5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for any football fan, 6 Sep 2012
By 
JAH (Leigh Lancashire) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ah'm Tellin' Thee - A Biography of Tommy Banks, Bolton Wanderers and England (Paperback)
"Ah'm tellin thee" is more than a biography of a very talented, very proud, dignified and extremely honourable man. It is a well documented piece of social history. Transporting the reader to a time when playing professional football was no more than a safer alternative to the industrial dangers of a life down the mines or on the factory floor. Every page brings Tommy Banks to life culminating in him feeling like a best friend.
So as Tommy Banks would say "Ah'm gooin tell awl n sundry bah't it, cause its reet gud n gradley book, if tha con read"

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales of a "real" footballer, 2 Sep 2012

This review is from: Ah'm Tellin' Thee - A Biography of Tommy Banks, Bolton Wanderers and England (Paperback)
This book relates to a time when footballers were not prima donnas as is sometimes the case today. A gritty tale of battles fought on and off the field-battles for existence in hard times and future battles against football's slave-like contracts. The story is littered with short quotes in Lancashire dialect as spoken by the subject and offering translations in English underneath. A thoroughly entertaining read and one which should make the modern footballer appreciative of the efforts made on their behalf by their predecessors in the game. Couldn't put it down! You will enjoy if you love the game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for young and old, 18 Oct 2012

This review is from: Ah'm Tellin' Thee - A Biography of Tommy Banks, Bolton Wanderers and England (Paperback)
I bought this for my Grandad as a gift. Not only did he enjoy reading the book, reminiscing on the olden days, but also saw a lot of similarities between his life and Tommy's life.

I have also read the book; and i think that the younger generation can learn a lot about football, the recent history of the country, and the life of a talented footballer - Tommy Banks!

5 stars

This review is from: Ah'm Tellin' Thee - A Biography of Tommy Banks, Bolton Wanderers and England (Paperback)
I am not really a football fan but bought one copy for my grandson who is a BWFC supporter, and decided to have an extra. Only for myself. To my surprise I really enjoyed reading it especially as I live quite close to the areas outlined in the book.

This review is from: Ah'm Tellin' Thee - A Biography of Tommy Banks, Bolton Wanderers and England (Paperback)
A good good read particularly for any Bolton Wanderers fan. Writing was somewhat haphazard which detracted a little from the overall enjoyment of what was otherwise an excellent publication

Remember watching Bolton from the terraces, this book brought back fond memories of the game.the photographs are excellent.well worth reading as an insight to how the game was played by REAL people that were friends of the spectators.
