A friend of mine has just had his first book published My Only Boro: A Walk Through Red & White
Do you LOVE football, history, war and politics? Then this is the book for you.
Do you HATE football, history, war and politics? Then this is the book for you.
After more than a century of immaculate footballing underachievement Middlesbrough Football Club enjoyed its most successful period beginning with victory in the 2004 League Cup Final and ending on a disastrous night in Eindhoven.
How did we get there? Not just the extraordinary run in that tournament, and not just in sport, but historically, as a town, and as a community.
My Only Boro is not just about Middlesbrough Football Club, it’s not just a history book about the town and it’s not just a social commentary on a town once described as the worst place to live in Britain – it’s all this and more.
I bought my copy last week from a signing Will was doing in the local Waterstones in which he shifted 114 copies in 2 hours, I believe the first print run of around 500 has almost sold out but new ones are getting printed very soon.
