by John CallaghanA lengthy diatribe, this book was written in 1982 at the height of what, from the outside, seemed to be the bitter and unending Yorkshire Cricket Club civil war.
This is a verbose defence of Geoff Boycott the man and the player which would not have surprised me had it been written by the man itself such is the personal nature of the sleights being addressed and scores being settled.
This work focuses so tightly on matters Yorkshire between 1971 and 1981 that it glosses over significant events such as Boycott’s 100th century ( at Headingly no less) as well as rather more controversial events such as his touring of apartheid South Africa.
Scores are settled and tiny points of debate pored over at length with a blizzard of obscure statistics used to support points being made – reading this book felt somewhat like being pinned in the corner by the pub bore.
