The footballing diary of Ivano Bonetti for me.

This is a timely moment to look back at the growth of the supporter ownership model in England and Wales, then further afield in Scotland and Europe. Supporters Direct has grown from Brian Lomax's original vision into a real focus for the trust movement based on cooperative ethics. Now at the epicentre of the new joint organisation with Football Supporters Federation, SD can be reenergised to make a difference at clubs great and small, bringing football back to its communities.

I'd like there to be a full in-depth history of Burnley FC, from the perspective of the owners/chairmen/directors who established the club, and those who have followed on and continued the tradition of being a local club run by local people, in the face of an influx of money from multi-millionaires from overseas into the English game.

Thanks Deborah, I have already liked the pinned tweet!

The rise of the minnows. A book about the tiny clubs who have made it big in their countries, like Ostersunds in Sweden, Eibar in Spain and Hoffenheim in Germany. It could look at how the clubs have gone from being nobodies to top division regulars and in some cases winning trophies and playing in Europe, the men who made it happen, the sometimes offbeat methods they used and the transformation of the towns where the clubs are based.

The memoirs of Paul Weld, former secretary of Portsmouth. Paul served the club from 1973 until 2011, in all four divisions, for nineteen different managers, ten different owners, and through two periods of administration. He would have had dealings with all the shady characters who have been involved with the club, including an owner who didn't exist.

A book about football in East Germany and the link between the political system, laws and government during that period and the impact it had and continues to have on German football and whether that period explains the difference in success since reunification of teams from the east and west.

How not to run a football club!

Missionaries, mercenaries or refugees? The history of cricketers who have excelled overseas after forsaking the country of their birth.

Thanks for the entry Tim and for liking the post on twitter.

Fighting the good fight. A history of political activism and football. Fan demos. Politically motivated clubs like St Pauli etc. Could be brilliant.

Frozen out. A history of Scandinavian football. I was after a book about Sweden's and Denmark during the world cup but nothing exists that's very comprehensive.

Nice Dan. Thanks for entering, make sure you have liked our facebook or twitter pinned posts on the giveaway too. Thanks,
