In another TAW Special, Neil chats to football writer and author Ryan Baldi about his book ‘The Next Big Thing: How Football’s Wonderkids Get Left Behind.’ which tells the stories of 15 footballers who were tipped for the top as youngsters yet were unable to fulfil their potential.

With each player exclusively interviewed and insight provided by former team-mates, coaches and expert journalists, Ryan Baldi explores the pitfalls facing young players and what happens when plans go awry.
