If you’re a fan of Scottish football, you’ll know who he is.
Indeed, if you have watched football in Hong Kong, Australia or Greece, there’s every chance you will have seen Lee play.
He started out as a striker but later became a central defender.
At the age of 21 he had lost hope that he would become a professional footballer in his native Scotland. So he got on a plane to Australia.
After that it was a case of “have boots, will travel.”
His dream of playing in the English league came to fruition late in his career when Chris Turner signed him at Sheffield Wednesday. Bullen went on to become a favourite player among Owls fans.
His never say die attitude helped Wednesday reach the League 1 play off against Hartlepool. Sheffield Wednesday won and were promoted to the Championship.
In his excellent autobiography called ‘No Bull’ Lee also addresses some of the hot topics in football today. He writes and speaks well about the abuse levelled at players today and asks fans how they would like it were they to go into work and be on the end of verbal abuse from thousands of people. Fair point.
The book is a more thought provoking autobiography and one all football fans should read.
I confidently predict that Lee Bullen, currently an assistant coach at Hillsborough, will become a manager in his own right one day
