Summary

If you were expecting to read Razor's views on politics then you're going to be disappointed. Anybody who wants to read that needs help! This is yours truly talking about some of the experiences that have helped to create the absolute legend that is moi. Some of the tales involve a bit of mischief, and most involve a drink or two. Most importantly, though, they're all a bit of a laugh, so I'd settle down and have yourself a nice little time.

The two things Razor Ruddock can't resist in life are a pint and a dare. That and 17 years as a professional footballer under his belt means he's got a story or two to tell. Chickening out of a fight with Eric Cantona, robbing Alan Shearer's minibar, cinema trips with Gazza, becoming mates with Ian Wright - Razor has seen and done it all.

Packed full of hilarious anecdotes, Razor gives us his take on the beautiful game, sharing his tactics (good banter is a defender's duty), red mist (and red cards) on the pitch, run-ins with the FA and his theory as to why Ingerland never does as well as we'd like, as well as his best ever goal and the greatest night of his sporting life.

Razor also lifts the lid on his bad reputation and reveals his regrets, his heroes, his greatest fears (notably upsetting the missus) and what it takes to make Britain's hardest footballer cry. Poignantly, he shares his views on the importance of family and his concerns over footballers' mental health. And the biggest surprise of all: that he was a shy and retiring young lad (and that his love of swearing comes from his mum).

Cameo appearances include: Bobby Robson, Diego Maradona, Eric Cantona, Dennis Bergkamp, Harry Redknapp, David Beckham, Alan Shearer, Gazza, Jimmy Case, Phil 'The Power' Taylor, Robbie Williams and Nelson Mandela ('Nelse').

With his trademark sense of humour and foot-in-mouth disease, The World According to Razor is like having a pint down the pub with Razor himself.

Cracking Book Razor

being a huge LFC fan I wanted to know how Razor managed to get to wear the mighty Red colours. growing up i had him in the same class as a Titus Bramble ( fooking hopeless ). He is and will always be a great in every liverpool fans eyes for that bullet header against the Shite at the KOP end. stay fit and healthy big man and I'm looking forward to more strip work on A League Of There Own.
