Where Are They Now Book Covers


Where Are They Now Cover

Where Are They Now is designed for football fans who are as curious as us to find out what happened to their favourite footballers after they retired from playing. The first edition of our book was published in 1996 and we thought that it was probably about time that we created an online version!


How often have you heard someone say "I wonder what happened to...?"


Not all players end up running pubs or become TV pundits! It's no secret what Gary Lineker is up to these days but what about the many thousands of players who have slipped from public view? The first edition of "Where Are They Now?" uncovered some fascinating post football stories including the former Arsenal striker who became Iceland's Finance Minister; Millionaires; Bankrupts; Vicars; Comedians; Singers; a Phil Collins lookalike... and one or two publicans!


NEW - As well as being able to add missing players, you can now add your own comments and memories to each player's page.

BANJO, TUNJI, I first met Tunji when he came to play for the Nigerian national side alongside his then Leyton Orient team mate namely John Chiedozie. I bunked school to watch him train with the Nigerian national side. I didn't get to see him train, but I shook his hand when he sat in the coach after training. The Nigerian national side were preparing for the second leg of a world cup qualifier for the 1982 World Cup - which they didn't qualify for; no fault of either Tunji or John. Tunji played a good game in the match against Tunisia which - if my memory serves me right - Nigeria won on penalty kicks.

MELLOR, IAN, went to school with Ian(Sale Moor Secondary) and played in same school football team. Ian and me were best friends but we lost touch after school. I remember Ian started as a postman before becoming a professional footballer. I now live in Scotland where I moved in 1975 although I was born in Edinburgh before we moved to Sale when I was about 3.

HEGAN, DANNY, As a small lad in the 80s I spent a week at Butlins in Minehead and Danny coached the football, which took place every day. Whilst I'm sure it wasn't a highlight of his career it was a highlight of my childhood and that's mainly due to him - cheers Danny, you were a great coach.
