Growing up in the West Midlands, Carlton Palmer became an elite professional footballer, first with West Bromwich Albion and then with Sheffield Wednesday, Leeds United, Southampton, Nottingham Forest and Coventry City – picking up eighteen England Caps and plaudits for his determined, physical style of play along the way. But his story is more than that.
His autobiography is not just about football but is an intimate portrait of the man himself, told with honesty, wit and plain-speaking intelligence. From his early boyhood years Carlton has always had to fight for success, and this intuitive, single-minded determination is apparent in all aspects of his life, the personal as well as the professional. This is a narrative in which football and life intersect in revealing and fascinating ways – a portrait of aman who also happens to be a footballer.
