The Ghost of White Hart Lane: In Search of My Father the Football Legend
The Ghost of White Hart Lane: In Search of My Father the Football Legend
Price: 5.98

4.0 out of 5 stars John White, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My father won money on the 'double-winning' side of 1960-1961 and I knew all of their names before I knew all of the United players back in the sixties (I'm a United fan). This biography of one of the best midfielders ever is an obvious 'labour of love' but it is also a beautifully written book. Cherish the legend because John White truly was one !

I knew Pat's brother and mother when I worked with them in the early eighties and I knew a girl who went out with Pat at the same time. He often used to go for a beer with his brother and I came along quite often. He was good company and yet, you knew, he was always looking around on the off-chance. I enjoyed his book because he tells it as it was and, if you want to read the story of somebody who made the best of what he had, read this. Incidentally, his brother, Rudi, was a better player !

Everything he did in the fifties is here and more. His best recording period in my opinion and I love this collection.

This review is from: Looking For Eric [DVD] (DVD)
I defy anyone to watch this film and not enjoy it. It'll never win any awards but, for fun and a little drama, it's a pleasure to watch.

Great fun for anyone who wants to read about an 'ordinary' footballer who had an 'ordinary' career. In my opinion, anyone who makes a living from playing football is extraordinary !

I devour everything about Bestie having been introduced to him by my cousin back in the sixties and it was interesting to read about his time (or not) in Edinburgh.

Fantastic work as always. You can never get enough knowledge about football (says the Irish anorak) and I have almost every edition of this work.

Paul Watson's book is a labour of love and an inspiration. It's also an amazing tale of what somebody can achieve when they really want to do something in the game. I was envious to say the least and would recommend this book to everybody.

Does Your Rabbi Know You're Here?: The Story of English Football's Forgotten Tribe
Price: 3.96

5.0 out of 5 stars Jewish Footballers., 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was fascinated by this book as it introduced me to footballers that I wasn't aware of from the 1920's onwards. Really impressed by Anthony Clavane's detailed research and the way in which he presented the work. recommende to anyone with an interest in football's lesser-know heroes !

3.0 out of 5 stars John Lyall, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's o.k. That's all I can say. I grew up watching a lot of Lyall's West Ham United teams in the seventies and it was good to read a bit about the man behind them.
