With well over 700 League team appearances to his name, Garry Nelson has an encylopaedic knowledge of the game, past and present. Now the former Charlton player and self-confessed journeyman footballer has recorded a day-by-day, month-by-month account of the myriad shocks, demands, doubts and decisions that he finds confronting him as rookie player-coach of Third Division Torquay United. One moment he's locking horns with the financial director, the next he's placating a disgruntled YTS apprentice. From being in the company of a persistent media hack to a hacking thug of a centre-back, Garry Nelson's account of the highs and lows of soccer's have-nots is an eye-opener to the problems and pleasures, triumphs and disasters experienced by a lowly club struggling to survive in the game.
