Marcus speaks with Pat Nevin, a Glasgow boy that tried to avoid becoming a footballer, but fate had other ideas! Pat played at the top, with Chelsea, Everton and Scotland, representing his country 28 times. But there's more to him than football, he's an articulate man that has lent his skills to commentating and recently writing two books about his experiences in the beautiful game, Football and How to Survive It and The Accidental Footballer. Pat also speaks about his upbringing, family, the difficult culture around Rangers and Celtic, working abroad and the lack of information there was about autism, to help with the upbringing of his son.
