The reality of the dream

by Malcolm Christie | 29 June 2022
PAPERBACK
Like most young boys, Malcolm Christie grew up dreaming of becoming a professional footballer. Rejected by his hometown club Peterborough United and working at Somerfield supermarket, playing amateur football at 19, Malcolm thought the moment had passed him by. But dreams do come true. Just months after he was stacking shelves, Malcolm was playing for Derby County in the Premier League. International honours and a big money move to Middlesbrough followed as Malcolm became one of English footballs brightest prospects until a succession of injuries led to a premature end of his promising football career. Sad, funny and often emotional, the book provides a brutally honest insight into the reality of life as a footballer, an injured footballer and worse - a retired footballer.
