Jermaine Pennant's 'Mental'

Five books in and the Football Book Club face their toughest challenge yet - Jermaine Pennant's explosive 2018 novel 'Mental'. As Jermaine charts his journey from wonderkid to Champions League finalist to Billericay Town, the book club discuss Jermaine's lack of respect for Girls Aloud, James almost driving into Mido and a very naked Tony Pulis. Plus we set the record straight with Glenn Roeder and play the all new game 'What Would Jermaine Pennant Do?'
