Playing in a mould similar to former England favourite Paul Gascoigne, he progressed through the West Ham ranks and signed professional terms in November 1998 [9] before making his first-team debut aged 17 on 2 January 1999 in an FA Cup third round tie against Swansea City. On 17 August 2008, Cole scored the first Premier League goal of the management of Luiz Felipe Scolari in a 4–0 win against Portsmouth. Otherwise, it’s a really interesting look into a number of other peoples post-football careers and pretty touching at times too. In the first half of the 2005–06 season, Cole secured himself in the Chelsea first-team lineup, ahead of Shaun Wright-Phillips and Damien Duff.

On 16 October 2015, Cole signed for Coventry City on a 35-day, emergency loan deal, [81] and made his debut four days later, playing for just under an hour in an away 0–0 draw against Rochdale. Cole's last game for West Ham came on 11 May 2003 in a 2–2 draw with Birmingham City, a game which saw West Ham relegated from the Premier League. Capped by England at under-16, under-18 and under-21 level, Cole was a full international between 2001 and 2010, capped by the England national team on 56 occasions, scoring 10 goals.Following his successful substitute appearance, he was included in the starting line-up for Lille's Round of 16 Coupe de la Ligue match against Ligue 2 club Sedan on 26 October. From those staying in the sport - the diehard veterans, coaches, managers, owners and of course the legion of pundits, to those moving on to pastures new. Cole scored his fourth league goal of the season in a 4–1 triumph over Ajaccio on 15 April, firing the ball just inside the post following a cross from Nolan Roux. On 17 February, Cole played his first match under new manager Kenny Dalglish in a 0–0 draw against Sparta Prague in the Europa League, in which he came on as a first-half substitute for the injured Fábio Aurélio.

The story was difficult to follow due to the narration switching from Crouchy to interviewed players and back with zero vocal change and little description of a change. Cole's displays in England's friendlies leading up to the 2006 World Cup enhanced his reputation ahead of the summer's finals in Germany.Across 16 Chapters and 275 Pages, Peter Crouch builds the reader a picture of the character that he has come to know through tales from throughout his career, or his perception and experience from afar for others, during their “main and more famous career” of being a footballer. Described as a "clever flick", his goal helped Chelsea win and overtake Manchester United at the top of the league as they were at the end of the season. He came on as a substitute as Chelsea won the 2010 FA Cup Final, his second appearance in an FA Cup Final for Chelsea.

They live their lives in the glaring media spotlight, yet only really develop one life skill - how to kick a ball better. From those staying in the sport—the diehard veterans, coaches, managers, owners and of course the legion of pundits, to those moving on to pastures new. In this book he examines some of the ways other ex players have also successfully forged a new life after their careers ended. Crouch speaks from his own experience and discusses with fellow former professionals too - just how do you safely release a near seven-foot striker back into the wild? Cole scored a volley in the 34th minute of the match [102] and got an assist in the 85th when he sent in a ball to Steven Gerrard, [102] with this contribution earning him the Man of the match award.His form saw him hit a run of goals towards the end of the season, and he scored a goal on 9 March against Norwich City blasted in from 20 yards off his weaker left foot [22] Cole scored ten goals for Chelsea in 2004–05 and ended the season with a Premier League champions' medal. I would recommend all young and upcoming football professionals read the last poignant chapter of this book at least. Cole's only other goal of the season was his only one in the league campaign, ending a one-two with Frank Lampard to open the scoring after five minutes away to Newcastle United, albeit in a 1–2 defeat.

I felt this bisected his previous books in that it wasn’t quite as good as his first, but on a par or slightly better than his second.Cole's first Premier League game was on 18 October, coming on for the final nine minutes in place of Christian Benteke in a 0–3 defeat away to Everton.
