WHERE ARE THEY NOW? - FOOTBALLERS

 

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.
