When all you can think about is playing football, the process of signing for a club can be an unwelcome distraction. The meetings, the haggling, the seemingly endless paperwork and unfamiliar contractual jargon means it can be tempting to leave the negotiations to an agent. While there are many very good agents in football you'll hear plenty of stories from both current and past professionals which paint a very different picture.
After talking to a wide variety of clubs in all leagues across the UK it's apparent that trust, a respect for the game and familiarity are important for club chairmen and managers. We also know that you're not that keen on having agents turn up at the club to pursue or push certain players upon you. Now there is a free alternative - Players Come First.
It's a fact that players and clubs don't always have the most flattering things to say about agents. Stories of dodgy deals and a selfish, 'I'm in it for the money' attitude are frequently expressed in both the players' dressing room and club boardrooms.
