Want to win a copy of the latest Bolton Wanderers book? Read on...

Bolton Wanderers supporter and Lancashire Telegraph man Chris Flanagan has written a book entitled "Who Put the Ball in the Munich Net?" all about how little old Bolton made their mark on European football's elite.

In the space of 18 years Bolton Wanderers rose from mid-table in the Fourth Division to the UEFA Cup.

With the help of world renowned stars they qualified twice for the competition, drawing with Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena before beating Atletico Madrid.

Their UEFA Cup adventure was an 18-match journey that started with murder in Bulgaria and ended in controversy in Lisbon.

Along the way there were tales of burning stadiums in Istanbul, escape from armed police in Belgrade, brutality in Spain and Sam Allardyce 's encounter with jellyfish, together with the story of Ivan Campo's dog.

This book chronicles it all, with a foreword from Kevin Davies and further exclusive contributions from Allardyce, Gary Megson, Phil Gartside, Kevin Nolan, El-Hadji Diouf, Stelios Giannakopoulos, Ricardo Vaz Te, Ali Al Habsi, Gavin McCann, Joey O'Brien, Nicky Hunt, Henrik Pedersen and more.

In order to win your copy of this excellent book, simply add your comment in the box below, detailing your favourite memories from our UEFA Cup runs.

Whichever story gets the most 'recommends' will win.

We'll end the competition on Friday and announce the winners on the site by 5pm (UK time) this week.

I will also be posting a review of the book once I've read it!

Good luck and happy hunting!
