My Autobiography: Safe Hands
"Gordon Strachan came up and was screaming at the ref that I was faking it, that I wasn't hurt and was just a ... pansy, a Southern softie. And me a Rotherham lad too. The physio was treating it when he spotted all this blood. He looked closer and found the studs had ripped into my balls as well and I needed a couple of stitches in them."
It's a tough game, and calling your autobiography Safe Hands is asking for trouble, but that's just what David Seaman is doing every time he puts on the No.1 shirt. As he says: "Goalkeeping can be a lonely business."
Thankfully he doesn't overdo the existential angst, and offers instead an affable account of his career between the sticks--from formative years as an apprentice with Leeds United, through Peterborough, Birmingham, QPR and of course, Arsenal and England.
