They did it with Jaws, they did it with The Godfather... unfortunately they also did it with Death Wish, but then that's another story!

Folklore and Fables Part Two is the new book from Sheffield United's supporter liaison officer and heritage manager John Garrett.

Published by Vertical Editions, the Sheffield company behind best-selling United books including 'He's one of our own' and 'We're not going to Wembley', the hardback book is a 'greatest hits' package featuring the best of the award-winning article that John has written for the Blades' matchday programme for almost 10 years.

A unique and slightly off-centre look at Sheffield United FC, linked to his slightly eccentric family, music and life in general.

There are some 50 specially-selected articles that make fascinating reading, whether you are a United fan or not. There are a few tenuous links thrown in for good measure as well, and it will make the ideal Christmas present. The release has been timed for just before the festive season in a vain attempt to prove that John isn't, as is suspected, daft!

The book is also hardback, so, if you don't like it, it makes a handy doorstopper - or is ideal for popping under the back wheels of your car when it's parked up, if the handbrake isn't working properly!

The book is great value at just £14.99 and, being serious for once, is a cracking read - the best compilation you will get your hands on when Santa tries to fit down the chimney on Christmas Eve.
