Summary

'As a player and pundit I've seen and experienced plenty of the good, the bad and the ugly. And let's get face facts - there is still plenty of the bad and ugly. Our game can be so much better and in this book I'll tell you just how.'

In his trademark tell-it-like-it-is style, Chris sets his sights on 25 aspects of the modern game that need fixing. From ridiculous rules and feckless agents to dreaded VAR and abusive fans, no subject is out of bounds.

Discover which managers Sutton slams for giving bland post-match interviews, which clubs are fleecing their fans and why he believes Messi and Ronaldo aren't as good as Best and Maradona.

In You're Better Than That! Sutton also reveals who has bagged a spot in his top 10 lists - from the best-value players and most entertaining teams, to the most underrated players and best FA Cup moments.

A former top-level pro player with a 16-year, trophy-laden career behind him, Chris knows the game from the inside out. Now observing from the commentator's perch, his perspective is shot through with experience, passion and occasionally a little anger.

Sutton is a man on a mission, determined to get under the skin of the game he loves and to call out exactly what's going wrong.

Brilliant, Funny and Insightful

Brilliantly entertaining book, highly recommended. Chris Sutton’s view on how the game should be ran is very entertaining, although some of it very much tongue in cheek is informative and well thought out.
The chapter on football and dementia must have been very difficult for him to read, due to his very personal experience of the subject but this added to the sincerity of his view on this subject.
Even if you me not a fan of Chris you should give this book a go.
