Condensing Stuart Hall's unique take on football is a task brilliantly achieved in this book - part memoir, part collection of reviews. Hall's use of the language is sometimes huffed upon by fellow fans, but give me his sumptuous take on things any time.
A brilliant read which should also be part of the curriculum for school students.
