Description

Bend It Like Bullard Jimmy Bullard may not have had the perfect hair-do, his Granada Ghia may not have been the flashiest of cars, and he definitely didn't have a string of Page 3 girls trying to sell kiss and tell stories about him to the tabloids. But what he has in spades is a genuine love for The Beautiful Game that few of his peers can match. One of the last graduates from football's old school, Jimmy actually worked in the real world - including as a painter and decorator - before turning pro. Maybe that's why he played football with a smile on his face, always says what's on his mind, and is no stranger to a spot of mischief.

Having played under the likes of Barry Fry, Harry Redknapp and Phil Brown, appeared alongside names as diverse as Neil Ruddock and Paolo di Canio, and as long as Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Jimmy has racked up an amazing collection of tales and pranks both on and off the football front-line. Told with candour, Bend It Like Bullard is the extraordinary story of his journey from cable TV fitter to cult hero. It will make you smile, chuckle and, occasionally, ROFL.

    A great read ! Jimmy tells his story exactly how you would expect, no half measures and full of energy. Having read a lot of biographies ( sport & other), this is a 9 out of 10, would have been a 10 if there were pictures.

    Excellent book about an absolute favourite player amongst the Wigan Athletic fans, of which I'm one. A legend on and off the field, just left Latics too early, would have loved to carry on watching him live a couple more seasons. All of his injuries occurred after leaving, so maybe he would like to turn the clock back as well. Hope he does go in the jungle some day, would be a sensation. Good luck in the future Jimmy, you know you'll always be welcome in Wigan. Joe (Wigan Latics season ticket holder).
