Talking Double Dutch

Tom Holland

Paul Holland is best known to football fans as a combative midfielder with Mansfield Town FC, but the undoubted highlight of his career was a member of the Chestefield team which gained an unforgetable 3-3 draw with Middlesborough in the 1997 FA Cup semi-final.  In Talking Double Dutch he brings to life the highs and lows of a life in football.  His story is not just about his time on the pitch, but about the characters he has met along the way.

Talking Double Dutch begins with Paul Holland's very first pair of football books, includes his Under-21 England appearance along side David Beckham through to his short-lived career in management.  In this lively account of a life in football he gives the reader an insight into the world of lower league football. Writing the book has been an emotional journey for Paul that has helped him gain closure on his football career which ended when he was just twenty seven years old.

In the opening paragraph of this fine autobiography, Tom declares: ‘I have never understood why some young boys are not interested in football.  For me it was always football, football, football.  I have had some incredible highs, some incrediable lows and have made some great friends.  I have also had a lot of laughs and a few tears.  For all those of you who have a passion for football, I want to share the highs and lows with you’.  And that is what he does in an engaging style in what is a beautifully produced book.
