Format: Kindle Edition
A clever and original investigation into the obsessive psychology of the modern-day sports "fan". The fictional narrator's heart-warming struggle to redeem his otherwise sad and lonely existence through an imagined connection to his heroes via the so-called "blogosphere" allows Mr Hockin to deliver more of his trademark biting satire and piercing insights into Britain's degenerate and celebrity-worshipping culture. His muscular prose and lurid imagination puts one in mind of the very finest modern fiction writers: David Foster Wallace, Mark Leyner, even Ollie Holt himself. "Missed Goals: Manchester City 2012/13 Season Review" is certainly one NOT to be missed.

There's a good reason why Hocklin is known as 'The Poor Man's Tolstoy', the quality of the writing almost leaps at you from the page/screen and grabs you by the throat. Every undulation of MCFC's roller-coaster season is captured gloriously in an absolutely thrilling addition to the genre.

Format: Kindle Edition
Another fine addition to the bloggerati / literature crossover genre which was almost single-handedly invented by Mister Hockin. Insightful commentary, thoughtful wordplay, some forthright opinions and a dramatic reduction in spelling errors when compared with his last effort make this a five-star effort. However I missed his bread products round-up and hope he reinstates it for next year

What a great read. Sums up a somewhat frustrating season with great humour and opinion. Really enjoyed it and could have easily read another 100 pages. A bargain on the kinde aswell.
