We hit 20% of funding this week! thank you so much to everyone who has backed 'Next Next Big Thing' so far.
A little update on the progress of the book: I spent an hour in the company of the 15th player whose story will feature as a chapter in the book last week. He talked openly and engagingly of what it was like to be a 14-year-old carrying a hefty price tag when Tottenham forked out almost half a million to sign him back in 2000, and how coaches – both his own and from rival teams – treated him differently because of it. Really fascinating stuff.
With all 15 feature interviews now complete, all that remains is to carry out a handful of supplementary interviews – with coaches, former team-mates and journalists – that will give background to these incredible stories, and then finish getting the words down on the page. It's all coming together nicely.
Again, thank you to everyone who has pledged so far. We've still got a long way to go so please let your friends and family know about this project if you think it will be of interest to them.
