By the late 1930s, Czechoslovakia prepared for German invasion as Hitler’s dreams for the Third Reich appeared increasingly plausible. By October 1937, many Czechs, assuming the worst, turned their attention instead to the Grand Pardubice steeplechase, a highlight of the national sporting calendar. Even this most demanding of races had been dominated Germans and Austrians; the home crowd’s only hope was that 1937’s Teutonic contingent would fail to finish. (read review)

The backdrop to this thrilling, fast-moving tale reads like the introduction to a Gallic version of a Bond novel. It’s to author Jamie Reid’s credit that readers could believe Ian Fleming was at the typewriter as we’re introduced to the book’s Monsieur X, Patrice des Moutis. Reid successfully invokes Paris of the 1950s, isolated pockets of which became a glamorous, fashionable, Gauloise-smoking counterpoint to much of Europe, still on its knees following six years of war.

Rugby union’s leading exponents are blessed with mental and physical strength, as well as with oversized supplies of athleticism and bravery, in order that they may contend with the game’s physical demands, a point made in Jim Telfer’s foreword to My Name’5 Doddie. “A huge gangling laddie,” is how Telfer describes Doddie Weir, but one who was “…confident, a huge presence and immensely physical.” Weir was 18 at the time.

For far too many people nowadays, ‘ultra-running’ constitutes no more than a dash for the bus, but as Adharanand Finn discovers in The Rise of the Ultra Runners, you’re likely to happen upon the sport’s single-minded cohort practicing somewhere in the Arabian desert or atop a snow-capped mountain range rather than on the high street. Finn sets himself an ultra-running target: to complete the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB), a 105-mile race around Mont Blanc, the route of which ascends 34,000ft (10,300m) and passes through three different countries.

Release date: 04th April, 2019

Gilzean needs no introduction to a generation of Dundee or Tottenham Hotspur fans (nor to those of us who form part of the baby boomer cohort) who were lucky enough to see him play. Though he always seemed to play second fiddle to his strike partners, Jimmy Greaves and, later, Martin Chivers, the big Scot, whose bald pate aged him and gave him the air of a well-liked uncle, was deadly in the penalty area. He notched 133 goals in 429 appearances for the north London side. (read review)

Kevin Keegan’s story is well known.

In 1976, he was also voted Footballer of the Year. But it was his time at Newcastle United as manager that rekindled the passion of a footballing public starved of success for decades and upon which much of My Life In Football concentrates.
