Professional football at the start of the Fergie era in the early ‘90s by one of the top guys of his generation. Lee Sharpe enjoyed a party, boozing with his team mates and the company of women, but when Fergie asked for more focus on the football he found it very difficult to accept this change of lifestyle that was increasingly being subjected on him.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

My Idea of Fun by Lee Sharpe

Lee Sharpe burst onto the scene at Old Trafford as a seventeen-year-old flying winger: fast, skilled, confident and clearly enjoying his football. The fans took him to heart as the first sign of the rebirth of the club under Alex Ferguson. At the start of the 1990s, with the Madchester scene in full swing, Sharpe enjoyed all the fruits of being young, good-looking and wealthy: he enjoyed a party and the company of women. After all, wasn't this what he'd worked so hard to get?

But increasingly his lifestyle came into conflict with Fergie's wishes and in the end, feeling his spirit being crushed, he decided to leave Old Trafford and moved to their rivals Leeds. It was only when he got there, and played under George Graham and David O'Leary that he began to realise just how good Fergie really was. It was the beginning of the end for him as a top-level player, and when he was sacked for having a drink five days before a game at Iceland's Grindavik, he decided enough was enough. Sharpe's story tells of a period when it was still just about possible to have fun and be a Premiership player, when a team would go out drinking together to celebrate. Sharpe tells it like it was, and you will wish you had been there with him.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
