Steven Gerrard, Michael Owen and ….Me
Mike Yates tells his own compelling real life story of what it is like to be one of the many thousands of young players who pass through the academy system, get very close to the first team and believe that they are about to make it, only to suddenly find themselves rejected. What was it like to play alongside a young Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen and be immersed in a world of professional football with a squad of Liverpool Legends? How can players prepare themselves mentally for both success and failure? How can a devastating setback be turned into a successful future? How can the game improve the development of young players as people? In this fascinating book Keith Miller of Miller Publishing examines all these issues and many more in an enjoyable and easy-to-read style.
