Duncan Shearer’s incredible rise from non-league football to the international stage was a football fairytale. But away from football he’s also had his share of personal tragedy. Shearer Wonderland now tells the inside story of his remarkable life and career. Discover how he missed out on the chance to play for Alex Ferguson’s legendary Aberdeen side when he was a teenager; how he got an unlikely but amazing move to Chelsea; why he moved to Swindon Town and what life was like under Lou Macari and Ossie Ardiles; and how he got his dream move to Willie Miller’s Aberdeen by way of a very short detour at Kenny Dalglish’s big spending Blackburn Rovers. There’s also the financial irregularities scandal at Swindon, the personal tragedies of his brother’s near-fatal accident and the tragic death of his mother. For the first time, Duncan Shearer now tells his side of the story of his turbulent management career with Steve Paterson and how Paterson’s demons ? as he battled with drink and gambling problems ? brought to an end Duncan’s dream job at Pittodrie. Shearer Wonderland is a no-holds-barred insight into the life of one of football’s most respected goalscorers and a must-read for fans everywhere.
