Mel Stein

At last...the book that does for the beautiful game what Hotel Babylon did for the hospitality industry! In over 30 years of operating within the football game, Mel Stein has seen it all. In FOOTBALL BABYLON, his novel, he takes an unflinching look at the typical ups and downs of a newly arrived Premiership club, as it slides inexorably back to the championship the fictional Thamesmead City. Chairmen, managers, players, agents, officials, journalists, television pundits, marketing and public relations even the medical staff and the groundsmen all their deepest secrets are seen through the jaundiced eye of the Club Secretary, our narrator. Authentic glimpses are given into the macho locker-room world of the players, and their legal troubles off the pitch: drink-driving, rape allegations, failed drug tests even a shooting incident that results in serious injury. In FOOTBALL BABYLON, every event described has, at some time, taken place within an English football club. Only the names have been protect the guilty.
