About this deal

Well done Beth for telling your story and I was pleased to read, in the news recently,that the Lionesses were successful in getting the government to listen to them about PE in schools. I also loved Beth’s reflections on different managers she’s worked with and how they differed and the stories of her fellow England and Arsenal legends. I really enjoyed reading this book, I could not put it down and stayed up far too late to finish it.

There might be some things that were lacking in some areas—writing, characterisation, plot etc, but there may have been a few moments that I liked.It wasn’t until the Lionesses started winning in the Euros that I started watching their training and interviews on YouTube - something that I do regularly with the men even though they share the “England” channel. Especially when our ‘culture’ seems to enjoy nothing more than pulling people down when they’ve reached the top. You only have to look on social media to see the nonsense these young women have to put up with just because they want to play football. She's also very open about the mental struggles she's faced both on and off the pitch, and it's refreshing to see someone talk about it so honestly. I felt like I was having a conversation with Beth and she was just telling me her story sitting next to me.

So is being a non football fan in London is hard being a female footballer is a billion times more difficult, which is what makes Beth and the other Lioness' story even more incredible. She was also named Player of the Tournament and has since won England Women's Player of the Year, the BBC Women's Footballer of the Year 2022 and been named runner-up for the 2022 Ballon d'Or Feminin.knowing that beth, someone who i look up to is currently going through the same thing as me, made me feel so much less alone. I can relate to that all too well, and it was really encouraging to read that such a star player struggles with the same worries.
