5.0 out of 5 stars COULDNT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN, 8 Jun 2007
I waited till this book came out on paperback, took it on holiday and could not put it down till i had finished it.

I wont go into great detail, but what Paul has gone through in his life is really quite incredible, i remember him as a player , but this book lets you see the troubles the man has had throughout his life.Some may well be self induced, others really heart breaking to read.

For me, one of the best books i have ever read, and i have a lot of respect for Paul after reading this, it is as i see it a very honest book that deals with his problems with drink throughout his life and playing career.

Hope someone makes this into a film.

All the best Paul.

4.0 out of 5 stars TALK SPORTS MAIN MAN, 12 Jan 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been listening to Alan on talk sport for a good few years now, and have enjoyed his show ,like most listeners.

What a lot of people do not realise , is that Alan was a great player, in his days.Things however move on, and Alan and mate Mr Parry document the ups and downs of his times as a footballer, and now as one of the uk,s best sports broadcasters.He probably has a better social life than 99% of the rest of Britain. You will laugh at a lot of what he has been up to over the years, you will also be surprised to find out big AL, has had some terrible bad times as well.

To fans of talk sport, this is a must.To football fans, horse racing fans,or just somebody that enjoys a good read this is also for you.

Im a Kilmarnock fan, but i still enjoyed his tales of Celtic and his exploits whilst supporting the club he loves but never played for at senior level.

Go, ENJOY

5.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY OTHER COMPILATION BUY THIS, 2 Dec 2006
This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
As the title of the review says, if you dont have many stranglers albums in your collection buy this now, i have been a fan for 25 years so i know,and have many versions of all the songs on this album.

However if you are thinking of buying a gift for christmas , the recipient will love this album , and why not buy the stranglers latest album SUITE XVI, a true return to form to please any fan that has an interest in probably one of the best bands to come out of the uk.

BUY NOW

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST BUY FOR A STRANGLERS FAN, 17 Aug 2006
This review is from: The Spectre Of Love (Audio CD)
A true return to form, on first hearing i wasnt too sure.But Baz Warne has put his own character on the vocals, and as usual you can rely on JJ, DAVE and JET to knock out another great tune,,hope the rest of the album is as good.
