Format: Paperback
This is a great read if you:
-love your football
-are a baby-boomer
-are a Wanderers fan
-know Bolton

In fact there is plenty here for almost anyone who isn't a teenage croquet fanatic from Henley on Thames. And even they might learn a bit of history!
Gradwell cleverly interweaves some of his own experiences into the biography, making it personal as well as analytical.

Buy it and you will find out how an hard-case, adoptive Boltonian from the midlands ended up talking posh and selling wine for Stowells of Chelsea!

Terrific book!

Bill Bradbury

For all old-timers who followed the Wanderers in the LOFTHOUSE era, this is a great read, with memories flooding back. Having stood in the Manchester Road paddock for many of Roy's seasons, I had an eye level view of the way he curbed any attacking threat down the opponents left flank. He was so good he could, most of the time, close down his opponent fairly. You can work it out how he went about quietening down anyone whe had the impertinence to go past him on the outside !!
All in all a book to make one realise how football has changed ...... not, in my opinion, for the better. Thank you for many happy memories Chopper.

Format: Paperback
How this man epitomises the change in football over the last 50 years! Those were the days when the game was for men not the extortionately paid whimps of today. And no excuses about players being more skilful today- they were the days of Matthews, Finney and Lofthouse . How much would that forward line cost today? Most of today's whinging wingers would faint at the sight of the name Hartle on the team sheet. Ever the gentle man he would be the first to call for an ambulance for his opponent. I feel privilaged to have watched him in action in his great years in the 50s.

This is a very true profile of Roy who was always a perfect gentleman when he was my boss at Stowells of Chelsea and it was nice to read about his life before Stowells.
