We recently recorded a Podcast with the highly respected Newcastle-based, football journalist, Michael Walker to coincide with his latest book – GREEN SHOOTS – IRISH FOOTBALL HISTORIES.
We’ve had great feedback about the Podcast – which we really enjoyed recording – and we can say Michael’s new book is a great read – really well-written and full of fascinating stories I’m sure you’ll enjoy.
Michael has very kindly offered up a copy of his book as a prize to a true faith reader and all you need to do win the prize is to give us a fact about the most significant Irish player we’ve ever had on Newcastle United’s books – the great Bill McCracken, in the comments box below and the one we think is the most interesting will win the prize.
We’ll also be offering variations to compete for the book via our social media – twitter and facebook, so get onto them for more details as well.
Of course if you just want to buy the book, you can get a copy by buying one – its available via Amazon – just click here for a hard copy of kindle version of the book. You might also want to support your local bookshop and have a wander into where-ever it you are .
Our comrades at the peerless nufc.com have some signed copies of Michael’s book and you can get at them by just dropping Mr Biffa a line on email@example.com
You really don’t have to have any Irish heritage or be Irish to enjoy the book – its just a good old historical version of football which has huge relevance to the football we’ve gone along to support and participate over many years.
