1 INCREDIBLE CREDIBILITY – NANCY DELL’ OLIO

Who would have thought that the humble Football Poets would appear in Nancy’s recently published autobiography?

Amazingly, this appears to be how Nancy discovered just how powerful a truce and football can be in the world . I can just see Sven looking over her shoulder in wonder, can’t you? This may be a reason to buy the book – but it would be easier to find better reasons………..perhaps. Like the black silk trench coat on the cover, maybe? But seriously ” Well done Stu…if well done is apt that is! ” Crispin
