Should be a quality read, bearing in mind the absolute legends that he brought to the club.

 

The list of tributes to Geoff Twentyman in itself is a 'Who's Who' of the great Liverpool teams of the 70s and 80s. And all of them know that they owe their careers to Geoff Twentyman.

 

His son, Bill, has worked really hard to get this done, and to make it a good read.

 

It has extracts from his Dad's diary, which reads, for example :'Toshack, 18, Welsh. Good in air. Worth a second look' and so forth.

 

Or the tale of how he knew that the Mancs were secretly watching Ian Rush, and convinced the club to buy him straightaway.

 

All proceeds to Alzheimers, which sadly affected Geoff in his later years.

 

As an aside, Bill Twentyman is planning to do a book launch at the Tower Thistle in Liverpool [Date to be confirmed]. The idea at this stage is to have approx. 100 people, at £30 per head, to include a meal and a talk from an assortment of players brought to Liverpool through his Dad. Who turns up obviously depends on the date, work commitments etc. but there are a lot of absolute Liverpool legends who have promised to help out in this respect, so regardless it will be a quality line-up.

 

The publishers aren't sure re. the venue and general idea, so support would be appreciated.

 

Bill Twentyman can be contacted at his Gentleman's Barbers establishment on 0151 949 0220 (Oxford Road, Waterloo).
