2.0 out of 5 stars A poor reissue, 19 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Blackpool: The Complete Record (Hardcover)
I bought the original 1992 issue and have treasured it ever since, despite its occasional mistake, and was eager to see the updated version. It was, I have to say, a major disappointment. The information has mostly been lifted from the respective subject articles on Wikipedia, which have mostly been written by me (down to a T with regards to the club records page). On top of that, some of the mistakes still exist (the confusion of Walter Cookson with 'Gyp' Cookson, for example). I'm in the process of returning my copy for a refund.

The only plus point is the introduction of new photographs, but it doesn't redress the balance.

I totally agree - a really poor effort
I wrote to DB asking why Mr. Calley continue to make the same mistakes of 20 years ago and why Blackpool CR was the only recent CR not endorsed by respective Club - They (DB) kindly replied but were unable to give me an acceptable answer
