5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read for every City fan, old or new!, 28 Mar 2010
This review is from: Best Job in the World: From the Football Specials to the Press Box (Paperback)
From the very start my attention was captured with the trip to the Faroes - even a mention for our intrepid "Trawler Twelve" and Scall's subsequent extended stay. As I read, Ian took me with him reliving matches of that season 2008/9, as well as sharing his working perspective of them.

I loved the style of this - no long, dry reading - a nice easy game by game account of a season, interspersed with amusing anecdotes from the world of football and insights into Ian's personal and working life. Whilst mostly about our beloved Manchester City, there are also Oldham, Stockport, Wigan, Bury, Rochdale and more matches, demonstrating Ian's genuine love of the beautiful game.

I have heard Ian talk at one of our supporters meetings and he was relaxed, engaging, and passionate about football and City. He loves it and you get the feeling that his work (paid or voluntary alike) is a pleasure rather than work. His whole being radiates the fact that he really believes he does have the best job in the world and after reading the book I can't argue - he does! And he deserves it too.

This book is an absolute MUST read for City fans everywhere - and if you aren't one yourself but happen to know one - it's a perfect present for that long suffering Blue in your life.

Even for comparitively new Blues, this is highly recommended reading - do yourself a favour and buy this book. Today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brought back so many City memories!, 17 Feb 2010
By 
This review is from: Best Job in the World: From the Football Specials to the Press Box (Paperback)
This is a great read for obsessed football fans, especially City fans. Cheeseman's love of the game, his club and his desire to be a football commentator is genuine and inspiring (from someone who grew up wanting to be City's first female commentator). After being exiled in Melbourne for the last 6 years the book really brought back fond Manchester City memories (some good and some not so good!. Thanks Cheeseman!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential read for all football fans, 21 Oct 2009
This review is from: Best Job in the World: From the Football Specials to the Press Box (Paperback)
Excellent read for all football fans!
Easy to read a little at a time, but I couldn't put it down.
Fascinating biography of BBC reporter Ian Cheeseman and his passion for football, in particular Manchester City.
Really enjoyed the trip to the Faroe Isles.
