Seen this on Facebook I’ll be buying. Will be interesting on his take of what went on during the Vlad era at the beginning plus what on at Newcastle.

Looking forward to this. Great for reading while on a sunbed in the med drinking a cold beer…hopefully.

I can’t be bothered with autobiographies, however, I will definitely make an exception for this one. 
Some great stories to be told I’d imagine.

About time ya wee legend.

 

That's my best Christmas pressie of 2021 sorted.

 

It will be like the Broons or Oor Wullie annuals in the 70's: read clean through on the day.

What's it about?

It’s about how an Edina Hibs player grew up to haunt and terrorise Lochend Hibs.

Is there a free hammer with every book? 

 

Can't wait to get this.  Even when I'm finished it I'll pretend to still read it on the train to wind up them.

I spoke to the wee legend in the gorgie suite on Sunday and got a nice photo with him, he was looking well and in good form. 
Can’t wait to read the book.

My Xmas present sorted as well along with the annual bottle of Drambuie.  The price of that stuff here is criminal.

Given that this book will feature Hibernian significantly, wonder if it will be on sale in their shop, assuming they've got a shop.

How many does it need to sell to get on the best seller list, this will surely sell in the tens of thousands.

Quite possibly, he’s in a very small group of Hibs fans that I can actually put up with 😆

I am really looking forward to reading it but I would recommend that rather than buying it from Amazon, you buy it from the club shop or a bookshop. Amazon take a huge % from books that other places don't

More a train/ bus waiting room, or an afterthought - take your pick😂

VIP tickets booked. Looking forward to once again sharing a precious moment with the hero of my childhood.....if someone had offered me a choice between Superman and Robbo to score a last minute winner against Hibs when I was 10, Robbo would have been running in celebration before Clark Kent had even undone his tie...

The King.

The King of Hearts was the wonderful Willie Bauld.

 

Robbo, my second all-time Hearts hero, is the The Ace of Hearts.  👍

 

If I get no other book in my lifetime, this one will be the best.

 

I couldn’t love another man any more than wee John.

Might get tickets for it

 

Will they have books on the night to buy and get signed?

You live near Edinburgh, you’re a Hearts fan (?) and you only might get tickets for it?

Glad to see they have managed to rebuild and repair after an ***cough*** un-named and un-identified assailant used an unidentified weapon ***cough broom handle found on Princes Street*** to relocate some of the glass in the shop windows in the early 2000s.

If I can get the time off work then I’ll be there

 

I just wondered if books will be available for sale on the night and can you get them signed?

There is a package to get a signed book and admission. 

 

Think it is £15 for straight admission and £40 for admission and signed book. Then other more expensive packages for getting photos taken, event sponsorship etc

Agree with this, particularly buying it from the club shop as the club benefits from Robbo, again!  Perhaps they could arrange signed copies?  After all he had lots of practice signing Inverness tickets for us last season.

Hey Morg I remember you pulled me up for the same lol and you’re absolutely correct Willie is known as the king. 


Robbo Is my all time hero.

 

Not only a Hearts legend and a pure Gentleman but also a very nice person.

I have harboured a grudge against JJ since 1998 for bringing on Jim Hamilton in place of Stephane Adam in the cup final.
