Constant Paine

 

Reviews...

‘You can’t accuse the author of this excellent tome of not doing his homework.. The result is a comprehensive analysis of what made Paine tick, as well as how he made the teams he played for tick,,, By the end, you know just about everything there is to know about Paine the football man, but Paine keeps his private life out of sight and the author, quite rightly, has shown no desire to intrude. This book is devoid of sensationalism but jam-packed with relevant information. If only every football book was half as good.’ (Tim Springett, When Saturday Comes).

‘The quick test of a football biography, “the inverted-comma count,” is passed with flying colours, with extensive interviews with the subject and those who knew him at various stages of his life. Liberally illustrated, this is as comprehensive a biography as you will find anywhere in football, as befits the subject.’ (Programme Monthly & Football Collectable).

'This first-class publication is beautifully produced, meticulously-researched and rather cleverly written. It is enhanced by 200 nicely-chosen illustrations and a comprehensive statistics section. I cannot recommend it highly enough.' (David Powter, WINGER: The Review of British Football)

‘It must rank as one of the most comprehensive biographies of a footballer… there is the fascination of dressing-room politicking and insights.’ (David Foot, Western Daily Press).

'This is a book for those who love football, its characters, its tactics, its place in society... Terry Paine served Southampton and England well. In return he is well served by this biography.' (Ron Allison, (Saints match-day programme).

Frank Keating's Guardian selection of the top sports books of 2008 included just two on football, of which Constant Paine was one.

The Daily Telegraph’s Spring selection of five 2008-09 football books included Constant Paine, which was described as‘an endearing biography… This one’s a rarity: not too many books analyse the characters of both Mick Channon and Nelson Mandela.’
