review Be Careful What You Wish For

D club By the age of forty two Palace was in administration and Jordan had lost nigh on everything Be Careful What You Wish For lifts the lid on the owner’s story and reveals for the first time how the national game really works Jordan spares no one least of all himself as he takes us inside a world where hopes and aspirations sit alongside greed self interest overpriced players dodgy transfers an. Jordan serves as a refreshing antidote to the hypocrisy greed and self serving agendas that pervade the modern game He can be blunt forthright and uncompromising While these are not ualities I normally find particularly endearing in a person I really admire Jordan for his tenacity and bravery in lifting the lid on some of the ills of modern day football Agents are painted in a particularly treacherous light but then again their reptilian practices are by now well known to the majority of us who follow the game Jordan has mastered the withering comical put down and there are some hilarious passages and lines in here The books flows at a nice pace and the writing style reflects Jordan s brash engaging style His passion for Crystal Palace shines through yet he certainly seemed to be saddled with a thankless task fraught with obstacles arguments and disputes at every turn This is an excellent lid lifting book and provides a fascinating insight into the life of one of Britain s most successful and talented young entrepreneurs and football chairmen
