Grandson Charlie attending a Championship game at Hillsborough prompts Richard Crooks to transport himself back to the 1970s and recall what football was really like for supporters in the 1970s. Crooks provides an engaging and comprehensive narrative on all things football in that decade, and brings out the social context of the time. Reflecting on what it was like getting to a game, the grounds, the crowds, the clubs, the managers, players, referees, reporting the game, growing commercialism, the World Cups, and through to the spectre of the rise of hooliganism and racism. Using written and broadcast material of the time, as well as Crooks's own experiences, Grandad, What Was Football Like in the 1970s? provides a fascinating insight and description of a decade when things really started to change in football - and also sheds light on the oft-asked question, 'Was football better then or in the modern era?'

An endearing auto-biographical account of a journey through childhood, experienced through what was arguably the most entertaining decade ever in which to have been a kid in Britain. Mapping his young life out through his love of the popular culture of the day, from the music that he grew up with and absorbed, to the popular TV shows which innocently entertained a generation of kids, the bashful but defiant protagonist reflects upon a tumultuous decade and of an age of innocence long since lost. Through his troubled relationship with a largely uninspiring education system and the schooling customs of his generation (and his ultimate contempt for them) it becomes clear that it is the popular culture of his childhood era which proves to be, among many other things, his education and his window into the world.

Pep times his move with instinctive perfection. Suddenly, he's back on the ball, and the defenders realize (too late, because they're committed now) that he never really left: it was all an illusion. And then he's over the ball, collecting it with his right instep, to banana it over the heads of both defenders, and way beyond the reach of the late-diving keeper... Football Fever 3 contains ten brand new soccer stories from a team of top authors including Rob Childs, Narinder Dhami and Tony Bradman. As well as Pep, join the rest of the squad - midfielder Andy who has a chance to impress the soccer scouts, if only his father will allow him to play; Dekko, captain of the Hilljoy team, the roughest, toughest team to run out on to a football pitch, striker Jonno, who gets a brilliant idea of how to lift his team from bottom of the league, and many others.

Brendan Cummins has made more senior hurling championship appearances than any other player in the history of the game. In an era that produced such brilliant goalkeeping talents as Davy Fitzgerald, Donal Óg Cusack and Damien Fitzhenry, many would argue that Cummins has earned the right to be considered the greatest of them all. Following his League debut for Tipperary in November 1993, Cummins went on to play at the top of the intercounty game for 19 consecutive seasons. He won two senior All Ireland medals, five Munster championships, four League titles and five All Star awards. From fearless shot-stopping to pinpoint accuracy on his puck-outs, Cummins was unrivalled in the consistency of his performances, a consistency underpinned by a sometimes punishing physical commitment, mental discipline and great attention to detail. He was the rock upon which Tipperary built their team under many managers and changes of personnel. Brendan Cummins' story is the story of Tipperary hurling over the last two decades. The ups and downs. The dramas. The characters. From his senior championship debut in 1995 under Fr. Tom Fogarty to his final games under Eamon O’Shea, Cummins has seen it all. Standing My Ground is a remarkable account of an extraordinary career.

In 2013 he decided to tell his life story, hoping that someone may someday want to read it. It is an insightful look back to the world of yesterday, and deals with subjects ranging from school discipline, family feuds and office politics, to the joys of children and grandchildren, the loss of loved ones, and the perils of caravanning in Europe. The story is told in the frank and forthright manner you would expect from a true Yorkshireman, full of honesty, self deprecation and dark humour. It also shows that an ordinary man can have an extraordinary tale to tell.
