2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the columns, 4 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite disappointed with the book after enjoying a number of the columns. There isn't very much insight in the book and I think the book struggles in not having a central concept like the columns. In fact if there are any central messages in the book it is that fans have no right to comment on football as they 'do not understand the game' nor do they contribute enough financially to the industry to have an opinion - failing to understand why these other industries pump significant funds into football...

The chapter around agents I found almost torturous and at the very least laughable. Overall the book doesn't offer much more than the highlights I have seen in the media advertising the book.
