Lee Dixon has made the transition from player to pundit with relative ease and provides a refreshing change on the MOTD sofas. The former Arsenal full back has a great in-depth knowledge of the game and provides some excellent analysis pre and post match that puts some of his counterparts to shame.

Lee Dixon was speaking to us, as he signed up for a new role as an on and off-pitch football experience to the fast-growing online game ‘I AM PLAYR’ by advising on scripting and new storylines.
What is I AM PLAYR?
I AM PLAYR (http://apps.facebook.com/iamplayr/) puts you in the boots of a professional player at River Park FC, allowing you to experience the life of a footballer, through the eyes of a footballer. Players have to balance both sides of the modern footballer’s life. Their challenge is to be the best they can on the pitch by training hard to develop their skills and earn the respect of their peers, whilst off the pitch building their profile and earnings by navigating the maze of endorsement deals, appearance opportunities and glamorous parties… possibly at the cost of their football playing career.
