Reading this book on the long haul back to Norwich from Wigan,I started off with a few giggles and ended up with full scale guffaws that ensured I had two seats to myself all the way home. '92 Pies', Tom Dickinson's epic voyage around all 92 league grounds in a season - and sampling a pie at each one - is the lone fan's essential travelling companion. However bad the match, atrocious the pie, or if they've got Robbie Savage on 606, dip into Tom's sharp book and your day will improve. What you'll do is look up your team first to see if the man got it right; then your second team; then the team you hate (you get the point) and finally all the new teams you'll be meeting this season. (Look on the face of the mighty Norwich City heroes and tremble.) Tom Dickinson is the wittiest writer not to appear in the sports pages, and he captures the essence of every ground I've ever been to. Someone should snap him up.

Loved this book, a great first hand account of what it's like to be a football supporter. The author takes us through the highs and lows of the English game as he struggles to watch all 92 clubs in just one season.
Easily accessible short chapters, Funny, informative and tense, would recommend to any football fan, and probably even non-football fans.

Superb book, its about a fella who basically decides to do all 92 grounds whilst having a pie at each one, coming bit of celeb on the football scene for a bit, it does start a bit slow and you sense the author may be having second thoughts but he sticks at it and its well worth it....the highlight for me is his trip to Chesterfield which had me in stitches, won't give anymore away though, i was a bit put off by the price for a couple of weeks but was well pleased i decided to buy it....!!!

Format: Paperback
This is the type of book that may well appeal to football anoraks everywhere but although the subject matter is certainly interesting enough, the author's writing style is pretty torpid and repetitive, so reading it quickly becomes a bit of a chore. Additionally, it's full of annoying typos so it looks like a rush job.
Shame, really. Like a direct free kick that only curls elegantly straight into row Z, it's a nice idea but very poorly executed.

Moreover, minus 1000 brownie points for the frankly appalling decision by the publishers (and presumably not the author's choice) to feature prominently on the cover a match ticket from the univesally disliked Milton Keynes Dons, the franchised pariahs of English football who notoriously killed off Wimbledon FC and then purchased their place in the Football League. This fact alone ensures I would never consider keeping the book in my house!

I bought this as a gift for a colleague who's an avid football fan. He thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was very witty and well written.

This book is a must for any travelling football fan. I'm still amazed how Tom managed to watch a game at all 92 league grounds in one season. The logistics of the challenge make this book a really interesting read. I must admit that I immediately headed for my own team's chapter first and then headed to some other grounds that I've been to but I soon found myself starting at the beginning and joining Tom on his mad adventure. An earlier review states that this book lacks structure! The structure is plain to see - each chapter is a game. Couldn't be simpler. A really fun read with some great photos. There are also more photos and some extra chapters on [...]
