The World Cup.

The European Championship.




Yes, the best things in football do seem to come round every four years.



It’s perhaps fitting, then, that after four years of waiting…


four years of wondering…


four years of checking the Kube website


(and that’s just what I’ve been doing)

the sequel to The Victory Boys has arrived!!



Well, not quite arrived – not yet – but it’s so close that you can almost smell it.

And what does it smell like?

Well, it smells like team spirit!



The Victory Boys: Team Spirit.




Competition Winner!

Congratulations to Amel Abdullah who correctly answered the challenging question below to win a signed copy of The Victory Boys!

The question was:

TVB: the initials of The Victory Boys.

But can you name any two English football league teams to have all three letters** (T, V and B) in their names***?

The answer:

Bristol Rovers and Brighton and Hove Albion (although I would also have accepted Stevenage Borough since they changed/reduced their name to ‘Stevenage’ only last year and are still commonly referred to by their former name!)
