Synopsis

You've heard of me, right? I'm Mikey Wilson, aka 'Little Giggs', the Manchester boy born to play at the Theatre of Dreams - and this is my story. Everyone gets a book in the end. The bit-part players. The wives. Even some of the ex-wives. But this is no ordinary life right here. No, this is proper Roy of the Rovers stuff: last minute goals, amazing comebacks and one of the most dramatic debuts in history. I came up at Manchester United with the Class of '92, real legends: Beckham, Scholesy, the Neville Sisters. And then there's Ryan Giggs. The last great gentleman of the game. The most successful player of all time. Fergie went to his house to sign him up, and he did the same with me, you know? Still, not everyone's as lucky as Ryan. It didn't help when my dad did a Houdini two days before my debut. And then there was Giggsy's pass when I was clean through - if you didn't know what a great professional he is, you might've thought he was jealous of me. I wonder sometimes, late at nights. I live on my own now. He hasn't returned my letters recently . . . But you know my story already, right? Ryan? Let me begin.
