29 Minutes From Wembley New City Book

Last updated : 16 July 2017 By CNS Sport

So 'Sky Blue Heroes', my book on Coventry City's 1987 FA Cup win took 12 months to weave together....this new one '29 Minutes from Wembley' has taken 16 months (we moved house, I became a full time taxi driver to my girls, Coventry got relegated and we won at Wembley again) and looks back at some of the finest players who played for the Sky Blues in Division One. The focus is on '80/81 and the team less than 30 minutes from a League Cup final vs Liverpool when they missed out... in the cruellest of fashions.

30 interviews this time, the majority who started their careers at Coventry and went on to further successes, for others they were not so lucky. They each tell the story of their time at Highfield Road. Over an hour with each player including Tommy Hutchison, Gary Gillespie, Mark Hateley, Steve Hunt, Danny Thomas, Paul Dyson, Garry Thompson, Andy Blair, Gerry Daly, Peter Bodak, Roger Van Gool, 'Harry' Roberts, Ian Wallace, Mick Ferguson and many more including cameos from John Sillett and John Motson.

I loved working on 'Sky Blue Heroes' and this has been fantastic too - please like, share, tell fellow City supporters - wonderful memories of our club and approved by all the players.

Published mid-October.
