FREE The Greatest: Scotland’s Best Eleven. Who's in, who's out?

221 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Ann in Arlington
Scotland has produced some exceptional footballers, players who stand comparison with some of the world's greatest. The nation may not be able to boast international trophies, but there have been many marvellous games and performances to savour.

But who were the greatest Scottish players? If the country could field the strongest eleven from its post-War history, who would get the call? And who would be on the bench?

The Greatest: Scotland's Best 11 is one fan's attempt to select, describe and celebrate the eleven finest footballer players, in team order, who have worn the blue shirt of Scotland from the end of World War Two until the present day.

Kenny Dalglish? Denis Law? Billy Bremner? Jim Baxter? Billy McNeill? Alan Hansen? Danny McGrain? Graeme Souness? Jim Leighton? Dave Mackay? Joe Jordan? Who will make the final cut?

The Greatest: Scotland's Best 11 is a considered and controversial reflection on the country's proud footballing heritage. It will provoke debate, discussion and argument, as well as provide nostalgic memories of the finest Scottish players to have graced the game.

It's a book no Scottish football supporter can afford to miss.

Sounds interesting. I might check this out.
Welcome to KBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
