A follow- up to the highly successful Sharpe As A Blade (The 60s)

Sharpe As A Blade 2 (a 70's trip) is the second book in a trilogy of the life story of retired football 'lad' Ronnie Sharpe and his love affair with Sheffield United F.C.
To those who were there, football in the 70's represented a golden period. Forget about the bad pitches, bad haircuts and bad national teams. Forget about the shitty stadiums, the crumbling terraces and the fences. Forget the mass brawls and pitch invations, the smashed up football specials and the army of flare-wearing hooligans. The game had yet to be invaded by foreign mercenaries, sponsorships or corporate packages, and the fans were not yet priced out of 'their game'.
Here Ron remembers the high and the lows, the good times and the bad. He gives a first hand account and an honest insight into a terrace culture that was escalating out of control. He tells of the taking of ends, the taking of drugs and of taking the piss.
The football stories bring to life some of the crazy characters who followed the Blades and intermingle with the tales of music, fasion, life and the youth movements and cults of the era. The Sheffield night-clubs, pubs and the city's music scene are also coverd in vivid detail.
So put your feet up and enjoy a damn fine read.

236 pages- plus photos.Very strong language.

The book is a limited eition of 1,000 copies, each copy will be personally signed by the author if the buyer wishes.
