Win A Copy Of Motty, John Motson’s Autobiography


For the past three days, we’ve been giving away a copy of FIFA 10 – the new video game from EA. In the next few days to next couple of weeks, we’ll be giving away a copy of the game on random days as well as football books.

Yesterday’s winner of FIFA 10 was JD Thomas. But if you want to try and win a copy of FIFA 10 for yourself, keep on visiting EPL Talk on a daily basis in the next week to find out when we’ll give away the next copy.

Today, however, we’re giving away our only copy of the hardcover book, Motty, which explores John Motson’s 40-year career in the commentary box.

We’ll be giving away Motty to one lucky person who correctly answers the following trivia question and sends his or her answer in by the deadline of 5pm ET/9pm UK time on Wednesday, October 28, 2009. US residents only.

Here’s the trivia question:

In what year did John Motson become a junior member of the Match Of The Day staff?

Send your answer via e-mail including your name and mailing address information to thegaffer[at]epltalk[dot]com — and make sure the subject line reads “Motty”

The winner will be announced on EPL Talk tomorrow.

If you don’t win or you miss the deadline, be sure to come back tomorrow when we’ll be giving away another prize — either FIFA 10 or a brand-new football book (either “The Manager” by Barney Ronay, or “Soccernomics” by Simon Kuper).
