Where Are They Now Book Covers

Have you ever wondered what happened to all of those players that you have seen come and go over the years? The heroes and the villains? The saints and the sinners? The stars that you talked about for years after they had retired and those you instantly forgot?

If so, Where Are They Now? is definitely for you!

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!

I went to the same senior school as Gary. He was a nice bloke, always ready with a smile whenever you saw him. I haven't seen him since I left school, but I'm glad he enjoyed such a successful career in football.

My dad, Tony Pickrell, always spoke fondly of Alan Durban. They played together in their young days at Cardiff City (1960-62). I can only endorse the comments below. A real Gentleman.

Handed me the FA Cup for photos in the old Gunners shop on Anenell Rd when we won in 79. He always had time for a chat.

I remember watching Gerry play for Stella before he went to Bohs. He was a standout player at 13.

Lol I was a chambermaid in the holiday in in Liverpool in 1980. All the Everton players would stay some lived there. I use to clean Gary’s room. He was quite tidy and always smelt lovely of aftershave . Always polite, nice nature xx

Scored a penalty against him in the playground at school, but that’s where our footie careers went in opposite directions from there on!
