If you wanted an inspiring read about the rise and fall of a football club, Northampton Town, springs to mind. or the skills and talents of a top player put this book down now.
On the other hand if you are of the generation that grew up with the comics Tiger, Lion, Roy of the Rovers and Shoot.
This is for you. Read a few pages, shut your eyes and imagin this story in the form of pictures. Dogs running away at the word paint,a White horse in a prison cell, fireworks and the same horse. I'm not sure if you would be allowed to draw a picture true to the book though.
In the past you could get war and football stories in this form for a shilling, 5p. This would fit this book a treat.
The only downside for me was some of the language was just for my taste a fraction OTT that it detracted from the story. Surly there are good North country insults that could have replaced the F and W words.
The end or rather the post script to the story is clever and ties every thing together and they all lived happily ever after?
After reading Stairlift to Heaven 2, and thoroughly enjoying it i thought i would give it a go.
Well i wasn't disapointed. A great story with many laugh out loud moments as well as more subtle jokes that i got about two pages later. (Stadium of Lights reference springs to mind)
As someone else has mentioned, this would be great made as a TV comedy. I can almost picture it now. ITV/BBC i hope you are listening.
A much better book and far better value than all the England footballers' autobiographies put together. Two of the main characters, Big Donny Donnelly and Superintendant Screwer will surely go down as two of the most laugh-provoking fictional characters in history. A really funny barrelful of laughs book with no padding whatsoever.

I bought this book because I thought it was going to be laugh. Which it was. But I thought it had too many unnecessary bits which took away the footballing enjoyment. Read morePublished on 9 Feb. 2014 by Jonathan Watson

It is one of the worst books I have ever read by Terry Ravenscroft as a keen football fan I was really looking forward to it the biggest disappointment I have hadPublished on 21 May 2013 by D J Williams
As with most of TRs books, this is a slightly outlandish plot with larger than life characters and a fast paced plot. Read morePublished on 15 Mar. 2013 by Jamesy
Made me chuckle, well worth the read. This is just good clean, well cleanish, harmless fun. Will probably look to read a few more of this guy's books.Published on 9 Mar. 2013 by Mr John Browning
