The follow-up to 2015’s “Touching Distance”, “Tunnel of Love” takes up the story where that book concluded in 1996, chronicling life at SJP until 2009.

Combining his time in the press box with first-hand contributions from major figures in that period of our history, Martin Hardy dissects the events that put Newcastle United on the front and back pages of the newspapers.

Be it Sir Bobby, Barcelona, Bowyer & Dyer, Gullit, JFK, KK, Milan, Owen, Shearer, Toongate, Ashley or Wembley, it’s all in there – and lids are lifted.
