The Sunday Times Bestseller!


Over the last weekend before Christmas 2019, I’ll be posting books 1st class, aiming for the following collection times:

Friday 20th: 5pm
Saturday 21st: 7am & 12pm
Monday 23rd: 7am

So orders placed on Sunday evening will be the latest I can send. Once the books are in the postbox, it’ll be down to the Royal Mail to see them through, so bear that in mind when ordering. If you really need one in a hurry and don’t need it signed, Amazon’s mad delivery service, or finding it in person in Waterstones or WHSmith’s in Leeds centre, or a good local bookshop might sort you out. Thanks!

A new history written by The Square Ball’s Daniel Chapman, aka Moscowhite, published by Icon Books in association with Leeds United to coincide with the club’s centenary celebrations.

Copies bought from TSB will be personally signed and posted out by Daniel Chapman, with an option to include a unique dedication or message in the book.

If you need a copy in a hurry or want it cheaper, the book is available from all good book stockists worldwide, including Amazon and Waterstones in the UK and Booktopia in Australia. If you ask your nearest bookshop anywhere in the world they should be able to order it in. Because of postage costs, this will be much cheaper than buying from here — but this is the only place to order one signed.

GET A BARGAIN: Some copies have arrived from the warehouse with minor cosmetic damage to the cover or jacket — bent corners, small tears — and have not been sent out to customers. They’re perfectly good readable books, though, so if you’re not fussy, use the discount code damaged-goods on your order to receive £4.50 off, and I’ll send you one of the less-than-perfect copies, signed and dedicated like all the others. (The odd discount price makes it easy for me to spot your request. If the code doesn’t work, it’s because I only have undamaged copies in stock.)

100 Years of Leeds United is a 456 page hardback book tells the story of a one-club city and its unique relationship with its football team.

Since its foundation in 1919, Leeds United Football Club has known more ups and downs than most, rising to global fame through an inimitable and uncompromising style in the 1960s and clinching the last Division One title of the pre-Sky Sports era in 1992, before a spectacular fall from grace at the start of the 21st century.

United remains one of the best supported – and most divisive – clubs in football, with supporters’ clubs dotted across the globe, all hoping for a return to the Premier League.

In 100 Years of Leeds United, Daniel Chapman delves deep into the archives to discover the lesser-known episodes, providing fresh context to the folkloric tales that have shaped the club we know today, painting the definitive picture of the West Yorkshire giants.
