Book Description

15 Jun 2012
The universal language of football has provided fans all over the world with memories to cherish for the rest of their lives. Football fans are really one of the same animal, that being a devoted die hard bunch who follow their team through thick and thin, one day hoping for that glorious moment that will live with them forever. This book is a collection of over 50 humorous stories written by the fans themselves. Author Dean Mansell has marshalled these stories from right across the land in the cause of creating this richly entertaining volume. A wide variety of real life tales are told by fans in their own special way. The ‘away day’ trip is the one that normally brings with it an adventure or two. The events surrounding the actual game, such as the journey to the ground or the tipple in the pub beforehand, often outshine the game itself. Football is about much more than watching your heroes on the pitch on a Saturday afternoon. It’s about sharing the misery of defeat on a cold wet Tuesday winters night, and the camaraderie that is born by ‘being there’ for your team with your fellow supporters. This is a proper football book written by the supporter, for the supporter and reminds us all why we love the game of football so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh what a goal!!! 27 July 2012
Stories from around the world of football, recounting those long and sometimes painful away trips, missed kick offs, floodlight failures and even Torquay's ridiculous ban on away fans. Written by the fans, the author has put together a fine collection of stories. Looking forward to book 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love football.... 4 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
...You must read this! An absolute fantastic read, and a must read for all football fans, especially those that travel the length and breadth of the country for their team. I couldn't put it down, read it one go and as such, had to read it again, so I guess you could say I read it twice in two go's!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Present 3 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Brought this as a Christmas present for my dad, we are both season ticket holders, and he loves it. We have been to many away games around the Country, and seen many wierd things like the stories in this book. A fantastic, and recommended, book for any football fan (young or old).
