As a fan Of football and more specifically Italian Football, on seeing this book I decided to but it, and what a read. From the moment the season begins it is one rollercoaster ride of a game after another, well written and brilliantly funny Tim Parks makes a seemingly un-glamourous football team into a group of players you actually care about. It is however the fans stories that are the most interesting and it is these that really make the book. The passion that these fans show for Hellas Verona is incredible. I have certainly become a fan of the best team in Verona and indeed of the writer Tim Parks.
