhere who reached the top in his own unflinching, honest words.

Champions is the story of Burnley's Championship title win of season 2015/16. In the world of the big city football clubs, Burnley remains the club from the small town that continues to defy the odds through its good management and careful budgeting. This is the third promotion to the Premier League in just seven years. It was a season that began tentatively, after relegation. Three key players had been sold, and the first month produced nothing too special. Two key additions were made, as Andre Gray was brought in from Brentford for a club-record fee and Joey Barton, to the surprise of most in Burnley. Gray's goals and Barton's leadership became the foundation for the promotion that followed. As ever, in the background, Sean Dyche's man-management and motivational powers provided the bedrock of the success that came in the final week of the season, as a three-horse race went right to the wire.

They say Frasquita knows magic, that she is a healer with occult powers, that perhaps she is a sorcerer. She does indeed posses a remarkable gift, one that has been passed down to the women in her family for generations. From rags, off-cuts, and rough fabric she can create gowns and other garments so magnificent, so alive, that they are capable of masking any kind defect or deformity (and pregnancies!). They bestow a breathtaking and blinding beauty on whoever wears them. But Fasquita's gift makes others in her small Andalusian village jealous. And to make matters worse, Frasquita is an adulteress (it matters not that her betrayal came at her husband's behest after he gambled on her honor, and lost, at a cock fight). She is hounded and eventually banished from her home. What follows is an extraordinary adventure as she travels across southern Spain all the way to Africa with her five children in tow. Her exile becomes a quest for a better, for herself and her daughters, whom she hopes can escape the ironclad fate of her family of sorcerers., whom she hopes will life for her daughters, one in which the family in an attempt to give her daughters a chance at living another kind of life. The Threads of the Heart possesses the lyric beauty of a prose poem and the narrative power of a myth.

'They've kicked it away again, for God's sake!', 'You halfwit!', there's nothing traditional about Brian Moore's style of commentary but then there's not much that's traditional about the man. Brian Moore made his name, of course, as a take-no-prisoners hooker at the heart of the England rugby team's pack, one of the game's original hard men at a time when rugby was still an amateur sport. And since his retirement he has earned a reputation as a similarly unforgiving pundit, never afraid to tell it like it is and give an earful to anyone unlucky enough to meet with his disapproval. In this controversial, funny and forthright collection of thoughts and writings, Brian Moore sets the world to rights in his own inimitable fashion. Ranging from the problems with the England rugby team today to the 'soap opera' that is the FA, the feeble state of British tennis and the threats posed by corruption and drug-taking,Brian shares his unique insights and not-so-unique frustrations about the world of sport and beyond. The Thoughts of Chairman Mooreis an engaging and outspoken collection of articles from one of our most admired commentators.
