Book Description

3 Dec 2012 Is the Baw Burst? (Book 2)
1 football fan
1 club in crisis
A whole new ball game

In season 2010/11, Iain Hyslop embarked on a journey which would take him to 44 football matches, from Peterhead to Berwick and Dingwall to Dumfries, across a single season. His travels led to the first volume of this book; an unofficial review of Scottish football.

This season, Hyslop – a diehard Rangers supporter – is following his team on their journey through the Third Division. He asks how the recent turmoil will affect the beautiful game in Scotland.

Including interviews with fans from all walks of life, Hyslop aims to represent the voices in the bar-room boardrooms across the country. But ultimately, he is searching for the answer to the question on everyone's lips:

Review

This view from the not-so-cheap seats (Hyslop is adamant that football has to be more realistic with its pricing policy) ought to be required reading for everyone involved at the top end of the game. --The Scotsman (on Volume 1)

4.0 out of 5 stars This book gives an interesting perspective to an outsider 10 Mar 2014

I liked this book because it gave a real feel for what it is like to be a Scottish football fan more than anything else I've read. Hyslop follows Rangers through the first half of their bottom-division season (covering much of the same ground as Rangers FC - We Don't Do Walking Away, but in a more interesting way). Between match reports, he intersperses questionnaires filled out by other fans with their opinions of where Scottish football is headed.

While I enjoyed the book, the fact that it only covered half of a season made it feel slight, and the questionnaires (interesting though they were) gave it a padded-out feel.
