FGR's tomes outsell Reece-Mogg!

Not a headline you'll read every day!

I gather that Reece-Mogg's universally panned book on The Victorians has sold just 700 or so copies, most of those being in Westminster

That means that he has been outsold by books on FGR authored by Tim Barnard, Shane and yours truly. Whatever that means!

One big difference however. Reece-Mogg was paid a thumping 5 figure advance which his publishers are unlikely to see back. In fact that advance is greater than the profits from both my books, all of which were paid to GDA charity. I guess FGR, Tim & Shane would echo that position too.

Still, I guess his advance will go some way towards the costs of his horse drawn carriage to and from Somerset?

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
