Now, Chris Sutton, the nation’s most forthright football pundit, takes an un?ltered look at 25 aspects of the modern game that need to be changed right away – and offers practical and, at times, controversial solutions.

From the standard of referees to the lunacy of the managerial merry-go-round, from shameful racist abuse to exploitative ticket prices and the shocking treatments of ex-players with dementia, How to Fix Modern Football leaves no stone unturned in.

As a former top-level player, Chris knows the game inside out. Now observing from the commentator’s perch, his perspective is shot through with passion, humour and occasionally a little anger.
