Nothing against Brighty - heís a footballer not an author and I agree with all the good things people have said about him. Someone should have helped with the writing thatís all.
Ex-journalist Kevin Brennan co-wrote it.

I think as keen fans, we're hoping for exclusives - personal insights about key or significant moments. Things we wouldn't otherwise know.

There are some of these insights, however they come across as pretty dull memories/anecdotes really. As fans, we've already seen the big games, read the reports, seen interviews, even heard from former players at reunions, so there isn't much left to read to fill in any other gaps. I think in comparison, Ian Wright has had 3 books now, there's nothing left about him I care to read!

I quite like the Ďcarí story with Wright, Bright & Thomas.
I read that in the book a couple of months back and I was terrified. I hear Brighty telling it on here and I'm pissing myself laughing.

Can you imagine how devastated we'd have been if that maniac with the gun had started firing??

Hate to say it, but in terms of his upbringing, you are right. So much time given to Nana Parton whereas our 1991 wonder season is given just a very small amount of attention. Great that he focussed so much on the 1990 cup run but most people buyingt the book are either Palace or Wednesday fans.
I'd have had no problem reading more about Leicester and Sheffield Wednesday stories as well. I love pretty much any football story from the 70s/80s/90s.

Love the Ronaldinho story as well.

Wish there'd been a bit more at Sion - that chairman sounded a great guy!

I've just read his book and I think I have come to the opposite conclusion. Would we have really learnt anything new about 1991? Felt we did get to know Brighty really well. Did a review - here - if anyone wants to look at it/disagree with it... To view the link you have to Register or Login

He was on a channel.5 program.the other night about racism, he told a story about growing up in Stoke in the 70s, being of the same age it didnt shock me, but makes you feel very sad and ashamed.
