"The Little Book of Boro" is a neat collection of words of wit and wisdom by and about Middlesbrough FC's players, managers and officials, past and present. From Brian Clough and Sir Bobby Robson waxing lyrical about pre-war Boro legend Wilf Mannion to musings on the financial difficulties of the 1980s through to the club's spectacular revival under Chairman Steve Gibson, this highly entertaining book contains over 130 Teeside football quotes. Each quotation will be dated and attributed to its source and, where appropriate, entries will be accompanied by explanatory asides and/or supporting statistics. The sayings will appear in no particular order, but where connections and themes emerge these will be taken into account.
