All bar Clarke Carlisle's, I am not a fan of his.

Also got Defiant to the end, Charles Buchan best of Burnley, Who saya football doesn't do Fairy Tales, Entertainment Heroes and Villains, Jimmy Mac the books, No Nay Never Anthology, No Nay Never volume 2, Russians Don't Land Here, It's Burnley Not Barcelona, Mud Sweat and Shears, Champions, Jimmy Hogan, Bob Lords book,

I have thorughly enjoyed all of them but I think Wiilie Irvines is just my favourite closely followed by Tommy Boyle and Margarets story.

On top of these I have quite a few of footballers autobiographies, wifey is always telling me to make some space along with my 2,000 programmes and get rid of em all. If I got rid of her there would be more than enough space around the place.

ha ha FC you better hope she doesn't read the site... you will have read the famed Dave Timberlake joke no doubt.

The Irvine book is a proper real story, lots of pathos, i had a few emails saying it had brought tears to a few eyes... ha ha must have been the spelling

You need an Roger Eli book and a Paul Fletcher, to see how different two stories can be, and how two books can be written so differently in style and tone.
