Wayne Rooney: My Decade in the Premier League ePub download

'My Decade in the Premier League' is Wayne's first hand account of his 10 years playing at the highest level in English football - and for the biggest club in the world. This is his inside story of life on the pitch for Manchester Utd; the League titles, FA Cups, League Cups and Champions League adventures. A must for any Utd fan. Wayne Rooney is widely regarded as one of the leading football players of his generation. A talisman for Manchester United, since his transfer to them in 2004, Rooney is their star player and the first name on the team sheet. In the 10 years since he made his debut as a 16 year old for Everton, he has acquired trophy after trophy, accolade after accolade and headline after headline. 'My Decade in the Premier League' is the inside account of life as a Premier League footballer from the man every one wants to hear from. This is his story, in his words. From gracing the ground at Goodison as an excitable 16 year old to lifting the Champions League trophy with Manchester United. From the emotional high of scoring the winner against Manchester City with that overhead bicycle kick to the crushing low of the thrashing City handed out at Old Trafford in the 2011-12 season. This is a book for the fan who would kill to get just 30 seconds on the pitch at The Theatre of Dreams - to run on the famous turf and score in front of the Stretford End. 'My Decade in the Premier League' gives a real insight in to what goes in to being part of the biggest club in the world; the training pitch, the dressing room, the manager, the coaches and, most importantly, the buzz of crossing that white line and hearing the 76,000 strong crowd chant your name. In intricate, emotional detail Wayne talks about every season he has spent in the Premier League and how it feels to be one the most celebrated footballers on the planet.

Autobiography of one of the top strikers in the Premier League. In Wayne's own words, read about his formative years as a young lad in Croxteth, Liverpool, and his meteoric rise to the EPL, becoming the youngest player ever to score in the Premier League. He glosses over his Everton years, with most of the book concentrating on his service with Manchester United. Some interesting facts and anecdotes regarding his teammates, manager, and his family, but the majority of the narrative is focused on individual matches throughout the course of these ten seasons. The book becomes a tad repetitious when relating match summaries, and there isn't near as much behind-the-scenes insider revelations as I was expecting. I was hoping to read more inside information about what goes on in their lives off the pitch, but there were few examples to be seen here. FWIW, I'm generally neutral regarding Rooney and ManU...neither a diehard fan nor do I dislike him (or the team). Overall, I'd recommend it for Rooney fans or ManU fanatics, and it's not a bad read for the casual football follower, either. But I felt it could have gone a little deeper in some areas.

As a Manchester United fan, I really enjoyed this and could barely put it down. He comes across very well overall. He covers quite a few topics from his transfer request to his hair transplant. He gives a lot of insight into the day to day life at MUFC, what the training is like, how injured players get treated, the build up to a match, the attitude of SAF and the kind of things he says to motivate the players and how he felt in certain situations (and his reasoning for feeling that way) etc, etc.

The language used is very conversational as you'd probably expect, he says a lot of stuff like something "does my head in", or something else is "dead good". That isn't really a bad thing, but may not be to everyone's liking. I prefer that it is written as is, rather than the message being lost.

He just comes across as an ordinary lad, who just happens to be insanely talented and passionate about football. If you are a Premiership fan or in particular a United fan, I would highly recommend this book.

It's an okay book, not a blow by blow of each game of each season. It contains some stupid phrases in italics too like "I never played the game for money and I never will." ...okay Roon?
