The fact that sports shops took council clothing vouchers didn’t help matters. Some parents were a bit more savvy than others and bought cheaper tracksuits so they […]

THE TAT CONTROLLER

I’m currently working on the follow-up to A Toast to Charlie Hanrahan and when I’m a bit stuck I go for a wander on the internet. Last night, I happened to come across a Wikipedia entry for Neo-Gers in Season 2018-19. Of course, it’s full of stuff about Gerrard’s signings and it also has a […]

MALICE IN WONDERLAND

As Dorothy said to Toto, “Wur no’ in fuckin’ Kansas any mare, wee man!” I mean, what the hell’s going on? We’ve got a convicted criminal questioning everybody’s integrity and the football authorities giving in to his twisted demands. Meanwhile, the likes of Keith Jackson and Graham Spiers are cheerleading from the side-lines. Okay, the […]

HEROES

That’s the paperback version of Another Agnivore in a Different Kitchen available now. It’s on a different page to the Kindle version; it usually takes Amazon a couple of days to realise that it’s the same book and put both versions on the same page. Paperback £5.99 (Steady there, Monti!) available here. Kindle £1.99 available […]
