Book cover shows lots of ticket stubs ..... "on the Road....." .... "Journey through ... " led me to believe this was a book about a fan's weekly visits to watch Manchester United play. Lots of stories about getting up early, long motorway journeys, different culture at different grounds, individual flavour of places visited. Always wanted to understand what motivates fans to get up early Sat week after week to follow their clubs. So hoping for lots of stories devotional, reflective, funny. NOT QUITE. There are few subjects in this world I personally find more boring than men who seem to have no interest (bored apathy) towards the society in which they live (education , health, pensions, social services, the old folks home their parents live in , how we make and sell goods competitively (no opinions, couldn't care less other than what they parrot from the tabloids) who get hot under the collar about which £200K a week foreign player is playing each week and whether he's in the proper position. Same old inconsequential stuff week after week year after year. Boring and of no consequence to anyone. Well I'm sure Daniel is a great writer (British Sports Book Awards it says on the cover so he must be) and his writing is certainly much better than the rubbish in the tabloids but what he writes about ... NONE of the above ... not a word. Just who played, did they play well, should they play somewhere different blah blah blah .... I know there's a market for this and lots of people love it and I respect that but ... not my cup of tea ...sorry.
