Starting at Celtic Boys Club, over a 20-year career, Pat Nevin has played for Clyde, Chelsea, Everton, Tranmere Rovers, Kilmarnock and Motherwell. He has won 28 caps for Scotland across a ten-year international career. Nevin was chair of the Professional Footballer's Association and since retiring as a player has worked as chief executive of Motherwell. He is now a football writer and broadcaster for Radio 5 Live, BBC World Service, Chelsea TV, BBC Sport website, and Ireland's Newstalk Radio. A voracious vinyl collector, he still loves Indie music and the Arts, and can be often caught DJing at clubs or festivals around the UK. In 2021 he published his first memoir, THE ACCIDENTAL FOOTBALLER, which was a Sunday Times bestseller.
The good news for those who loved THE ACCIDENTAL FOOTBALLER: this
new book is even better. There were times as I read Pat Nevin's
account of his years running - or, trying to run - Motherwell, I
had to remind myself to breathe. It's a thrilling read - funny,
nerve-wracking, precise and very, very human
