Today is a massive day for me, probably the most important in my career since I got my England cap. I said to myself at the time “Ronnie no matter what happens they cannot take that away from you.” As it turned out, tragically, Sepp Blatter and his FIFA Europrats WERE later able to take that away from me by having the 2007 friendly v the Faroe Islands posthumously stripped of its full international status due to my so-called disgraceful behaviour towards a female linesperson. But that’s football.
This is a book. My book. My thoughts, my hopes, my dreams, my life in football, my loves, my dogs, my fears, my run-ins with Barry Fry. I Kick Therefore I Am is a book by a footballer who sees beyond football. I am very proud of it, and I hope you are proud of it too.
I have a book. Whatever happens, they cannot take that away from me (unless it got recalled because it had poisonous ink or sharp edges that were not suitable for kiddies etc.) But that is not very likely, to be fair.
