Part One: Mad About the Girl, or Phil Neville's Lunge Part Two: Wanting the Girl, or Michael Owen's Hair Part Three: Getting the Girl, or David Beckham's Knee Part Four: Losing the Girl, or Theatre of Dreams The day Terry sees Julie in the gym for the first time is the day of the England vs Romania match - the latest of the Great English Disasters - and the day his father announces that he's going to walk out. Things couldn't be worse. Only they could. Gorgeous Julie is a Liverpool fan. Even if he could summon up the courage to speak to her, Terry has a problem. This is Terry's diary as he tries to cope simultaneously with first love, the unexpected break-up of his parents' marriage, and the traumas of the Beautiful Game. A lighthearted, fast-paced, bang-up-to-the-minute and totally credible account of a 15-year-old boy who worries that he looks like Chris Evans, it is Alan Gibbons at his best and most readable.
