Niall Quinn began his footballing life in a different time,a different place - an era of low wages,big strikers and terraced crowds.In nineteen years he has seen the game grow and change almost beyond recognition.
He was on his way to becoming legend in his favourite sport of hurling when Arsenal came and took him away to London.Against the odds he made it and retained something of himself along the way.He has experienced both the ups,includng two World Cups,and the downs - two career-threatening cruciate ligament injuries and near-fatal septicaemia. His happy-go-lucky approach to life disguises an iron resolve which kept his career alive through injury,criticism and setbacks.
After a long learning curve which featured hard drinking and disastrous gambling,he settled into a club and into a life which suited him when he moved to Sunderland AFC.He has remained there during the most radical transformation in the club's fortunes,the changes in his own career mirroring those at the Stadium of Light. In his autobiography he looks at what went on behind the scenes during Ireland's tumultuous 2002 World Cup campaign and talks about his own efforts at kick-starting a reconciliation when Roy Keane and Mick McCarthy went to war.As the man in the middle his account offers an extraordinary perspective on events in Saipan and beyond. In his long-awaited autobiography Niall Quinn opens the doors to the inner life of a footballer - the failings,the temptations,the adventures and the good times. Born in Dublin in 1966.He scored on his league debut for Arsenal, against Liverpool,in 1985 and made 67 league appearances for them before moving to Manchester City in March 1990 for £700.000.He left the club for Sunderland after scoring 66 league goals in 203 games.Thanks to the joint efforts of Sunderland and the Football Association of Ireland he was granted a charity game in May 2002,a mark of the respect in which he is held by both club and country.He has played 91 times for the Republic of Ireland since his debut in 1986,and in October 2001,on his 35th birthday,he became his country's all-time leading goalscorer. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices, weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
