Funniest sports book I've ever read
on 29 September 2010
I'm a big fan of John's Football365 columns and so was looking forward to reading this because I've never read a writer like him. I was not disappointed because We Ate All The Pies is hilarious. John's views on football make for wonderful reading. He has a way of telling stories about himself, his life, football teams, whatever, which make you feel like you're sitting in a pub being told them by the funniest, maddest guy you've ever met, who also happens to be very clever and brilliant with words. This book is just so much fun and I loved it. I'd even describe it as unputdownable - when I finished one chapter and saw what the subject of the next one was, I couldn't wait to read it and find out what John had to say about that. And I've just seen it's been nominated for the William Hill Sports Book of The Year award - very well deserved for a book that will make you smile and laugh and then want to go back to the start and read it again.
