    Thanks for that. I really appreciate comments about my work and that book is pretty special to me. It's the book I enjoyed writing the most. It's still available via Amazon as a hardback book or kindle too. Kindle:

    Tony Cascarino. Best one I’ve read.

    Billy Meredith's biography Football Wizard is a great read. He had a very eventful life in football and set up what became the PFA.

    Not an autobio but I mostly enjoyed The Mixer: The Story of Premier League Tactics, from Route One to False Nines by Michael Cox.
    The chapter about Liverpool's failure to win the league against Pelligrini's team lets it down as it gives City very little credit for the great football they played but, if you can see beyond that, it is an interesting read.

    Don't read Tony Adams, never read a bigger load of whingeing utter shit in my life.... Paul Lake and Buzzers were great reads though and both highly recommended ....
