every forty something football fan should be all over this, 4 Aug 2012
i am a united fan and i loved this book - i didnt become a united fan because they won everything - if you are over forty you can remember the docherty / sexton / atkinson and early ferguson years when we were 'fourth in a two horse race'. This book is about why you fell in love with football as a FAN in the first place and why you dont feel it fulfills the same place in your heart, no matter which club you support. if your club is now owned by someone who puts money ahead of glory (nearly every club) then you will recognise a lot of your own life in this.
Even worse - if you are an ex=player from prior to the premier league era, you will probably cry. great reading.
