The Miracle Of Castel Di Sangro
The Miracle Of Castel Di Sangro
by Joe McGinniss
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare to dream...and anything can happen, 10 Aug. 2012
Joe McGuinniss tells a story that reveals the true romance of football. It delivers on every emotion a supporter and player can experience - and plenty of drama too.

A rollercoaster ride at a club where almost anything was possible, a dream turned into a reality. As the book reminds us, "...not all fairy tales have happy endings. Just like not all miracles are forever."

For fans of the English Premier League, Carlo Cudicini (currently at Tottenham Hostspur, formerly with Chelsea) used to play for the team at the centre of this book - Castel di Sangro.The Miracle Of Castel Di Sangro

5.0 out of 5 stars Tickets please - The birth of global football, 10 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Four Weeks in Montevideo: The Story of World Cup 1930 A little gem this one.

The author, Hyder Jawad, captures the magic, vibrancy and eccentricity of South America and finds a way in to this story with a unique search for a ticket. That ticket gives us an entry to a magnificent story about the birth of the football World Cup in Uruguay 1930.

Also packed with well-research statistics. Who was there, who wasn't there and why.

The World Cup spawned from almost amateur beginnings, to the birth of a competition only rivaled by the Olympics.

Make sure you read it before the next World Cup in Brazil 2014.
