I finally got around to buying Paul's book at the Lincoln City F.A. Cup game & now, 10 days later I've finished it! To paraphrase Paul's own words, it is of superior quality than I had realised.
Basically, a diary account of the 2013/2014 season, our esteemed word-smith writes with great passion about our club, having been granted in depth access to Richard Hill, his team, all the players and other back-room staff. He uses great skill in converting his interviews with Richard and the players into a concise and very readable narrative.
Answers to questions like, Dan Spence's nickname, Richard Hill's favourite nursery rhyme, Stuart Fleetwood's wages & Craig McAllister's inside leg measurement are absent, but you are likely to learn a lot about the club that you didn't know before. I found the book most interesting, entertaining, indeed "gripping", a "page turner" & "unputdownable". Oh, and there is a happy ending.
You may be wondering why it has that title? Well you'll just have to buy it and find out. It's available in the club shop so why not ask for it for Xmas? Or better still, treat yourself to a copy. You won't regret it.
