Red Card Roy is the jaw-dropping story of terrace cult hero Roy McDonough - Britain's wildest footballer who was sent off a record 22 times in a career of more than 650 games, 100 goals, thousands of beers and, allegedly, 400 women. From his first sending off, aged 15, and the time he tried to strangle the referee in a school's cup final, Red Card Roy is a rollercoaster ride of football, violence, sex and booze. Featuring a who's who cast from football in the 70s, 80s and 90s - from his unlikely friendship with the late, great Bobby Moore to his run-ins with current Premier League managers David Moyes, Martin O'Neill and Tony Pulis (who he kung-fu kicked to the floor after five minutes of an FA Cup tie). But beyond the elbows and the early baths, the booze, the birds and the brawls, there is a poignant human story - the ultra-competitive dad, the uncontrollable temper and the uncanny ability to make the wrong decision at the wrong time, all of which cost him the chance to play football at the highest level and sent Roy down a path of self-destruction...albeit one along which he had the time of his life!
