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

Yeah me too, more so not taking a limping Fulton off.

Yeah Robbo should have got on instead of Hamilton imo.

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

 

Aye.

 

Straight from the club.

Took about a millisecond to decide on this purchase. Robbo...A Gift from God would have also been a good title too, seeing as he is. Nothing but love for that wee  man. My hero, so glad that I was one of the lucky ones to witness his whole career.

He's famed for his total recall. Nothing will be left out.

He is, by a margin, the person who has given me most enjoyment watching the Hearts.

Canny wait till the book signing.

Just got two tickets for my dad n I. Total legend of a man 

Is that the evening with Robbo ? or the one with Souness ?

 

I was considering going to the Souness one being a Liverpool fan but i'm no sure and no wanting to sit there listing to him possibly speaking of his time with Rangers.

It was unfortunate for John, but Jim Hamilton was more used as an extra defender against the late aerial bombardment that Rangers launched in those late minutes. We were hanging on and needed the height advantage that Jim Hamilton gave us during all those extra minutes at the end.

As things panned out, John got his winners medal. If we’d been 2 or 3 up, I’m sure JJ would have brought John on, but winning was paramount to end the long wait for a trophy. Sentiment couldn’t come into it.
If Rangers had equalised, we would have lost. Hearts were knackered and, in my opinion, would not have survived extra time. That would have been really devastating for all Hearts people, including John.

Am I right in thinking that the standard entry doesn’t include a signed book? I have the gold ticket, which includes a signed book, although not personally signed for me.

Would the only way to get another signed book, on the night for a Christmas present, be buying another gold ticket which may not be used by anyone, other than me getting another signed book?

It is probably obviously the case but I’m just asking to be sure I’m right.

I’ve been to these Eventbrite events (not footballers) before and they are superb. Expensive but worth it. 
 

Id hope that Robbo would sign some copies for the club shop to sell as normal as well though but probably doubtful .

 

I can’t attend but will buy the book for sure

He’s still finishing off the tickets from the ICT match.

You stole my exclusive! You coming down the Pans for yours? Some of my photos are in it. I never took them , I hasten to add, rather inherited them from the late Bert Renton but they are officially mine and apparently, along with Bert and our supporters club, I'll be credited for providing them. Cheesing!!!

That is some claim to fame, I noticed you teasing about the book but didnt realise you were a contributor :) 

 

Would love to make it down to the Pans but I have the kids Friday to Monday so any socialising has to be midweek.

It’s about time we did lunch and, funnily enough, books were always a reason. I’ll try and pick up a signed one for you if you’ve not ordered one elsewhere and we’ll meet up?

That would be very much appreciated. I am sure it is my turn to buy lunch (I think the last time was when you gave me the Stanley Matthews book back.....) 

 

I dont work Mondays so that would suit me best.

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

I can answer that. 

 

It's not how many you sell, rather how much of that demand you can concentrate into one week. So, selling 20,000 copies over two years is one thing, whereas selling *just* 3,000 copies in one week is another - and the latter bags you a best seller. So, manipulate demand.

Thanks. I knew there would be a way of doing it, depends in what other books are selling that week also. I hope they’ve got enough copies printed for between now and Xmas.

Heard Robbo at an after dinner speech quite a few years ago, he's funny and his comic timing was spot on.

 

He was apparently the guy who gave Neil Pointin the nickname "Dissa"

 

🙂
