Wags At The World Cup

Wags At The World Cup

Forget Victoria Beckham, forget Coleen Rooney, you can even forget Cheryl Cole... Meet the ultimate footballer’s wife:

Tracie Martin is the true queen of the Wags - and this is going to be her year.

From her lemon-frosted highlights to the tips of her bejewelled bronzed toes, Tracie is the ultimate footballer’s wife.

The England squad are heading to South Africa for the World Cup and Tracie’s husband Dean has a place on the coaching squad. So the Martin family are on their way to South Africa.

And while the fight may be on for England to regain their rightful place in the history books, Tracie knows that the true battle will be fought in Gucci and in the pages of her favourite tabloids.

It’s old school wags versus the new breed of career girls. Fashion versus football. And Tracie is going to win!

What we think

The WAG fascination continues to South Africa, as the aging old school Wag Tracie battles for the attention of the paparazzi on the peripheries surrounding the beautiful game, Follow her as she battles against  the hard cold calculating new breed of career footballers wife. 

Hilarious at times interesting, but a wonderfully written true to life novel of the sad institution that is the domain of a Wag. Entertaining view of the driving force behind many footballers wives.
