Eadie came on for Megson when we were 3 - 0 up! Wow, now that''s an attacking statement indeed! (Queue Hughton bashing....)

I think the clue is in the 10th word of the OP

[/quote]See my reply to someone else who is just as pathetic as you. I simply asked a question as I needed help on some research. Silly thing to do on here as I forgot that many of the posters here have nothing better to do in their lives than to find potential fault and argue the sky isn''t blue. I am a journalist who is ghostwriting an autobiography - or helping to write a footballer''s story. Can you understand that or does that not compute with you?

[/quote]A biography is written about a person by someone else. An autobiography is written by the person the story is about. However, many people have someone else to help write the story for them. See Darren Huckerby, Bryan Gunn and Iwan Roberts'' autobiographies as examples. In the same sense, every column you read is likely to be written with the help of a journalist.

[/quote]From the same source ie Wiki"

Sensationalist and celebrity "autobiographies"

From the 17th century onwards, "scandalous memoirs" by supposed libertines, serving a public taste for titillation, have been frequently published. Typically pseudonymous, they were (and are) largely works of fiction written by ghostwriters.

So-called "autobiographies" of modern professional athletes and media

celebrities—and to a lesser extent about politicians, generally written

by a ghostwriter, are routinely published. Some celebrities, such as Naomi Campbell, admit to not having read their "autobiographies".[cit

Most autobiographies are in fact ghosted Chops. So that isn''t unusual at all. Fingers crossed there is a book coming out and preferably about someone who was at Norwich for a long time so had a good story to tell about the club during that period . I didn''t buy Sutton''s book because he just wasn''t at Norwich long enough for it to appeal to me (as good as a player as he was).

I would hardly call pointing out what an autobiography is ... is being difficult

 

Nor would I suggest, that given how skeptical and dismissive you are if the forum, you would consider coming here for reliable infomation. How would you check what you were told was accurate ?

 

A final suggestion. Many autobiographies are ghost written, but the whole point is again. in the title ''ghost'' ie the general public is not supposed to know they are NOT written by the subject.

 

I can''t help think that were this to be true you have somewhat blown the gaff, a bit

Did Martin Peters ghost write his autobiography ?

 

An old cold hack went writin'' out
one dark and windy day
Upon a thread he posted
as he sought to earn his pay

 


When all at once a naughty herd
of re plied words he saw
A laughin at the ragged lies
and at his bludy chore


Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh
Ghost writers in the sky
