Celery!: Representing Chelsea in the 1980s

By Kelvin John Barker

2006. First printing. Paperback. Very Good +. 12 Stamford Bridge Heroes Recall a Turbulent Decade in SW6. Very scarce first edition. Celery! Representing Chelsea in the 1980s, Kelvin Barker s True Blue classic - Celery! Representing Chelsea in the 1980s captures in amazing detail the trials and tribulations, the laughter and the tears, and the joy and pain of both watching and playing for Chelsea Football Club during a truly remarkable decade in the club s history. From Kelvin s own amusing tales of hugging skipper Colin Pates on the hallowed Stamford Bridge turf and serenading Bob Geldof in the King s Road, through to the incredible behind-the-scenes stories as told by the players themselves - the mysterious case of Mickey Thomas disappearing gold chain, how a kick in the head made Joey Jones a fans favourite, the role physio Norman Medhurst s hair played in David Speedie s departure from the club, and many more - this book lays bare the facts of representing Chelsea in the 1980s, as recalled by those who were there. A little bit of nostalgia mixed in with some extraordinarily accurate history . Celery! provides an authoritative education on an important time for the club. PAT NEVIN, Chelsea wing wizard. Very good book, slight creasing to spine , otherwise fine. A1

Rodney Marsh : I Was a LOOSE CANNON

By Rodney Marsh with Brian Woolnough.

2010. First edition. Very Good +/ fine. Inscribed and signed on fep by Rodney Marsh. " To anna & Steve. Thtime next year RODDERS we'll all be .......... Best Wishes Rodney Marsh" Fine book but for the inscription. Fine wrapper. Illustrated. Firm binding. B&W and colour photographs throughout. Mention the name RODNEY MARSH and what do you think of? Controversy, a showman, maverick and unpredictable character. Yes, all of those and much more. Here, his characteristics come together in one of the most honest football books written to date. Marsh does more than expose 'warts and all'; he goes where no other 'Loose Cannon' has been before. He explains in detail which he has emerged as such a personality you either love or loath. From a violent 'no love' upbringing as a child, through his career at Fulham (twice), Queen's Park Rangers, Manchester City and then huge success on and off the pitch in America, Marsh doesn't hold back, just as he never has as a TV and Radio pundit. Marsh falls out with people because he says what he thinks. He infuriated many managers and coaches as a player and has upset just as many with his forthright comments on the game and its future. But how he loves football, and that feeling runs through the book alongside the many stories and controversial moments. As a player, Marsh had more skill than most but did he waste it? As a person he is hard to break down. Why? As a loveable rogue, he has few equals and that is what this book is about. For the first time Marsh goes public on an extraordinary career. Loose Cannon is the perfect title for the book because that is what he is. A1
