Hi Icy Gull

Definitely hasn't been blocked by me!!!

Are you gmail??? I have a g-mail account and have run a test and I cant send to my tiscali address. There have been problems all week at g-mail and I dont think they have sorted out their issue 100%?? Either that or there has been too much traffic to my address this week.

My g-mail account is on my phone so I don't want book traffic going to it but in this instance happy to help out. Here you go:

2. Sales income is now 6.5k

3. Come on the Albion....2 home wins in a year isn't much to ask. Ideally 3 would be perfect.

Latest update

Following my appearance on Albion Unlimited the book has now grossed over 8k and the profit to Macmillian is in excess of 3.5K (plus Gift Aid).

If you have read it and like it please spread the word. I have now set myself a challenge of getting that profit total to as near to 5k as I can. If you are inquisitive and can afford it please join in the project and make a difference in these difficult times.

Thanks again for your wonderful support.

Just a bounce for this. My Mrs has just got me a copy and it is money very well spent with everything going to a very good cause. Simon is a lovely fella too, very responsive through the process. Hopefully we can all help shift his last 100

From The Gutter To The Stars

A detailed memoir documenting the rise of Brighton & Hove Albion from the turn of the century to the end of May 2019. It provides an insight of following the club during this amazing period. Plus it also contains an insight into my personal life as sadly my mum, sister & wife had to battle against breast cancer.

It's jammed pack with fun stories which should appeal to all football fans including many relating to promotion & relegation battles, our battles with the Palace, Falmer For All, the building of the Amex, notorious away days including a passport dispute prevent me from attending one, my wife being kissed by Fatboy, a brief encounter with the Mini-Me, a famous actor being run over, talking all things Ashley Barnes with Alastair Campbell and me missing a train home from Preston.

£11.50 or £15 including p&p all profits going to Macmillan. Contact simon-jane@tiscali.co.uk to place an order. Its sold almost 500 copies and here's what people are saying:

“This is a brilliant book”

“I think it’s a great book”

“Anyone who follows a football club would relate to this book”

“I have found this a compelling read. For a person that my wife says doesn't do books I have been addicted to this“

“PNE away is some of the funniest stuff I’ve ever read”

“Jane what an amazing thing you and your husband have achieved, just brilliant”

Wow

Just wanted to say well played Lads.

At certain stages during that game I thought I was watching a Champions League game. During a recent interview with Mr Cantor on his Unlimited we spoke about the tinkering and the need for a consistent line up. Mr Potter is now delivering on that after giving everyone a fair crack and look at the results.

Absolutely amazing. A goalkeeper developed in the academy, an all English back 5 including 3 Sussex lads, a hardworking midfield and two strikers who worked their socks off (and I like others have been critical of Trossard-ability never in doubt but attitude appeared hazy).

Well played lads 4 clean sheets on the spin and 3 amazing wins. Congratulations to all those involved.

Thank You

Just a quick update

As a project we have just broken the 4k profit barrier, which when you add Gift Aid is a massive donation to Macmillan. Thank you for your continued support and generosity from all corners of our planet.

The book costs £11.50 or £15 including postal & packaging however contributions have flooded it over & above these prices.

For those who have read it and enjoyed it please spread the word, I have around 90 copies to sell, every penny bar postage now goes to the cause so please lets try and get as near as we can to the 5k figure. For those of you who haven't read it grab a copy while you can.

Enjoy the M23 Encounter

Many Thanks
Le Tiss
