Trying to bolster my ECFC book collection. I have ordered Gus Honeybun... Your Boys Took One Hell of a Beating: A Love Affair in the Lower Leagues
Is it any good? Too late now because I’ve ordered it but wanted to know if anyone else had read it and came away feeling satisfied with the purchase.

if not, it’ll go in the box with the other City stuff I have never read.

It has its own style which any readers of The Exe Directory back in the day (still the original and the best fanzine, with due respect to the ones that followed which I still bought/buy 👍) will be familiar with which is unsurprising given the author. It certainly brought back a lot of memories for me although I am a touch younger than Simon so don't quite go back to The Cup Run. A familiar tale of being a lower league football supporter that most of us can identify with in some way or other. Well worth a read.

I’m only about a quarter of the way through this book and finding it a really enjoyable read. I like the bite size chapter format. Well written and brings back a lot of memories of similar days out for me when I was younger.
