Norman Giller has been in touch with his
latest book. Over to you Norman:-
It is called Footballing
Fifties, and is an in-depth look at what I
call 'the decade when the Beautiful Game was in black and
white. I spotlight just about everything that happened in
a two-faced era when players were treated like soccer
slaves, yet provided some of the most exciting and
adventurous football ever witnessed.
I give you Matthews
and Finney, Lofthouse and Milburn,
Shackleton and Mannion, Billy Wright and
the great John Charles (he would be
worth more today than the entire Leeds team put
The final chapter
is a poll on the decade I am inviting people to vote on
their favourites players of the decade and there is a
full breakdown of all the leading contenders at www.footballingfifties.co.uk
Anybody taking part
in the poll will be offered the book (due for publication
in the Autumn) at a discount price.

Spammers have used the Bob 70-71 email address to promote
the type of site I do not visit, let alone publish. I can
do nothing about this. I hope regular visitors will trust
that the only sites I am involved with are accessible
from www.bobdunning.net and are without
exception family friendly. Also, I truly do not want to
sell you insurance...
