This is the story of a young man who becomes emotionally disturbed with life after his parents divorce at the age of seven. In life we take for granted the importance of giving our kids a stable home which in turn gives them a great balance of discipline and love. This story shows how parents splitting up can have a huge affect on children who turn into young men and then adults. Simon Cooper substituted his family with the football casuals of Manchester City''s Young Guvnors. This is deeper than your average hooligan story, as the book takes you into his soul and heart as he speaks openly about his drug addiction and the dark paths it led him down. Football For Life opens up to us in depth of how powerful the game can become in our society. The writing is powerfully done so we can all relate to the struggle through Simon''s eyes. From the Madchester rave days through the journey of parenthood and marriage everything is explored in detail and depth so we learn about the power of sport.
