From Gipsyville to the Premiership

Dean Windass

With Simon Parker

Forewords by
Phil Brown
Bryan Robson


“A startlingly revealing account not just of his career in football, but of growing up in what Windass said was often an unhappy home.”
The Sunday Times

“It’s a good tale and it's worth reading . . . it's different and gives you a good insight into football in this country.”
BBC Five Live Sport

‘You fat b**t**d, you fat b**t**d’.
Music to my ears. Bring it on!

As he approaches 40 years of age, Dean Windass is still making some noise on and off the pitch. But who is the real Deano?
Rejected for being too small as a teenager, he faced up to life working in factories and on the building sites before grasping his second chance when it came.
His colourful journey takes in the tunnel bust-ups and training ground nonsense, the card schools and childish banter. From the highs of promotion, to the lows of relegation and the terror he felt after receiving death threats.
Extensively updated  to include  the 2007/08 season, the drama of the play-off final and the goal that took Hull to the Premier League.

“The long-awaited autobiography . . .  reveals just how it felt to live the dream and become a Tigers folk hero.”  
Hull Daily Mail

“The past, which used to come at Windass in remorseless waves . . . this cruel sea of remembrance and how he turned its tide . . . [it] is there in plain and simple language in this rather remarkable book.”
Sunday Herald (Glasgow)

“Just like his playing style, Windass is direct and forceful when it comes to his life story and it makes for a page turning read.”                      Bradford Telegraph & Argus

“As you would expect from such a larger-than-life character, never far from controversy, his autobiography is a good read.”                       Oxford Mail
