Multimillionaire at 32 Youngest Premier League football club owner at 36 His club and a fortune lost at 42 Owning your childhood club – that is the dream, is not it? Simon Jordan made his fortune building a cell phone company from scratch. When he sold it for GBP75 million, he bought Crystal Palace FC, the club he’d supported as a boy, and led them into the Premier League. Ten years later Palace used to be in administration and Jordan had lost nigh on the whole lot. Be Careful What You Wish For lifts the lid on being the owner of a football club and how the game truly works. Hopes and dreams sit down alongside greed, self-interest, dodgy transfers, boardroom fights and dressing room dressing downs. All over nobody is spared, least of all Jordan himself. A finalist for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year. It’s shortlisted for the British Sports Book Award for best autobiography.
