One Man Went to Mow
One Man Went to Mow
by Mark Worrall
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.33

5.0 out of 5 stars Boy's own escapades with the famous CFC, 20 Mar 2008
This review is from: One Man Went to Mow (Hardcover)
Okay okay I am a fan, in fact i've had a huge crush on Mr Worrall for a number of seasons and I have to say he looks very dapper on the front cover which is worth the money alone for the photo of the staffy with the celery sticks. As far as the writing goes, like the adverts the book does exactly what it says on the tin. If you love Chelsea you will love this book. If you follow Chelsea away in Europe you will relate to the content straight away. If you dont follow Chelsea away in Europe you will want to after reading this book. If you dont follow Chelsea you will warm to the humanistic way all the characters, and they are all real believe me, are brought to life by Mark's fluid and expressive style of writing. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars a true blue gloriously unpredictable thriller ... excellent, 16 May 2007
Well written, funny, honest and fast paced. Blue Murder 'Chelsea till I die' had me laughing and crying (i'm a girl) in equal parts. All that punk nostalgia is so well represented here, and what followed. The Chelsea stuff is superb. Johnny Nipper was a part of something. The Pistols at the 100 Club, watching the Chels lose 6-0 away at Rotherham, Billys and the Blitz Club, Ibiza. The boys in blue ... division two, that mad Easter weekend when we got hammered by West Ham and QPR. When Wise went up to lift the FA Cup and of course winning the title at Bolton. This book packs a hell of a punch, it has everything. 100% recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars blue heaven, 29 Jan 2006
Of the current crop of books about Chelsea, I have to say that this little gem is the best that I have read. It is a witty and charming first hand account of following the club in Europe during the free spending first year of Roman's ownership.As a travelogue,it is superb. Mark is able to transport you from the dimly lit lapdancing clubs of Prague to the majestic history of Ancient Rome via the terraces with some degree of literary flair. It is the humour though that kept me turning the pages. If you are a true Chelsea fan, you will be able to identify with everything this book stands for. That 'glorious unpredictability' thing. Superb.
