4.0 out of 5 stars amazing? sad? amazingly sad? interesting? FANATICAL!, 26 Aug. 2001
This book is just my sort of thing, he reviews each stadium in depth, gives a breif history of the club, their current plight & tells amazing fact throughout. This book started as an excellent read & got better telling of things you can't imagine. But then why only 4 stars, well the things mentioned above are all the things in a book about football I'd ever want but there are but two gripes which I have, 1 is that those factually nuggets as good as they maybe, most of them are repeated increasingly throughout the book, the story of lincoln being relegated due to a dog bitting a players leg in torquay is in there 2 maybe 3 times within about 20 pages! & I think that whilst some clubs have amazingly in depth reports & summaries, others (mainly ones further along in the book) are very brief, some as short as a single page, although I suppose after writing about 80 match & ground summaries it would become slightly tiresome! I would definately recommend this book, it is a must read for any big football fan & interesting even if your not. Great book, great read, even better though if you have a very short memory!

5.0 out of 5 stars King of the groundhoppers, 26 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
Travelling regularly to Stafford from London, Ken Ferris began to notice Wolves' and Birmingham's football grounds from the train window. Being, as the title says, a football fanatic, this eventually gave Ken the idea of doing the 92. That in itself is every groundhopper's dream - but then Ken thought : why not take it a step further and do it in record time? And so began his incredible odyssey, watching 93 football matches (for the record to count, much to his chagrin, he had to include Berwick Rangers) in eight months, often taking in five games in a week and, more than once, two in a day. Ken's travelogue makes a great read for any lover of football, packed with information on the clubs and their grounds, humorous anecdotes, and a host of wonderful characters - players, directors and fans - whom he met along the way. The book is also a snapshot of football in 1994/5 - that season of sleaze, bungs and Cantona's kung fu kick. Several clubs have moved grounds since then; Football Fanatic is a worthy memorial to the now-departed 'theatres of dreams'. One for all football fanatics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Football Fanatic, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Top marks to Ken Ferris on producing this great title on Kindle. I originally bought it in paperback, and was only too glad to add to my digital collection. The great value of this book is that many of the great grounds Ken visits and describes are now gone. Highly recommended read for every footy fan.
