Often recruited before they've worn long trousers, today's footballers become superstars earning huge amounts without ever learning much about the world beyond the training ground. Coddled by their support teams, everything is done for them. They live their lives in the glaring media spotlight, yet only really develop one life skill - how to kick a ball better. Then inevitably, when age catches up with them or injury strikes, these man-children are thrown out into the real world, utterly defenceless apart from their multi-million-pound bank accounts. Crouch speaks from his own experience and discusses with fellow former professionals too just how do you safely release a near 7-foot striker back into the wild?
