Dave Thomas retired as a Leeds headteacher in 1996 and did supply and consultancy work until writing football books gradually took over. As a lifelong Burnley supporter and season ticket holder at Turf Moor, Dave is well placed to write about his team. Entertainment, Heroes and Villains will be Dave’s ninth book and he’s currently working with cult Burnley hero Roger Eli on his autobiography
Entertainment, Heroes and Villains explores humble Burnley FC’s rise to the glamour of the Premiership and then its immediate relegation to the Championship. Written from the perspective of a true football fan, this fascinating emotional ride up and down the football leagues will be a familiar one for many supporters and is an enthralling read whatever team you support.
