Alan Buckley has managed five football clubs over four decades and more than 1000 matches, putting him amongst the elite in the game. Alan Buckley: Pass and Move – My Story reveals his entire story, including the beginning of his career at Nottingham Forest, goal scoring records and hero-worship at Walsall, transforming Grimsby Town in three spells along with less happy times at West Brom.
The book takes the reader through Alan’s adventures at Arsenal and Liverpool, and triumphs at Wembley along with managing a club in administration. There are many highs and many lows as he takes you on an absorbing journey through his life. Frank, funny and evocative, Pass and Move is filled with tales about the great and the good as Alan takes you on a journey through his 45 years of professional football, with all of the many highs and lows that it has brought.
Alan is regarded as Walsall’s greatest player, and Grimsby fans know he is the greatest manager in the club’s history. Paul Thundercliffe was inspired by The Damned United by David Peace, and Pass and Move is a fantastic read for supporters of Walsall and Grimsby, or any fans of Alan Buckley.
“Alan was on the radio with a friend of mine and told this great little anecdote. I half-joked to my friend that Alan needed to write a book and that I was the man to do it. Alan agreed!”
Paul Thundercliffe comments on the inspiration behind this autobiography.

Pass and Move
A wonderfully read for any Football person who appreciates the way the game should played. It's great too see Alan is brutally honest about himself as well as the people he has come across.
As a young boy with a nanna who was the kit lady at Grimsby I was lucky enough to sit on the end of the bench with Alan and watch the way Grimsby trained and I learnt so much from him and my beliefs in the way the game should be played came from Alan.
A fiery character with lots of passion.
Well done on a great book.
