Review:

Ever since Vinnie Jones was pictured squeezing a sensitive handful of Paul Gascoigne in 1987, he has been marked down as one of the hard men of British Football. But the story of how Jones progressed from a hod carrier on a building site to an FA Cup winner and captain of Wales is about more than his willingness to rush in where angels fear to tread. This honest biography covers a troubled upbringing and home life--his anguish at the failure of his parents' marriage and the trials of his own marriage--as well as his exploits on the pitch. From the Gazza incident--"I just moved my left arm backwards and grabbed"--to his seemingly never-ending urge to get involved over and above the call of duty: "I've always identified with the characters like Ian Wright much more than with people like Glenn Hoddle", this is Vinnie in the raw. Jones has now built a career off the pitch, not least as an actor, but whatever the future holds for him, that picture of him and Mr Gascoigne will permanently ensure him a mention, honourable or otherwise, in the story of football. --Nick Wroe
