Saturday Bloody Saturday by Alastair Campbell and Paul Fletcher

Football manager Charlie Gordon is struggling with one defeat after another at the club he loves.  Only a decent Cup run is keeping him in work, but tensions are running close to the surface ahead of the next round: Chelsea away.

Footballers fall into two categories: artists or assassins.  Soon Charlie is going to find out which players can deliver – and just how much pressure they can all stand.

Meanwhile, as the country prepares for a general election, one of the most dangerous political assassinations in the IRA’s history is being planned in London.  An active service unit await the critical signal to proceed…

Both sides will converge on the capital for a result that will shake everyone’s lives, with consequences far beyond football.

Peer & Press Reviews

A story that brings together so brilliantly football in the 70s, and the dark days of the terrible violence we worked so hard to end, is a must-read for any fan of football or any friend of Ireland.

Bertie Ahern, former Taoiseach of Ireland

A gripping combination of football (as we used to know it) and terrorism (as we still know it).  And, no, I didn’t anticipate the explosive climax.

Delia Smith

With a lot of football and a fair bit of Ireland, this book was made for me.
