A book in which Wilf Mannion rubs shoulders with The Sunderland Skinhead: recollections of Len Shakleton blight the lives of village shoppers: and the appointment of Kevin Keegan as manager of Newcastle is celebrated by a man in a leather stetson, crooning 'For The Good Times' to the accompaniment of a midi organ, THE FAR CORNER is a tale of heroism and human frailty, passion and the perils of eating an egg mayonnaise stottie without staining your trousers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Savagely funny and frequently moving ... Some of the humour is as full-blooded as a tackle by Bryan Robson ... At times the author wanders off at a tangent, like Chris Waddle on a bad day, then that is the capricious nature of football * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
Forget Nick Horby's FEVER PITCH, this is the football book of the new age, a mix of heroism, humour and Norman Hunter, but mainly humour * SUNDAY TIMES SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR *
Britain's best ever football book * NORTHERN ECHO *
Acidly funny, there is lots of relevant social comment. One of the best of the new genre * IRISH TIMES *
