ROTHMANS FOOTBALL YEARBOOK 1999-2000; edited by Glenda Rollin and Jack Rollin; Headline, paperback, pounds 18.99

Autumn simply wouldn't work without Rothmans. This edition offers the usual indispensable mix, put together with the usual care. There are one or two small changes in the presentation - the club information has been tidied up, the squad details for all the English league teams are now grouped together - but they are all improvements, and naturally it is still very recognisably football's bible. If you need any encouragement to buy it, there are now recommendations from Martin Tyler on the front and John Motson on the back. What more could you want?
