Having read pretty much every book on the hammers, this new book is a real insight into the role of a true hammers legend, his drive and loyalty to the Hammers in spite of obstacles put in his way is compelling. The man is West Ham through and through and this comes across in the book. I've had the pleasure of meeting Tony for the briefest time and he took the time out to chat and pose for photos. I would recommend this book to all Hammers fans and feel sure that if possible you will feel a even greater affinity with "TC" than previously felt. Maybe one day his dream will be achieved and he will be instrumental behind our beloved club. Great read, buy it!!!!

I've been a West Ham fan since 1973 and Tony Cottee is without doubt a Hammers legend, so I was really looking forward to reading this book. I'd read extracts from it in Ex (the Retro West Ham fanzine) that whetted my appetite, so I ordered this book.

The chapters covering the later years of Cottee's career were interesting, however the rest of the book is average at best, and at worst, a chore to read. When Tony talks of his attempt to get a consortium together to buy West Ham, it seemed to be page after page of "I know so and so who is a West Ham fan. He said he knew so and so who may have money to invest. I flew to meet so and so, but nothing came of it". Basically all you need to know is, eventually Tony got a consortium together which included the Icelandics who eventually took over the club. The Icelandics nicked Tony's consortiums ideas and took over the club on their own.

It is the chapter entitled "Looking Forward" that I found the weakest part of the book. A few half-baked and poorly thought out ideas of how Tony feels English football should go. He states that Rangers and Celtic should be allowed into the English Premier League. That's another debate of course, but he states "They should have to battle their way up from the Championship". Why? Why not the Conference, if they should be allowed in at all?? There are clubs in lower divisions than the Championship (Wolves, Coventry, Luton and Sheffield United, to name but four) who have a long history of top-flight football who would be more than a little miffed at Scottish teams jumping the queue. He then says that the loss of revenue to other clubs in the Scottish Premier League "could be alleviated by allowing Rangers and Celtic to continue to play in the Scottish FA Cup".

I bought this book for my son who has always been a huge fan of Westham, and remembers the time when Tony Cottee sighned for the club. It is a good insight to Tony Cottee's career at Westham and he speaks honestly and openly about his time he spent at the club, and keeps nothing back.
Quite interesting and my Son loved as he has asked me to get him this book especailly as Tony was book doing book signing across many stores and shopping mails in the run up to Christmas 2012.

Ideal gift for all those Westham fans.
