New Book from Dave Thomas

New Book from Dave Thomas

THE BOOK OF 2006/07

Russians Don`t Land Here… The blurb!

If you enjoyed It`s Burnley Not Barcelona by Dave Thomas you will enjoy the new book of season 2006/07 Russians Don`t Land Here.

As the name suggests this is the story of the season, good and bad, and mixed in are player profiles, interviews with the chairman Barry Kilby, the chief exec Dave Edmundson, head of youth development Vince Overson, director Ray Griffiths and various other features.

The book covers every game, the ups and downs, the ins and outs and insights into all the struggles that the club has encountered over the season. If there are things to find funny, Dave finds them, but always with decorum and respect for his elders.

Dave travelled the length and breadth of the land from Leeds to Burnley for home games, from Barnsley to London, from Hull to Southampton, the lowest moment being the taste of the Potato, Cheese and Onion pie at QPR.

From a great start and the heady heights of the top six, the season fell away, but don`t forget, this is Burnley not Barcelona and Dave notes things down with his usual style and humour. January 2007 was a rare month; we bought players instead of selling when a Flood of money came into the club.

A visit to the Tower of London inspired Dave to think of a few ways the matchday experience at Turf Moor could be improved. Along the way Dave also looks at the way in which a bigger club with greater potential, Coventry City, operates and compares with Burnley.

This will be a paperback book available from the club shop and will nicely complement the 600 page complete club history the club is producing. The aim is to keep it at a price of no more than £10 if at all possible. Only 1000 copies will be produced, and of these, 125 will be specially labelled, numbered and signed by Martin Dobson and Barry Kilby, to tie in with the 125 celebrations, at a price of £22 including postage.

These special editions must be ordered from Dave Thomas (David V Thomas Book Account). 12 Moorland View, Rodley, Leeds, Yorkshire, LS13 1PU 0113 2570582.
