There are larger stadiums in the world, there are more impressive structures within half an hour's drive, but to Bolton Wanderers Football Club and its generations of supporters, Burnden Park has managed to capture both passion and excitement in its one hundred year history.
Every football ground in the country has a particular story to tell and Burnden is no different.
Built in 1895, on old barrels and cotton bales, the pitch became the most cambered surface ever seen in the Football League.
A great amphitheatrical bowl with neat fencing behind which the spectators observed not only football, but also athletics. The ground was opened on 17 August 1895 for the Wanderers' ninth annual meeting which attracted over 20,000 spectators.
The skyline was that of a typical Victorian industrial town, dominated by moorlands, factory chimneys, mills, rows upon rows of terraced houses and a unique railway embankment.
This book charts the history since then with memories of one hundred games played on the famous ground. From the FA Cup Final replay of 1901, known as Pie Saturday, to the ground's largest crowd of 69,012, a record set in 1933, and the disaster of 1946 when 33 people lost their lives. More recent events are also covered such as the demolishing of part of the Railway Embankment to build a supermarket and the possibility of long-term relocation.
Front cover shows: A recent aerial view of Burnden Park; Celebrations after yet another Cup `giant-killing', this time over Aston Villa in February 1994; On their way to the famous Wembley Final against West Ham, Bolton met Huddersfield in this third round match, where David Jack scored the only goal to send them through; The Trotters' most illustrious personality, Nat Lofthouse, whose 285 goals in over 500 appearances for Bolton and 30 goals for his country stand him amongst the greats of the soccer world.

As the man in charge of Liverpool FC, Bill Shankly laid the foundations from which his club grew to become a major power in European football. In his time as manager, Shankly discovered a wealth of footballing talent, and the players whom he nurtured were destined to dominate the British game: among them were Steve Heighway, Ian St John, Ron Yeates, Kevin Keegan and Ray Clemence, to name only a few.
But Shankly was more than just a football manager. His quick~fire responses to impertinent questions, his blunt observations on the game and his straightforward honesty made him a folk~hero to the footballers and managers who followed in his wake. Kevin Keegan, himself now manager of Newcastle United, is just one of Shanks's former charges to pay constant tribute to the great man. Above all, though, Bill Shankly's memory is cherished by the countless thousands of fans for whom he was a leader, an example and an inspiration.
Memories of Bill Shankly will live on in footballing legend long after lesser names have been forgotten. For this full and frank biography, Stephen F. Kelly has interviewed many of Shanks's friends, family and former team~mates, including Tom Finney, Brian Hall, Phil Thompson, Geoff Twentyman and Denis Law. The story they tell is a powerful and inspiring tribute to the determination and achievements of a remarkable man.

In this tense and often moving narrative, Bertrand Piccard and Brian Jones, the pilots of the Breitling Orbiter 3 balloon, tell the remarkable story of their record breaking round-the-world flight in March 1999, one of the great feats of human endurance.
By the time Piccard and Jones took off from Switzerland they had already had to overcome many problems, and the prospects of winning the race to be first round the world looked poor — a rival balloon was days ahead of them. Yet in the end they made history. The flight was a triumph not only of technology but of the human spirit.
During their 30,000-mile nineteen-day voyage, they survived numerous crises: for two days they lost communication with the world below, at one point they were almost overcome by poisonous fumes, and at 35,000 feet — with the outside temperature minus 50°C — their heating failed and water froze inside their tiny gondola, no bigger than a lift cage.
By the time they reached the Gulf of Mexico, their fuel had run perilously low, and their decision to carry on across the Atlantic reflected their courage and determination to succeed where others had failed. The further they flew, the more they became convinced that they were being guided by some invisible hand which brought them repeated strokes of good fortune.
Using their log book, journals and photographs taken on board, Piccard and Jones have brought their marathon flight vividly to life, capturing many moments of high tension and emotion. Their account tells of an epic adventure but shows also how two very different characters forged a unique relationship in the most challenging circumstances of their lives.

Liverpool FC has long been recognised as one of the greatest football clubs the world has ever known. Hugely successful throughout the 1970s and 1980s, with a record~breaking string of Championship and Cup wins at home and in Europe and a legendary support, it was widely believed that Liverpool were untouchable. But a series of disasters struck the club and almost broke its spirit: the tragedies of the Heysel Stadium and Hillsborough were compounded by the controversies of the Souness years.
With the growing strength of Manchester United, Newcastle, Blackburn and half a dozen other clubs in the Premiership, many of the game's observers predicted that Liverpool's fortunes would never again be revived.
Now, however, with the 1995 Coca~Cola Cup won and a place in Europe guaranteed for season 1995~96, things are looking up. And one man has seen the club through all the highs and lows of the last three decades: Stan Liversedge, known to the Anfield legions as the editor of the club's match~day programmes, was on the inside of this world~renowned institution for almost twenty years. His unrivalled access to the club's top players, its managers, backroom staff and its board of directors gives Liverpool from the Inside a fascinating authenticity. Ian Rush and John Barnes sharing their view of Graeme Souness; Bruce Grobbelaar defending himself against corruption allegations; and Peter Beardsley describing how Kenny Dalglish was ready to sign him for a record fee ~ and how Graeme Souness eventually sold him. Stan Liversedge writes about how and why the club makes its major decisions, about the effects of stress on managers and in chronicling the triumphs, tragedies and tarnished image of Liverpool FC, no one is better placed to reveal the inner workings of a club which has undergone massive upheaval in recent years.

In 1990 the racing world celebrated the fortieth running of the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes. Regarded as one of the greatest races in the world, it is a superb middle-distance test in which horses of different generations battle for supremacy. For forty years, Ascot has witnessed some of the most memorable moments of racing history on Diamond Day. The winners Nijinsky, Brigadier Gerard, Mill Reef, Busted, Ribot, Nashwan - make up a roll of honour that reads like a post-war history of the turf.
Stephen Brie has written a history of this race, depicting all the triumphs and disappointments, the epic encounters (who could forget Grundy and Bustino in their "race of the century"?) and the colourful characters that have helped to make it a uniquely great event. Diamond Days is a colourful, illustrated year-by-year account of astute comment and thrilling commentary.

Exactly how close was Howard Kendall to signing for Shankly? Did Graeme Sharp's constant whinging at the referees ever get them to change their mind about one single decision? How much did Alex Young earn when he first arrived at Goodison Park? And what went through Kevin Sheedy's mind when he flicked the V sign to the Kop?
But more importantly, does Andy Gray sound like Marge Simpson when he sings? Can Duncan McKenzie still jump over a Mini? And does Paul Bracewell ever wish he'd been chosen for a shampoo commercial?
All those nagging questions, which have bothered you for years, are answered right here and now in the most candid and forthright collection of interviews ever given by the royal blue heroes of past and present.
Talking Blue cuts straight to the chase with the questions submitted by disenfranchised Evertonians via the miracle of the World Wide Web and asked by the only woman with the temerity to do so, Becky Tallentire.
