Cakes and Bails: Henry Blofeld's Cricket Year
VGC. Simon & Schuster, 1998. First UK edition-first printing(1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2). Black hardback(gilt lettering to the spine, nick on the edge of the back cover) with Dj(two creases and nicks on the edges of the Dj cover), both in VGC. Illustrated with b/w photos. Nice and clean pages with light shelf wear on the outer edges(slightly yellow), inscription written on the first blank page of the book. Nice and clean book. 280pp including index. Price clipped. First edition. Review: Cakes and Bails finds Henry Blofeld, or Blowers as he is known to dedicated listeners of Radio 4's Test Match Special, on top form. Beginning with an account of a drunken champagne weekend in the company of Mike Atherton and Graham Gooch, the book proceeds to weave a delightful (and at times slightly unsteady) path through the 1998 cricketing year, from England's agonising winter defeat in the Caribbean, to the dramatic triumph over the South Africans in the summer. n nLike his Test Match commentaries, Blofeld's prose has a logic all of its own, as he moves from indignant outrage at the incompetence of England's cricketing establishment, to wonderfully dry descriptions of players and colleagues, crowned by the continual reappearance throughout the book of GLY--Geoffrey Boycott, the Greatest Living Yorkshireman. There are some lovely portraits of the players who set the season alight with Their performances, including the effervescent Jonty Rhodes, the heroic Angus Fraser (nicknamed The Schoolmaster by Blowers), and Mark Ramprakash, chosen for his brilliant maiden test century in Barbados. n nCakes and Bails is however, at its best in describing the sheer drama and tension which comes from a close test match, and Blofeld has seen quite a few over the last year. His description of Atherton's monumental battle with Allan Donald throughout the summer series is particularly memorable, evidence if any were needed that there is more to life in the Test Match Special commentary box than just cakes and champagne! Amazon cricket fans will also be amused by Blofeld's befuddled description of the creation of a website solely dedicated to his thoughts on the great game; whoever said that cricket was falling behind the times?.

Product Description: 'Football isn't a matter of life and death, ' Bill Shankly once famously said, ' it's much more important than that. ' In The Heart of the Game, Jimmy Greaves looks back over his long association with the sport to give his take on all things football, and attempts to make sense of our undying passion for the beautiful game. How has how the game changed from its working class roots to its current celebrity-driven image? How do managers like Sir Alf Ramsey compare to the Svens of today? Why have England stopped producing great goalkeepers? How come the football of yesteryear was more physical, yet the footballer of today is more injury-prone? Drawing on both his knowledge and love of the game, this is Jimmy at his fascinating, witty and humorous best. Fine/Fine. ISBN: 9780316730761
