By Peter Richardson

When Steve Bruce was sacked as our manager, after that dismal home defeat to Wigan in November 2011, Peter Richardson decided to write a (joke) application to the club, asking to be his replacement. He was amazed to receive a reply - a credit to our club, many others wouldn't have bothered - and the idea for the book was hatched.

The book compiles all the applications and the varied responses he received, plus stories thrown up throughout the application processes. His tongue-in-cheek account is full of real life stories about his time watching the lads, including when he crashed his much-loved Fiat Punto, being put on the spot by a saleswoman at a petrol station and entering the official odds to manage one Premier League club.

Rejected is a great read. It will make you smile and wish a club had taken a punt on Peter. Given the consistent failures of supposed 'football men' as managers, you think he can't have done much worse, particularly if he'd been given a chance and players had bought into his enthusiasm.
