Since his first appearance in an Arsenal shirt in September 1996, a month before the arrival at the club of the celebrated club manager Arsene Wenger, Patrick Vieira has been one of the great forces in football, admired and feted for his competitiveness and tenacity. Vieira has won two 'Doubles' of Premiership and FA Cup in 1998 and 2002, another FA Cup winner's medal in 2003 and Premiership medal in 2004. He won a World Cup winner's medal in 1998 and the European Championship in 2000 for France, for whom he has won over 70 caps. In this autobiography Senegalese-born Vieira candidly addresses the contentious issues of: Racism in the modern game, in Britain and France in particular. Alex Ferguson and Roy Keane and the love-hate relationship they have with Vieira. Referees - Vieira's opinions, and how reffing has changed. Real Madrid's persistent interest in Vieira - and his move to Juventus. As combative and compelling as the man himself, Patrick Vieira's autobiography will be one of the most talked-about books of the year.

"Entertaining. Four stars" FOURFOURTWO, 1 Feb "Gunners fans currently missing Vieira's combative qualities in central midfield can at least now enjoy them on the page." THE OBSERVER, 8 Jan "You've no doubt heard about Ruud Van Nistelrooy threatening legal action for some remarks in this book, but there are other subjects that get the hard-man treatment. Watch out referees, racists and football's big earners." SHOOT "The most controversial and eagerly anticipated footy memoir since Jaap Stam's." IRISH NEWS, 17 Dec
