Liverpool-based independent film producers, the Ettinger Brothers, have secured the film rights to our book and are looking to start filming in late-Summer 2014.

This is a wonderfully evocative, witty, thought-provoking and gritty trip down Memory Lane – one that every Evertonian and ‘nearly-but-didn’t-quite-make-it’ footballer will adore. Stan Osborne’s debut book captures a very special era in footballing history and his highly detailed ‘fly-on-the-wall’ insight into Everton’s title-winning season gives a unique perspective on a very special season – one that also underlines how different life is for today’s want-for-nothing footballing starlets.

I read the book from cover to cover in one night and smiled all the way through it. The book is a must for any Blue, and gives a great insight into the pain and disappointment that comes in even greater doses than the glory. In  fact I might just read it again! Joe Royle – former Everton player and manager

Norwich City were expected, at best, to just ‘make up the numbers’ during the first season of Premier League football in 1992/93. The team had barely escaped with their top flight lives the previous campaign and, in a pre-season that saw a new manager appointed, as well as their top player and talisman leave the club, few predicted anything other than a harsh struggle and inevitable relegation. How wrong could they be?!?

Edward Couzens-Lake’s  book looks back in detail at that time, the setting up of the Premier League and the season that followed at Carrow Road, including new and exclusive interviews from the players and officials involved with the club then, as well as the supporters. Personal retrospectives of a very special football club – memories which provide a fascinating insight for all Norwich fans to enjoy.
