So when Dundee FC chairman Bob McCracken, a man of vision, ambition and moderately priced suits, offers Lloyd the chance to play his part in restoring the once-proud club to its rightful place in Scottish football, the shy 17-year-old sees it as a stepping stone to bigger things.Instead he finds himself drawn into a battle for football’s very soul waged by Jocky, the team’s moustachioed, mononymous and megaphone-wielding manager, and seeking solace between the thighs of Dundee’s first female binman.The Tartan Special One, asks the big important questions and a load of wee shitey ones as well. It’s pure teckle, aye?The Real Leigh Griffiths Blog grew from a surreal post on the Pie and Bovril website (www.pieandbovril.com) to attract hundreds of thousands of readers worldwide and national media coverage. For two years, viewers from as far afield as Australia, South Korea and Russia logged on for their latest fix of absurdly hilarious antics at Scottish football’s most dysfunctional club.The Tartan Special One is a satirical novel intended purely for entertainment purposes. The content is purely the product of the author’s warped imagination, and Barry Phillips and Teckle Books accept no responsibility for the accuracy or otherwise of this information.“Boundlessly imaginative, gleefully silly, occasionally nightmarish and always inventively filthy, The Tartan Special One is by some distance the funniest book I’ve read in years.” Christopher BrookmyreVery funny, brilliantly evocative and expertly captures the troubled world of Scottish football. The Tartan Special One also perfectly demonstrates the crippling, life-altering horror for those unfortunate enough to stray within emotional range of Dundee Football Club. Neil Forsyth
