This Is Our Time, The AFC Wimbledon Story (Book) - Niall Couper

This Is Our Time, The AFC Wimbledon Story (Book)
The story of AFC Wimbledon is far more than a simple football tale. It is a story of romance and hard work, mostly by those forgotten heroes of modern football – the fans, who, when the club they loved was torn away from them, rolled up their sleeves and refused to lie down. After the sale of Wimbledon FC to Milton Keynes, an unprecedented scenario in English football, the club reformed under a new name and entered the lower leagues. With no stadium, no players, no money, no manager, no staff and no kit, the fans were all that remained, and the club became a supporter run business. "This Is Our Time” is the story of the nine year journey which took AFC Wimbledon from the depths of non-league football back to the professional Football League, demonstrating in the process that football is, at its heart, about much more than television money and overpaid superstars.

"This Is Our Time” collects over 100 stories from the key figures involved in the club, including the players, the fans and fundraisers, coaches and staff and Dons Trust Board members, and covers the ups and downs, the controversies and the final redemption as the Dons reclaimed their place in the Football League. The author’s previous book on the club, "Spirit Of Wimbledon” has become a classic of the genre, and this follow up promises to do just the same. A must read for anybody with an interest in the beating heart of the beautiful game.

This official, club sanctioned and approved book will be supported by a matchday launch at the club’s stadium and involvement from key players, staff and the author himself. The publisher, Cherry Red Books, has been heavily involved with the club since its inception, including sponsoring their stadium.

Niall Couper was born in 1973 and lived on Inner Park Road, off Wimbledon Common, during his formative years. He started following Wimbledon in 1982 and became a regular at Plough Lane and, later,Selhurst Park. He became the editor of thealternative matchday programme "Yellow and Blue", which wouldregularly outsell the official programme three to one and eventually became the official AFC Wimbledon programme.Niall then wrote the book "Spirit of Wimbledon"(Cherry Red Books) and, in2004,was elected to the Dons trust board, only to resign a year later. Hehas remained a season ticket holder and now attends games with his daughters Amelia and Lyra.

It Is The Business Of The Future To Be Dangerous
Released on 30th January of 2012. Atomhenge, the home of the Hawkwind catalogue of 1976 – 1997 announce the release of a newly remastered edition of the classic 1993 album "IT IS THE BUSINESS OF THE FUTURE TO BE DANGEROUS”.

Released in November 1993, the album was a journey in a new direction for the band, seeing them embrace the emerging Ambient music movement (which had taken inspiration from Hawkwind’s earlier work), creating a lengthy album of experimental music in the distinctive Hawkwind style. Featuring outstanding tracks such as "Space is Their (Palestine)”, "The Camera That Could Lie” and the album’s title track, "IT IS THE BUSINESS OF THE FUTURE…” brought Hawkwind to a new audience and gained critical acclaim.

This ATOMHENGE reissue features a new essay and restores the original album artwork. It has been expanded to include the track "GIMMIE SHELTER”, recorded with SAMANTHA FOX for the charity album "PUTTING OUR HOUSE IN ORDER” and also includes a BONUS CD comprising the rare 1993 EP’s "THE SOLSTICE REMIXES” (featuring mixes by ASTRALASIA) and the "DECIDE YOUR FUTURE” EP.
Our Price: £10.95
