Kicking off





I can't quite believe it's 78 days to publication of the book but that's what it says on the online bookstores I keep visiting daily as I try to gauge interest in it. Back Page Press have informed me that there has been quite a lot of positive feedback via emails and other expressions of interest on Facebook and Twitter. One of the great concerns Gillie had about this book was that he felt no-one would be interested in reading it. How wrong he was.

It seems like a long time since the first chapter was made available for download as a freebie to mark six months before publication. To date, there have been well over 500 downloads from the BPP website and the figure is rising daily. If you've still not got around to reading it then you can find it here: http://www.backpagepress.co.uk/downloads.htm

In the coming weeks, I'll be writing a series of articles on Gillie, my experiences with the book, his team-mates and other Spurs and Dundee related topics. But, until then, take care and please let me know if you have any suggestions for the site.

Bye for now.

  1. This is the blog - and the book - I have been waiting for years for. Alan is definitely my number one Spurs hero, a footballing legend. I remember admiring his skills in the pre-match kick about. He was the best headed passer of the ball I have ever seen. Good luck with the book. George Dearsley

  2. Thanks for your kind sentiments George. I hope it lives up to expectations. I will posting regularly to give people a flavour of what to expect. Thanks again.
