Razor sharp follow-up to the bestselling Diamond Geezers, depicting the harrowing rise and fall of Gazza-type football star, Lee Sweeney. A savage insight into the life of a celebrity.
Lee Sweeney may be England’s best footballer in a decade, but he’s also the number one tabloid anti-hero. His marriage has gone bad, his club is struggling for success, he’s being asked to throw games in return for hefty bribes, and his squaddie brother, Colin, is out of the army and out to torment him. His agent’s bent. His wife keeps running off to Florida with her mother. He’s fallen for a page-three princess.
He’s mad for booze. He’s mad for fame. He’s mad for money.
He’s football crazy.
