ROTHMANS

Post by LEATHERSTOCKING » Mon Aug 11, 2008 12:50 pm

Best I could do pricewise was £15 including postage @ Soccer Books Direct although the webmeister tells me he saw them in Waterstones in Glasgow for £15 too so SBD is the best buy because I don`t have to waste petrol money & car parking fees in visiting grotty Glasgow city centre. I`ve tried ordering books from them in the past but they want the full dosh up front nowadays which means two trips in (with no assurances on delivery dates) and my delicate sensibilities can`t stand that! The Glasgow Borders don`t seem to have any copies at all.

I'll buy the Rothmans book because I always have, but was interested to see that the SPL and SFL have signed up to this:
http://www.acblack.com/Catalogue/detail ... pt%5Fid=11 which is described as the official yearbook.

Very wary of any new product that claims to be the best, especially as it places the emphasis on full colour and previews. Anyone got a copy or seen it in the shops?

It`s very disappointing that the Scottish leagues two sponsors can`t come up with the moollas to let David Thomson resuscitate the League Review, easily the best for Scotland and greatly missed.

I've seen it but didn't buy it. Nothing there for Scottish football that isn't in Rothmans as far as I can see. Certainly nothing on Stenhousemuir along the lines of the preview on the web page for Liverpool.

Agreed. Rothmans is at a fiver off in Waterstones. Borders hadn't received their copies as of yesterday. As an aside I see the NOTW has been picked up and published after all, as the Nationwide football annual.
