Crosby and Reid re­turn

Sunday Sun - - Football -

SUN­DER­LAND fans will get a chance to re­live their highs and lows as sup­port­ers in a book launch fea­tur­ing Peter Reid and Mal­colm Crosby this week.

The two for­mer Black Cats bosses will be spe­cial guests at a book launch on Fri­day, November 16 at the Sta­dium of Light.

The book - ‘The Man­agers’ Tales From the Red and Whites 3’ brings to­gether the thoughts and reflections of six Sun­der­land bosses span­ning al­most 40 years and fea­tures in­ter­views with Ken Knighton, Lawrie McMen­emy, Mal­colm Crosby, Peter Reid, Gus Poyet and Si­mon Grayson.

Rob in­ter­viewed the old­est sur­viv­ing per­ma­nent Sun­der­land man­ager Ken Knighton, who took over the man­age­rial reins in 1979, while Graeme brought things into the cur­rent era with an in­ter­view of Si­mon Grayson, who de­parted last year.

The other two man­agers were one of the most con­tro­ver­sial fig­ures in the club’s his­tory - Lawrie McMen­emy - and the boss in charge of ar­guably Sun­der­land’s great­est es­cape from Premier League rel­e­ga­tion, Gus Poyet.

The book comes out mid-November with Reid and Crosby due to talk about their days at the club along­side all three au­thors with host for the night, Ra­dio Newcastle’s Nick Barnes.
