It can be a bit scary at the Royal Courts, nothing new there John,  but are you going to spill the beans on what really happened...could be a best seller around here  :police:

Wonder if it will be a "warts and all" book or will he stay clear of certain details?  Either way, I think it will make for an interesting read (esp the bit where Mel Sterland got sacked and a certain bit of paper for the FA was found later behind a filing cabinet).

I guess he needs to be careful, legally speaking, with a lot of the stories, but it would be good to get JB's side of the lost application saga given the amount of p155taking we've done over the years...!

I don't think he will say much that we didn't already know.
But the book will be an interesting read.
Was surprised though about the Swansea scout bit.

I was talking with him at the Spalding Town match today and he says it's been delayed as Chris Cook is printing it and, of course, his works are fire damaged.

Launch and signing will be in the pilgrim lounge so I’m led to believe. The other one will be in a phone box somewhere near Dover.
