1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Rubbish, 4 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Bend It Like Bullard (Hardcover)
Possibly the worst footballers autobiography I have ever read. Total garbage, and Bullard isn't,t even funny. Bought it new for 3 quid and I was robbed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read (70;s Reissue), 20 Jan. 2014
I bought this book without realising it had originally been published in the 70's, as were Farringtons' other two books in the Trilogy, Tudor Agent and The Traitors of Bosworth. It is obvious that this book has been re issued because of the interest over the last few years in books by Sansome, Clements, and Gortner etc all relating to Tudor mystery and intrigue. And why not, because this is right up there with these other authors. Other reviewers have outlined the plot so there is little need for me to do so. Like a lot of other readers, after enjoyng the first part of a trilogy, i usually can't wait for the next one to become available but how long this one will be before it hits the shelves is anyones guess. Long out of print, the other two books in the series, are available on Kindle for about 5 or 6 quid, or a copy from the 70,s can cost about 20 quid as they seem to be scarce. Looks like i will have to wait awhile. Worth waiting for though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok if you don't want to eat for Ten Hours, 27 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fixes dentures very firmly, until you eat or drink then they start to come loose, and yes, I did follow the instructions. Just as messy as other fixatives but twice the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor., 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didnt expect anything great for the price, and i certainly wasn't disapointed. I use it as a handkerchief. Don't waste your money, better quality out there for the same or less money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking, Particularly for one player., 9 Oct. 2012
Now, being a supporter of the Club of which Brian Laws started his managerial career, i have to say that along with many other fans of that Club, i don't suppose that Laws will go down in history as their greatest or most popular manager, but, putting that fact aside, this is a great read. Most so called "footballers autobiographies" to me can be boring in the extreme, relying mainly on facts and figures, mainly because although they have had successful careers and played at the highest level, they have little to say about the game itself. This is not the case with Laws. From his early days growing up in the North East , to the present time, the book is packed with anecdotes from his career, and the chapters regarding playing under the great "Cloughie" at Nottingham Forest are a joy to read. His first sortee' as a manager with Grimsby Town provides a great insight of his time at the club, and if he didn't leave a lasting mark on the club, he certainly did with one of it's players!. A great section about his more succesful bout as manager of Scunthorpe Utd, until his departure for Sheffield Wednesday, which gives a great insight into the way Chairmen think they know more about football than the manager. (But we all know that don't we?). His arrival and departure from the gaffers' job at Burnley brings the book up to present day and to what he is doing now.
Unusually for an autobiography, self depreciating at times, but honest. From a man that has played at the highest level, and managed at the lowest.
Credit has to be given to co-writer sportswriter Alan Biggs for his assistance with the "telling of the tale"
Highly recommended reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for the Amazon Kindle Fire, 15 Feb. 2012
I don't own a Kindle Fire. I bought an NATPC M009S Capacitive 7 inch tablet from Amazon and had a bit of difficulty finding the right size cover/wallet for it. All were either too big or too small
and it's a bit of trial and error with the many different makes and designs on the market. However, after seeing this wallet case which is designed for the Kindle Fire, I Googled for the dimensions of the Kindle Fire and found that it measured the same as my tablet.
It arrived today and, whoopee! it fits perfectly. The wallet itself is well made and looks good and holds my tablet securely, Also, the top and side controls/sockets on my tablet are accessible whilst in the wallet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb package, 5 Oct. 2011
Mention the name James Burton to Rock and Roll/ Country fans and the majority would probably say ,"Oh yes, wasn't he the guy who played guitar on Ricky Nelsons' records" or "He was the guitarist in Presley's house band" The answers would be correct, but Burton was and still is, much more than that. Never a major star in his own right, this compilation of Burtons earlier session work shows the regard for his talent held by major artists of that time through having him on their recordings.
Artists such as, Dale Hawkins, Rick Nelson, Lee Greenwood, Bob Luman, The Everly Bros, are all featured on this compilation, along with rare cuts from Burton himself, or in association with other musicians such as Ralph Mooney, pedal steel player in Merle Haggards band The Strangers, and the Shindogs, the resident band on the US TV rock show Shindig. Not on the album is probably Burtons most well known guitar solo, the lead break in Nelsons' Hello Mary Lou, and some will no doubt query this omission, but Nelson fans will have this track anyway, and this album is after all a dedication to Burtons diverse work over the years.
As with all Ace releases, the accompanying booklet is superb. The liner notes are informative and objective, and great credit must go to the compilers and writers of this package, as it also must to Ace Records for adding an artist of Burtons stature to their catalogue. Volume two will be eagerly awaited by owners of this package, and like the man himself will be a hard act to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Jacket, 27 Mar. 2011
I have had a Berghaus Down jacket for a couple of years and unfortunately i got a tear in it. Too expensive to repair i decided to get something that was as good but preferably without the bulk of down. I took a chance on this jacket and i couldn't have been more delighted. Warmer than a down jacket, and a fraction of the weight and bulk. When it arrived i could not believe that such a lightweight jacket could possibly keep me warm, but it does. The Omni-heat lining reflects your bodies own heat and retains it. Even on a really cold day you hardly need much on under it. Having been out in heavy rain in it, i can honestly say it doesn't let the water in, although the manufacturers only say it's water resistant. It doesn't get heavy in rain like a down jacket does either. Two zipped side pockets that keep your hands warm and one zipped inner pocket. The hood does not detach, but this is no problem as it's not bulky. Looks great too. I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for really warm lightweight jacket, epecially as an alternative to down.
