Best Sellers List Released!

In Amazan's latest Best Selling Book list, 4 of the top 5 books are either written by or biographies of none other than our very own Stallions. "Football for Dummies" by Owen Bellamy has become so popular that there are rumours that he will be producing a sequel, "Soccer for Dummies", in an attempt to infiltrate the highly lucrative American market:

"My time at Warwick University was invaluable, and having been taught soooooo well by the lecturers there, I have learnt enough to not only be an amazing player, but also a best selling author. There's money to be made teaching the Yanks how to play, so why not?" – Bellamy back in 2004, fuelling rumours of another book.

"Pondo: My Story", the highly popular biography of legendary Stallions marksman Stez Pond, is still in the top five after an incredible 18 months:

"I keep banging them in, the fans are lovin' it" – Pond on why his book is selling so well.

One book is achieving a cult status, and that's "The Beautiful Game?" by Nathaniel Christopher, who carries out an in-depth study of the game's most "beautiful?" players. There are three chapters devoted to Peter Beardsley, with others including the likes of Luke Chadwick and Iain Dowie.

"It's not just about winning, but about looking good whilst getting the job done" – Christopher responding to the critics regarding the naming of his book "The beautiful game?" which was inspired by himself and his very short shorts.

Player/Manager Dan Baker's book "Baker: Made in Hillingdon" entered this week's list at number two, so was the big man himself disappointed?:

"On it like a car bonnet" – Baker, on the release of his new book reaching number two.

To purchase the books, please visit amazan.co.ck, or support your Stallions by buying from the Club Shop via the Galleries section.
