Sheffield Wednesday won the FA Cup in 1935, so is this Frogley FC ? who cares?
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?

I got recommended the author from a friend of mine whose comic/literary views I've usually shared . Having read the book I can thoroughly recommend it to others as both tremendously funny and well written book that deserves critical success.Looking forward to reading one of the authors other published works

A light, comical, shortish read set in a fantasy world of a minor league football team with all the fantacy, aspirations, lunacy, apathy and delusions that invariabley arise. Well told, with good characters and enough humour throughout the book. You could relate this tale to a similar Rugby League or Union club and know, recognise and love the characters. At less than a quid for the Kindle version, you simply can't go wrong.

I read this from cover to cover with barely a break for a cup of tea. For anyone who knows or loves football or anyone who wants to know the real goings on around a small town club this book is a must. The author takes real life characters, the kind we all know and love or loathe from our local teams and he heightens their personalities just enough to make them still credible while making them hilarious. From the off the reader can see the world Stanley inhabits and feel for him. The author treats each of his characters with sensitivity even the megalomaniac policeman Screwer. The story trips along at a great pace and the reader finds himself turning pages quickly. In these days of chicken farmers buying premiership teams it is not a stretch to imagine meat pie magnate Price taking over a small town team and doing exactly the same things. In essence this book caricatures perfectly the goings on in a small town and at a small town club - maybe even the goings on at a premiership club. I would highly recommend this to those interested in footie or those who want a good laugh.

This has been sitting on my Kindle since i got it as a free download quite a while ago. I have been putting off reading it because i hate football. It holds no interest for me whatsoever.
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.

I'd already read Terry Ravenscroft's Dear Air 2000 which I found to be hilarious so I was looking forward to reading this. I was not disappointed.

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.

Forget the World Cup, the European Championship, the Premier League, this is everyday football for thousands of fans around the country, following your local team through thick and thin, win or lose. The chairman is local boy makes good, the main supporter has Frogley Town running through his spine, the manager is useless, and the Police Commander looks for trouble that isn't there. A masterpiece in good old down to earth humour. We can all relate to the characters in this novel. BUY IT.

I have read a few books by Terry Ravenscroft, and when I saw this at 99p thought why not. The book does seem to have some good points, problem is though that it is quite 'clunky' to read, not flowing well, I really want to like this and it does seem to have the making of a good comic novel in it, but my main thought reading thorough it was that it seemed as if it was rushed to publication and could have used a good editor/proof reader to tighten up the narrative and content (much like this review actually).
