    Mine would be Ed Woodward. Moyes/Van Gaal have been quite vocal publicly on their dismissals at United, so would love to read Ed Woodward’s thoughts on these 2, build up to their sackings etc.

    Rio Ferdinand shared some insight into Moyes’ management - Making the players train in a public park, making Carrick watch Leon Osman videos etc, so I’m sure Ed Woodward has a few good stories to tell on both Moyes and Van Gaal with his eccentric behaviour.

    Yours?

    Autobiographies are generally bollocks.

    An accurate biography of Roman Abramovic would be very interesting.

    David Gill on working with Fergie and the Glazers would be pretty interesting I reckon.

    An autobiography from Ron Atkinson might be worth reading.

    Woodwood is a good shout, he has overseen a hell of a lot in the short time in his current role.

    A David Gill one would be very a interesting read. Apart from that I can't think of many I'd want to read. The modern day chairman/owner are different to what they used to be, a lot of them nowadays are just attention seekers who want the fans to worship them, Sullivan/Gold (West Ham) Fernandes (QPR) Xia (Aston Villa) MacAnthony (Peterborough) Moshiri (Everton) Levy (Spurs)

    Arsene's promised to write a book one day. Tell you what, I'm not queueing for hours only to find that he nearly signed it.

    Maybe Brazilian Ronaldo to see what really happened at the World Cup and the build up to it

    Definitely Woodward's. I have a soft spot for that man.

    And as @duffer said, Abramovic would be interesting.

    If he could be at all honest in such a book, and it would be asking an awful lot for him to do so, but a Sepp Blatter one might be a good read.

    Also a Marta one (female Brazilian footballer) would be good, as it would be good to read about the changes or more likely the lack of them in the women's game in Brazil, plus her travels in her career.

    Also an actual Messi biography, not a book written by someone else about him, but actually a book by himself, so that we can get his actual views and opinions on various matters.

    An updated Ibra biography to include his time with us, would be a good read.

    Jose needs to update his so we can finally find out what actually went on and why Chelsea tanked in the 15-16 season.

    Would also like to really know why Ray Wilkins had to leave Chelsea suddenly in 2010 and he hasn't been given a reason why.

    I’d love to read one from Levy. Pick his brain a bit. Very curious of what his thought process is when he gets big offers for players.

    There is one. Talks about Fergie being tapped up by Bobby Charlton at the ‘86 World Cup for his United job.

    Aye. Most autobiographies are a waste of time because nobody is honest enough to tell the complete truth.

    I'd love to read a truthful biography on Moyes during his time at Utd. It would be both hilarious and infuriating.

    Levy, without a debt. He rarely gives interviews and has been at the helm for a long time.

    Zamparini, just to understand how his thought process for hiring and sacking managers works.

    Alan Smith (The Utd one). Was a huge fan of his, had the same hair and everything. He seemed a really good lad. I'd also be interested to hear about the squad rebuild at that time, the legbreak, the rehab etc etc.

    If I could unread one it would be John Aldridge's, Aldo, Sound as a Pound. I read to help with insomnia and it gave me insomnia plus depression.
