Claws United v Rover City Rematch

December 6, 2011


Great news! – well for me anyway.  Claws United and Rover City are scheduled for a rematch next year when The Big Match is re-launched.

Everything will stay the same apart from a possible re-design of the cover and a change to the super static-electriciy game at the back which will now become a super blow-football game. The book was conceived as a type of football handbook, using natural enemies (or are they?), cats and dogs, on the opposing sides. It covers areas such as the fans, souvenirs, football skills and rules, and takes much of it’s inspiration North London where I live.

Look out for the book in April 2012.

    I’ll certainly look out for this in April next year. My grandson identifies strongly with the Reds. (When he was very little – about 4 years old – he refused to wear a blue band, as he said “I support Liverpool and they are Red”. He stuck to his guns and decided to watch on the sidelines instead of playing!) The book looks great.
