Praise for Murphy's Lore

‘I like Bob's writing. It's thoughtful, funny, perceptive. It could be the Irish in him, the way he comes at things slightly askew. And wherever he goes, music's always close by.’ —Paul Kelly

‘Bob writes like an elegant gonzo journalist. He’s in the thick of it, writing from the tense silence inside the maelstrom, without the belligerence and bellicosity, but as a team man, a family man, and one who cares about the game, whether it’s a kick in the park or at the most scrutinised level.

‘These pieces take the reader across the boundary line to view the game from a player’s point of view.’ —Spectrum
