On 7 February 2008, Cole was one of the 23-man squad selected for the friendly against Switzerland which they won 2–1, courtesy of Jermaine Jenas and Shaun Wright-Phillips goals. Peter talks to entrepreneurs, men of the cloth, eco warriors, artists, private detectives and budding actors, as well as those who've lost their way in addiction, crime and NFTs.

From the pleasure and pain of management to the lessons we can learn from Jamie Carragher and Joe Cole on not going to seed. After surgery on his knee to repair an injury he picked up in the FA Cup clash with Southend United, Cole missed the rest of the season.On 16 October 2015, Cole signed for Coventry City on a 35-day, emergency loan deal, [81] and made his debut four days later, playing for just under an hour in an away 0–0 draw against Rochdale. I found it incredibly interesting listening to all the stories of what former players from different eras have got up to post football. Joe Cole continued his excellent performances racking up a rate of ten goals and eight assists in all competitions, due to his performance he won the Chelsea Player of the Year 2008.

However, he was limited to only two substitute appearances in the tournament itself, [112] as England lost to Germany in the second round in what was to be his final international appearance. As someone who’s more interested in the business of football than the physical game itself, I really enjoyed this book and think it might be the best of Crouch’s trilogy. Playing in a mould similar to former England favourite Paul Gascoigne, he progressed through the West Ham ranks and signed professional terms in November 1998 [9] before making his first-team debut aged 17 on 2 January 1999 in an FA Cup third round tie against Swansea City. In January 2003, then West Ham manager Glenn Roeder gave Cole the club captain's armband at the age of 21. Cole made his first 2009–10 Premier League appearance for Chelsea against Blackburn Rovers, playing in attacking midfield in a 5–0 win.So what do these Peter Pans, whose careers end just as most people's are getting going, do with the rest of their lives? In 1999, Cole was part of West Ham's victorious FA Youth Cup-winning squad (alongside Michael Carrick), defeating Coventry City 9–0 on aggregate in the final. On his debut against Saint-Étienne, he gained his first assist after a solo run where he took on and beat four players to set up the third goal in Lille's 3–1 victory.

In June 2018, Cole was promoted to assistant coach with the Rowdies, while still acting as a player as well. He was substituted after just 23 minutes being replaced by Raheem Sterling after tweaking his hamstrings. He spent seven seasons at Chelsea, playing over 280 games in all competitions and winning seven trophies, including three Premier League titles, two FA Cups and a League Cup.The game finished 2–2 with Cole providing the assists for both of West Ham's goals which were scored by James Collins. Cole took advantage of injuries to wingers Duff and Arjen Robben to become a regular member of Chelsea's Premier League title winning team in 2004–05.

On 29 November, Cole made his first start for Villa away to Burnley, opening the scoring in a 1–1 draw. Peter Crouch’s 3rd book is another examination of the lives of football players presented in Crouch’s inimitable style.Cole scored his first and only goal under Kenny Dalglish's tenure in a 5–0 win against Birmingham City at Anfield in April. Recap: Coventry City 4 Barnsley 3 - Joe Cole scores his first goal for Sky Blues as Adam Armstrong hits a double". Crouch's writing style and warm, self-deprecating humour flows from the pages but by the end of this book, I wondered if this wouldn't have made for an even better documentary.
