5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 5 Sep 2013
One of the best football book I've read. I couldn't put it down.

I thought I knew a bit about scouting, turns out I was wrong. Calvin does a fantastic job of delving into the scouting world, revealing the pressures, uncertainty & rewards that go with the job.

Highly recommended.

I've read Mike's previous book Family: Life, Death & Football & absolutely loved it so bought this without a moments hesitation &, again, I wasn't disappointed.

It was fantastic to see the 'other side' of some top footballing journalists & nice to know that, actually, they're just as passionate as normal fans. The cult hero chapters on Ted McMinn & Rodney McAree were my favourites & Adrian Clarke's story about his last season at Arsenal nearly reduced me to tears!
