Product Description

Review

"Any number of former City players hold Jock in high regard and and are keen to point out how much they learnt from him and how much of their career progression is down to him, which is testimony to his management skills. Rangers fans will love this biography as it covers his time at the Gers in minute detail. The final word should go to Domingo Perez, Jock's second in command at Atletico Bilbao. He touches on a theme that we can all agree on when he says: 'Jock has no trouble with Spanish at his team briefings. But when he talks in English we all get a bit lost!'" --The Fox, The Leicester City Fanzine

"Of great interest to all City fans, full of anecdotes about a cult figure from the past. Inevitably emphasises the legendary manager's incredibly successful time at Rangers, but explains why he forsook Rangers for Leicester, and evokes memories of the 1980 Second Division title season." --City, Leicester City matchday magazine

"Blue Thunder is predominantly an account of Wallace's considerable success with Rangers, it is nonetheless a revealing throwback to a time when life was very different at the Us and a fascinating read for Colchester supporters." --Colchester Daily Gazette

It is a great read with great photos

As Big Jock famously said "I was confident before it started son" !!

Format: Hardcover
I'm writing this review on behalf of my father in law. Jock was his hero. He was lucky enough to meet him in the Mayfair bar with his wife one evening.
They became close friends for many years. My wife still gets emotional talking about the times they shared in the 1980's.
The greatest praise I can give this book and I quote from my father in law" its brilliant. Its like Jock is talking to me".
The author deserves a big thank you from my wife's family. His timely detail and love of the big man shines through in his well researched words.
Highly recommend.

I bought this for my dad, and he loved it so much I ended up reading it too. The book is descriptive and enthralling. A great tribute to a giant of the game. A must for football fans everywhere as Jock rubbed shoulders with so many legends.
