About this deal

Simon Jordan gained a reputation as a manager-killer early in his Palace ownership, though this changed as his reign progressed. Simon played the violin for our wedding ceremony in London, which we held with only a couple weeks' notice. In 2008, Jordan produced the film version of Telstar based on the play about the life of record producer Joe Meek. Some people may have expected this mortar shell of a book which was telling the world what a bunch of c***s everyone was and how wonderful I was.

I am a football fan and I did want to know more about the machinations of football club management especially in the Premier League but I didn’t trust the self-righteous Simon Jordan to be the man to enlighten me.

He also noted that within two weeks of being at football club, you become villain number one, despite the initial excitement and love. The show covers a wide range of topics across football and boxing - predominately - and is hugely successful in Great Britain. Simon learnt all the songs we requested and was even able to free-style requests from guests on the day. I enjoy listening to Simon Jordan on TalkSport and this book met my expectations of seeing a unique perspective of the world of football through a former club owner which is very rare. I think it deserves 4* as it was honest and named individuals whether good or bad, pulled no punches, and gives a behind the scenes look that maybe football supporters wouldn't regularly see.

The club is owned by the Sultan’s son, Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah – in English, the team’s name literally means ‘His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Brunei Football Club’ – and the royal even played as goalkeeper for the team. While we do get to learn about how he built his multi-million pound fortune, the majority of the book is based on his work in football, and only briefly touches on more personal issues - which is good.

He believes that with enough information, the emerging field of psychology will be able to understand how the human mind works and find the means to cure a range of mental afflictions. On face value it is presented without trying to justify his own failings, or bury those he fell out with. During his ten years in football covering the entire decade of the noughties he became one of the game's most recognisable faces.
