    I have just finished reading Jon Parkin's (ghost written) autobiography 'Feed The Beast'. The two forwards were written by Jilly Cooper - who met him when he was with Forest Green - and Tony Pulis - briefly his manager at Stoke! As a quick and very readable story of a career that somehow survived booze, gambling, depression and Malky Mackay, it's not bad.

    Close enough, it's Lea I had in mind. On reflection, I think the first one is spelled lee.

    Sorry, nope.

    to clarify having read my wording again, .question 2. is slightly cryptic and has no connection with question .1
