After success with my first two books I decided to bring out a North East version, players included in it are, Brian Clough, Sir Bobby Robson, Bernie Slaven, Niall Quinn, Malcolm Macdonald, Micky Horswill, Fabrizio Ravanelli, Bob Moncur, Mark Viduka, Alan Kennedy, Jack Charlton and Gary Rowell.
The reason I have only interview past players is because they have been there and done it, succeeded in their professions and have nothing to prove, or hide and no one to answer to, therefore they give truthful,honest answers and opinions, unlike modern day players who tow the party line.
Find out about players antics, contract negotiations, team talks that don’t go to plan, how alcohol ended careers, disappointment over the England managers job, how they feel when they join local rivals and much more.
All these players have been sucessful, whether it be winning World Cups, European Cups, UEFA Cups, FA Cups or goalscoring legends. Oh how our North East clubs would love to sign one or two of them now.
The book is now on sale via my website shop ONLY, priced at £12.00 and if you buy one you are making a £1 donation to the Gary Parkinson Trust fund.
The first 20 ordered will be signed by Malcolm Macdonald, Micky Horswill, Bob Moncur and Bernie Slaven.
