But what is clear, from talking to Margaret Potts, is that if there was a quiet agreement between Lord and Adamson that one day the job would be his, Harry Potts knew absolutely nothing about it until Lord informed him in 1970 of the ...

Jimmy Adamson was a football enigma, revered by some, disliked by others - a supremely elegant player of the '50s and early '60s, a title winner and a respected coach, but a manager whose spirit was ultimately shattered. In 1962, Adamson had the world at his feet: FA Cup finalist, Footballer of the Year and invited to become England manager, having been assistant at the World Cup in Chile. But Adamson said 'no'. In 1970 he predicted that Burnley would become the 'Team of the Seventies', but despotic chairman Bob Lord's selling policy saw the vision fade and die. Controversially sacked in 1976, Adamson moved to Sunderland and then endured two torrid years at Leeds United before turning his back on the game. This is a poignant story of broken dreams, failed ambitions and personal tragedy, ending in estrangement from the club he loved. A story of what might have been.

Mud Sweat and Shears

He was a huge favourite with ex-manager Harry Potts and the Burnley crowd. But Potts had been shunted 'upstairs' to a position that was hazy and almost inconsequential in order to clear the way for Adamson.

Mud, Sweat and Shears is the story of Roy Oldfield - groundsman at Burnley FC through the 1970s and 1980s. It tells of how he went from miner to parks and recreation man and eventually became one of football's most-respected turf men. On the pitch he saw more bad times than good, but his offer to 'Av a brew' was gladly accepted by a procession of football greats: from Brian Clough to Bill Shankly, and Denis Law to Kevin Keegan. He faced daily battles with the weather and directors, but single-handedly produced a pitch which received continued praise from players, managers and referees well before the modern immaculate pitches. Roy used his wits, a mower, wheelbarrow, a couple of forks and sand; in an age when most pitches turned to mudbaths at a drop of rain and games were played on snow. This is a unique football book: through a groundsman's eyes, and it tells the story of what typically went on behind the scenes at one club before football became the multi-million-pound industry it is today.

From 1895 until 1969, the city of Portsmouth, Virginia, fielded a professional minor league team. Fans flocked to see the Truckers, Cubs, Merrimacs, and Tides as they battled opponents on the dirt and grass of local diamonds. Many locals are surprised to discover that such renowned ballplayers as Pie Traynor, Hack Wilson, Eddie Stanky, and Harry "The Cat" Breechen got their start in Portsmouth. In 1933, Negro League legend Buck Leonard first played for the Portsmouth Revels and later returned to briefly star with the 1953 Merrimacs, his only opportunity to play integrated ball during his storied career. A number of former big-name players guided the team from the bench including Tony Lazzeri, Jimmie Foxx, and Pepper Martin to name a few. The images in this pictorial volume showcase only a fragment of the vast chronology of baseball as it was played in Portsmouth over the years. Yet their visual appeal and historical representation of the game allow the reader to experience and recall what it was once like to have the National Pastime as an integral part of the city.

As Everton fans, we all sing the anthems, ?It's a grand old team to play for, ? and, ?If you know your history, ? but how well do you really know the players of the past? The first volume featured interviews with fifty former Everton players who have lived the boyhood dream; gracing the famous Goodison turf in the royal blue jersey. This edition contains interviews with fifty more former players, some who are very well known, and others less so. Some could count their total games on one hand. But, one thing they all have in common, is their pride in wearing the royal blue jersey and playing at Goodison Park.

Whenever a famous footballer dies, there is an inevitable degree of public grief. But an obituary should never be a leaden announcement of a death. Rather it should be a celebration of a life which, in some way, has touched countless other people down the years, inspiring heartfelt emotion and endless debate. Certainly that is true of the individuals featured here, from those who provoked something not far short of national mourning, such household names as Sir Stanley Matthews, George Best, Alan Ball, Brian Clough, Sir Bobby Robson and Malcolm Allison, through to those who died far too young, the likes of David Rocastle, Justin Fashanu, Gary Ablett and Gary Speed. Updated edition of Ivan Ponting's critically acclaimed 2008 book Features more than 230 of British football's fascinating and diverse characters, and looks back in detail at their careers and achievements Spans a vast era of British football, through the lives of those personalities who have died in the last 20 years Includes colour picture section featuring iconic images of a number of those featured Written by respected Independent obituarist, football writer and author Ivan Ponting Foreword by James Lawton
