They do all the great Got, Not Got series
and plenty of other retro sports titles.
“The best autobiography title I’ve come across for years,” enthused talkSPORT’s Paul Hawksbee last week, as he quizzed United legend Mick Duxbury on It’s Mick Not Mike – and the questionnaire responses he’d given to Shoot! magazine back at the end of the 70s.
‘Re-Focus’ is a regular slot on talkSPORT’s hugely popular Hawsbee & Jacobs Show, where Paul and Andy find out whether stars of the past can remember their favourite TV shows and singers, their car and ‘players to watch out for’ back in the day.

And the same goes for It’s Mick Not Mike (“laconic, revealing and unpretentious… an impressive document about life in English football in the 80s” – Soccerama). Mick played more times for Manchester United than any other player during the 1980s, clocking up nearly 400 appearances in a key era for the club which was full of entertainment and controversy, sowing the seeds of unprecedented success.
Mick has a superb range of personal anecdotes and many a revealing insight to share on an era that shaped the future of Manchester United, stretching from the mid-70s to the dawn of the 90s.
