Given the stress and despair this has caused him over the last thirty years it’s fair to assume that this action would be considered child abuse today. Through a series of anecdotes about matches he attended, and some he didn’t, we learn about the events that shaped Andy’s character. His internal struggles with a working class inferiority complex and how he moved South in an attempt to do something with his life. All of this influenced his evolution from old school, lager swilling, foul mouthed teenager to old school, wine sipping, foul mouthed grown up.The book examines his relationship with his football team, comparing it to a lifelong love affair that will always end in disappointment, well for one party at least, and will be identified with by supporters everywhere.
