Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mad Man: From the Gutter to the Stars, the Ad Man who saved Brighton (Hardcover)
As a long suffering Brighton & HA season ticket holder at The Goldstone, Gillingham, Withdean and The Amex I was curious to read this book. As part of those turbulent days with Archerlotti, I was intrigued to read about what was really happening behind the scenes and how much longer they had kept their claws in the club than I had realised. DK writes well and chooses his words carefully, but you cannot help feeling sad towards the end of the book because we have a fine club and stadium but I am not sure that DK gets the credit he should. Have we actually 'done right by him?'. If you are serious about football and or your club then this is a compelling read! I bought it at the same time as Ferguson's and Redknapp's autobiographies and the latter two do not compare.

I agree, BHAFC would not in my mind be in existance as is if it was not for DK's love of the albion and everything proper. My only blemish to the journey is not having Dick as chair and Tony as deputy for the opening game proper at the community stadium. It is his legacy, and unfortunately in my view, money won the chair just a little to soon. Ironic really.
