Soss is part of the old guard as I like to call them, part of a small clubs history, their greatest in fact. The team being Oldham Athletic. My first memories of watching Oldham as a child include some players, but not all. It does however include the physio. Strange as that might seem it's true amongst many people of the same age. That's why I bought this book. Ian provides a gripping insight into the highs and lows of his job and life. I doubt many physio's today can tell such stories. One day I hope to meet Ian again so I can thank him for this book, because it provided me with new stories and refreshed old memories I'll tell again and again.
