The book is about the last 20 years so not really covering players from before 2002.

I thought the centenary book was to cover the 100 years, wouldn't that be a better seller? Especially for the wider football audience? could also add things in that maybe didn't make it in to the previous book?

I understand Alan Slark is Harold's nephew, not cousin.

In which case you will need to correct my source, Club Historian Les.

Not sure where you got that idea from as I have only ever said that it would be a second volume following on from the original book. There is a very limited market for such a book and many potential purchasers would be a little short changed if they were asked to pay for a book they had largely already bought. There really isn’t a lot more to add about the pre 2002 period. And more importantly, I no longer have the original on my computer and I am not typing that out again!
