qu'ont lue tous les grands auteurs du XIXe siècle, de Walter Scott à Baudelaire.

I was delighted to be watching players from other leagues strut their stuff. Back then, we didn’t have Sky and access to watching Premier League games, so Italian Serie A on Channel 4 took over for me and I grew to love that league. When I was eleven I moved on from Olga Primary to The Blessed John Roche Roman Catholic School in Upper North Street, Poplar. Blessed John Roche was not my mum’s first choice, which was Cardinal Pole, another Catholic school, though we weren’t a Catholic family. My mum was looking for a school with high standards and discipline and found one two miles from my home, near Chrisp Street Market, so I’d get the number 8 or D6 bus there and back.

And in the school orchestra I was selected to play cello, probably because, though I felt very small compared to the older boys, I was a big lad as a youngster and could take it home to practise.

It was all a new level of learning for me. The thing was, though, that the lads I had most in common with were the ones who played football at breaktime.
