This is a very funny book, empathetic, strong on observation and realistic, honest detail. The book charts the swing in football towards celebrity, WAGS, big money, while the second division club supporters trudge on, supporting their teams, week after week, through thick and thin. It is very of the moment.
Football fans - real ones who stick with a team throughout their lives, are the potential readers and word-of-mouth market for this book.
The detail on the pies, grounds, supporters' songs, humour, rain, travel to matches and grounds, is very real and convincing.
It is excellent, well researched, and thorough.
