5.0 out of 5 stars Everything about penalties: stomach-churning to historic, 30 May 2000
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: On Penalties (Yellow Jersey Shorts) (Hardcover)
Even women who profess to hate football often love penalty shoot-outs, according to one recent article. In this brilliantly insightful, honest, polemic and very, very funny book, Andrew Anthony dissects the penalty shoot-out as never before. Such an exercise could have turned out dry and worthy - or, worse still, mawkish and sentimental - but this book is neither. It is compelling from cover to cover.
Needless to say, certain characters from the England Hall of Shame crop up a fair bit, but the author puts his money where his mouth is, finishing by shooting ten penalties at England's most successful penalty-saving keeper, Mark Crossley of Nottingham Forest.
This is that rarest of football books - a genuine gem! You'll read it in one go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and well-written study, 7 Sep 2001

This review is from: On Penalties (Paperback)
I would have read this short book in one sitting, only somebody else needed to use the bathroom before I'd quite finished. This is an absolutely absorbing book, clever, insightful and observant, and no football fan should be without it.
