About this deal

Along the way, they’ll unlock wisdom for those of us navigating our own coupledoms, and for those still seeking their perfect match. Joking aside, though, Crouch reflects on the fact that life after football often isn’t the fantasy many envision.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company for a small fortune and is looking forward to a life of leisure. This grossly oversimplified understanding has created many complexities in our lives and taken away from us the very fundamentals of the joy of living.

It’s an eye-opening exploration of life after football, delivered, as ever, with Crouch’s natural humour and wry observations. There is a tattooist, a sanitation consultant and a president, a vacuum entrepreneur, a detective and a wrestler, and then there’s Tino Asprilla, whose post-football pursuits I won’t spoil for you, but he’s certainly found a niche!

Crouch is an adequate TV pundit, no better or worse than some of his colleagues on BT Sports, but what he does have that some of the others don’t have is a sense of humour. From the pleasure and pain of management to the lessons we can learn from Jamie Carragher and Joe Cole on not going to seed. Just as there are books being written to be turned into screenplays, there are definitely books that are written to be listened to as opposed to read. They live their lives in the glaring media spotlight, yet only really develop one life skill - how to kick a ball better. I talks about the struggles and demons facing footballers once they are too old to play professionally.
