I Get Knocked Down is the revealing autobiography of one of the most respected men in English football.
After he was released by Sunderland as a boy, Danny Wilson began his career playing non-league football for his hometown club Wigan Athletic, before working his way through the divisions to the Premier League, winning major honours along the way.
A popular character wherever he went, Danny's journey is littered with hilarious stories of some of the game's biggest names, including Brian Clough, Ron Atkinson, Viv Anderson, Chris Woods, Jimmy Case, Mick Harford, and Steve Foster. After a successful playing career with Bury, Chesterfield, Nottingham Forest, Scunthorpe, Brighton, Luton, and Sheffield Wednesday, Danny joined Barnsley as player- coach before eventually managing the club, taking them to the Premier League for the first time in their history.
During a twenty-five-year managerial career, Danny's teams have won trophies, promotions, and celebrated last-gasp relegation escapes. Danny managed over a thousand games for Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City, MK Dons, Hartlepool United, Swindon Town, Sheffield United, and Chesterfield.
Danny speaks candidly about his time in management, including: working with Paolo Di Canio; being attacked in the media by four MPs; managing MK Dons during their inaugural season; helping to turn a young Harry Maguire from a midfielder to a defender; and his controversial decision to manage both Sheffield clubs - Wednesday and United.
I Get Knocked Down is a truly fascinating insight into the life of a true football man.
