From the cover: “Michael Parkinson is football daft. He caught the disease from his father who stood for forty years in the same spot watching Barnsley F.C., a remarkable feat of endurance hitherto unrecorded. Michael Parkinson stood alongside his father for sixteen of those years before leaving Barnsley to seek his fortune elsewhere. Since that time he has seen football in many countries and once met a Laplander looking after a herd of reindeer in the Arctic Circle who knew Danny Blanchflower. Two years ago he started writing a sports column in the Sunday Times which became many things to many people: ‘Pathetic’… Liverpool fan. ‘Mr Parkinson should go far… Australia perhaps’… Football League official.”
