about

For those of us who came from the Seventies, it should be obligatory reading. But younger folk should take a look too, for it beautifully captures a bygone era... Brian Viner, The Independent

There is a rough edge to his diary that reinforces its immediacy and credibility...a funny and fascinating document... Michael Parkinson, The Daily Telegraph

The flavour of the club [Notts County] is brilliantly captured... when younger first team players still took the bus to training and an ability to sink pints was still the measure of a footballer's manhood... Richard Williams, The Guardian

A wonderfully earthy account of just how different life was for footballers of the time than for today's pampered poseurs... Martin Chilton, London Evening Standard

Funny, frightening and revealing… there are no flash cars...but there are some desperate women and equally desperate men... McVay captures it brilliantly…. Paul Dennis, Shoot Monthly

These boys aren't cool well-behaved ambassadors of the game… No this is Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious and the rest in shorts and a pair of shinnies. This is Banzai soccer; what we all know the beautiful game to really be deep down; passion, excess and overload; hungry lads let loose in a sweetshop where moments before they had their noses hard pressed against the window. And when you're buggered, you stop. Brilliant… Billy Ivory, playwright and creator of Common as Muck and screen writer for the award-winning Made in Dagenham
