An impressive look at football in the Middle East. I enjoyed it a lot. The author's enthusiasm was infectious.

Read this in Siberia recently. Awesome. K's descriptions of Africa went oddly well with snow and ice...

1.0 out of 5 stars Pizdets..., 25 July 2008
Of course JD was able to work as a reporter in Russia without speaking any Russian...Re-Odd choice of presenter/writer. British reporters in Russia just follow the BBC/Times party line...so why would they have to speak any of the local language? The present Guardian correspondent speaks Russian like a small dim-witted child (from London). What chance does he have of digging up any good stories?

RE - Erroneous and misapprehending - Khordorkovsky is the hero of the BBC/liberal western media...do you seriously expect them to investigate allegations that he was responsible for murder? (Mayor of Nefteyugansk anyone?)

2.0 out of 5 stars Photos?, 7 July 2008
A very odd book. It contains photographs of Riordan all over Moscow, meeting Yashin, standing in the street, kicking a ball around near Spartak's stadium, but not one photograph of him in a Spartak strip playing for the side. As for the claims that he was whitewashed out of history by the Russians and that is why he isn't included in official statistics...well, what would be the point? Even now, interviewed recently, not one Spartak player remembers him, and the club's then manager even commented that it would have been illegal to field a foreigner. Very strange. Yet with just one photo all these doubts could have been laid to rest. Odd...

2.0 out of 5 stars dry and humourless, 17 Jun. 2008
Thorough but written entirely without humour. Doesn't make any contact with the places he is writing about. Disappointing...
