9780141012148: Woody and Nord: A Football Friendship

Gareth Southgate and Andy Woodman have been best friends since they were apprentices at Crystal Palace together. But while Southgate has gone on to play for a succession of Premiership Clubs, Woodman, after being released on the day Palace were promoted, has been shuffled around the lower divisions. This is the story of a friendship that has endured two wildly divergent careers and a gripping insight into the national game, from the staggering money and prestige of the Premier League to the precarious living and hard knocks of the Nationwide League.
