4.0 out of 5 stars Top class, 16 April 2013
Makes you feel like you belong. There are many tribes in life; I have always felt bad that mine appeared to be one which sat apparently pointlessly staring at lists of numbers for hours on end.

Now however I feel vindicated and uplifted. I may even try to get my girlfriend to read it.
Behind the Curtain: Football in Eastern Europe by Jonathan Wilson
Although published some time ago now, and in football a few years can seem like decades in other ways of life, Wilson's research and the stories within still retain interest. In fact, given the years since the publication of the book, the vignettes have become all the more interesting for what we know follows.

This work also feels like it will soon be ripe for an update, especially on Russian football which has experienced several upheavals of late, i.e. racism and hooliganism etc.
