From the Publisher
He made you cry with laughter with Paint It White, now the celebrated Leeds-supporting, cartoon-drawing, painting and decorating eccentric Gary Edwards is back. It turns out that his first book was only an undercoat, and now his crazy stories of life following Leeds needs a second coat. No wonder: Edwards, you see, has seen every Leeds game - competitive and friendly anywhere in the world - since 17 January 1968*. In those 38 years he's been there, done that and bought the T-shirt. But due to a large slice of senility and subtle prompts from his travelling companions, he's back with more tales that simply would not fit into the first volume. There's barely a pub in the land he can step into without some well-meaning soul coming up to him and demanding 'Loved the book, Gary! When are you going to do another - with me in it?' So here it is, then - another fabulously entertaining collection of travelling tales and friends remembered. Eventually.
