Decline and fall

The festive period proved to be kind to Newcastle Utd, but prior to the win at West Ham we were on a dismal run of form. It was against that backdrop that I read Martin Hardy's Tunnel Of Love, my review of which is now up on The Two Unfortunates. The book, which chronicles the club's declining fortunes from the summer of 1996 to relegation in 2009, isn't as good as its predecessor Touching Distance, probably inevitably, but is still well worth picking up if you're a fan of either Newcastle or (in)glorious tragicomedy.
