Browsed through Totten's autobiography today in Waterstones and there are some mildly interesting stories.
Apparently Andy Millen got £500 per season as a signing-on bonus but Totten said to home he wanted to see Millen play a few games before stumping up the cash. Millen was not happy about this and they fell out. Personally, I would have paid £500 out of my own pocket at that time to get rid of Millen. He did go on to have a fairly successful career but he was one of the worst players I have ever seen in a Saints journey.
Totten is obviously still VERY bitter about his sacking and this topic is covered at length. He refutes Geoff Brown's claim that he never gave young players a chance by claiming credit for the transfer fees received for Callum Davidson and Fizzy Scott. This is utter bollocks as neither of them played a first team game under Totten and if he had stayed on it is likely that both would have gone the same way as Bobby Mann and David Bingham, ie free transfers to Forfar.
He blames John McClelland for knifing him in the back and goes on to claim that Herman was only his 3rd choice to be his assistant after Roy Aitken and Danny McGrain.
One bizarre claim is that Steve Harrison turned down the chance to be McClelland's assistant when he realised that all the Saints fans desperately wanted Totten back as manager !
A quick skim through the non Saints sections suggested that if you like stories about what Big Jock said to Coisty on the Marble Staircase etc, then this book would be the perfect gift.
