He said: "It seems there are a lot of books by players coming out lately and, to be honest, I am one of the first down the shop to buy them. I think they serve a good purpose in giving fans an insight into what players are really like on a day-to-day basis. People sometimes have ideas about a player, which can be totally wrong and which perhaps a book can help to put right."

Although oddly enough most Arsenal fans reckon Cole’s book proves to everyone else that the ideas they had about him were spot-on. Click here to read Nolan’s column (it’s worth following the link just for the weird picture of Wayne Rooney!).
