An exploration of the Premiere League with profiles of eleven people connected to the beautiful game. A must for every football fan.


The Team by Mick Dennis

What does it really feel like to be a top Premier League football player, with thousands of people cheering your name? What does it feel like to be a referee making tough decisions, with thousands of people baying for your blood? How does an ex-player cope with life when the cheering stops? How does a new, young player feel when he has a bad game? Sportswriter Mick Dennis spoke to 11 footballing people from all aspects of the game, on and off the pitch. The Team is a fascinating, in-depth portrait of the UK’s favourite sport.
