Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
All I know is that I would gladly by a book by Clyde Best, but wipe my arse on one by Carlton Fucking Cole.

I loved Pop, I knew how good he was when he was playing for Newcastle with him and big Wyn Davies up front, I was in awe of how such a small bloke could get so much height on his headers

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
What an absolute joy. Basically, every West Ham goal in the 70s was scored by Pop Robson.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
Theres quite a few of Clyde's goals on this. Ah, the 70's, my favourite time at West Ham. Theres also a Pop Robson hat-trick and 2 from Clyde that I haven't seen on the usual youtube videos, bought back memories

100 goals from the 70's

Yes I heard him talk about that 10 years ago.

big part of our history so should be respected.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
Is it true that he turned up to the Boleyn for his trial on the wrong date. There was no coaches there or anything, so they took him round to the nearby house of John and Clive Charles, cos they were black too?

You can reserve the books over the phone and pick them up or get them delivered for £3.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I'll be there on Saturday for sure.

You're not really a West Ham fan are you?

My memories of Clyde epitomised what West Ham were about in the 70's,entertaining football but never achieving much . I always thought he looked like he had the last shirt left,always a bit small for him.

Wouldn't mind trying to get a copy.

Like the all white away kit we played in at Burnley. Really enjoyed the interview on ts, well done Clyde son.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
I meant if a person was a West Ham fan rather than seemingly accusing you of not being a West Ham fan

Good luck, Clyde. Hope he sells lots of books.
If I see it in Waterstones I will continue my usual campaign of rearranging the displays to promote worthy books and hide others.
Frank Lampard's last book is in the GAY section if anyone is looking for it along with the Big Sam TOME.

Maybe if you were a West Ham fan you might be interested in the thoughts and experiences of someone who was part of the club in the 1970's. It's not always the best players who have the best stories.
If you were black you might like to hear what it was like as one of the pioneers in top flight football.

We all know from recent painful experience how hard it is for West Ham strikers to achieve anything.
Am always in awe of someone like him who came to a supposedly civilised country to play football and was faced with trying to do that while thousands of people racially abused him week after week after week.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
My memories of Clyde Best as a player were he was either one of two. 1)Incredibly great game or2)Incredibly bad game.No middle of the road average games just one extreme to the other.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
Don't want to offend anyone who has good memories of the bloke etc, I never saw him play, but he has always striked me as a bit of a freeloader. Why would anyone want to read his book? Was he actually any good? Never known anyone who has lived of the simple fact, for decades now, that he was a reasonably famous black footballer back when...don't suppose you can blame him, but it's never really sat that well with me, and he wouldn't give a fuck about that of course.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
One of my first away matches outside London was at Norwich, '72-3.

The ignorant Norwich bastards kept up the chant of "Clyde Best is a nigger" throughout.

We, supposedly the most racist fans in the universe, would have torn the bastards apart for it, if it wasn't for the segregation.

Shame Clyde didn't score our winner.

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
He was one my favourites as a kid along with Pop Robson (albeit via MOTD and The Big Match)

Re: Clyde Best - Book signing on Saturday
Never quite the same player without Geoff Hurst alongside him supplying the ball. But a great player on his day that was a handful.
