I am not a football fan, yet I found this ebook locally historical, full of football facts, and more importantly very humourous!! One gets the sense of actually being 'on the road' with this author. Although he needs to know the difference between Bucks Fizz & Brotherhood Of Man!! The latter never took their kit off. Great Book, well recommended, good value for money. I also enjoyed the 4,000 holes stories mimicking the facts & feelings of the fans at the time. Excellent Read!!

Fist class raed about a hard up football fan who laways had enough beer money and enough for his tickets to watch Rovers.
