Football and whimsy, 27 Jan. 2011
What a fantastic little book this is. If you've grown tired of the commercialisation of football, much like the author clearly has, then this is the book for you. Dan takes a chapter each to take in a lower league game combining each chapter not only with a review of the game but also a bit of history about the place and a nice wee social commentary on the personalities in the crowd.
An utterly fantastic review with just the right level of football and whimsy. On top of this, it also poses some interesting questions regarding the future of Scottish football such as how do lower league teams counter the fact that many of their potential fan base leave their town each Saturday to go watch the Old Firm play.
Great read, highly recommended.
