East Stirling Pointless book Can't Post or Reply Privately

Have recently been given a copy of this 'fly on the wall' reportage of East Stirling's travails of a decade or so ago when, whilst not actually pointless ( both Berwick and Albion would be happy with their 22 point return) were widely regarded as the worst team in 'professional' footy in the UK.

It's a decent enough if limited read.

Wondered if anyone else had read it and had thoughts on it.
And if anyone wants the copy, do contact me and I'll happily post it on if you pay the postage costs.

Full of factual inaccuracies. Very patronising towards the Shire as well.

Tend to agree : although the concept of the book had merit - viz detailing life at a club scraping to get by - it's poorly carried out as there is little in the way of development of character or depth of understanding as the season unfolds.

Just mentioned it here in case anyone fancied a read.
