In this interview I meet Lee Bullen. A no nonsense former defender for a few Scottish clubs and for Sheffield Wednesday.
In his forthright autobiography Lee reveals how he began footballing life as a striker, how he travel the world plying his trade as a player in Australia, Hong Kong and Greece.
But he also addresses some of the issues facing football today. He writes and speaks about how the personal abuse of footballers and managers has gone too far in the world of social media.
Lee looks back on the thrill of winning a League 1 play off with the Owls, about why he did not join the younger players in their celebrations and about his hopes of managing in the future.
'No Bull' is the title of the book written with the help of his friend, Alan Biggs. It is a very readable footballing book that avoids cliche and instead is very frank in its telling.
