5.0 out of 5 stars Spot On, 7 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I live in London but lived for a year in Argentina and my misses is Argentine - I really enjoyed the book it was an interesting and fun read - not only was it full of great anecdotes on the matches between Arg and Eng by those involved - but it also gave some really interesting insights on social and football history. I particularly enjoyed the observations of Argentinian life many of which made me laugh - the writer got some observations spot on and told them in an entertaining style - I think required reading not only for football fans but for anyone going to visit Argentina and wanting to understand how it ticks.

A thoroughly enjoyable book, some excellent interview and anecdotes structured round each of the matches in which England and Argetina have met. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good memories, 11 Jun 2012

This review is from: Animals!: Argentina Versus England (Kindle Edition)
An engaging, memory-provoking journey through some great games. Grudge matches and rivalries and bitterness are part of what makes football such a brilliant sport, and England v Argentina has always been engrossing down the years. A good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable, 14 Aug 2011
Most enjoyable, the book gave a good historical account of events surrounding each game and the reasons for the behaviour being displayed by both teams. Whilst being English but supporting Argentina I now can argue that cheating is not only an Argentine issue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining indeed, 11 Oct 2010

I didn't think I was going to find this book interesting. "Forty years of hurt" watching England has really taken its toll. But this book tells you so much more than a Wisden version of recording football matches. It's really insightful about what goes on behind the scenes and in everyday football-connected life in Argentina. Very funny too, particularly the beginning. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book despite the errors, 24 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Animals!: Argentina Versus England (Kindle Edition)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it would have got 5 stars but for the proof-reader who should give their fee back to the author - it's littered with spelling errors and the member of Spinal Tap with the South American moustache is the bass player, not lead guitarist (you'll see what I mean). Buy and read this book anyway, it will throw new light on the age-old rivalry. Even though I'm Welsh, I shall be egg-ing England on to the next WC in the hope that we'll get to see a new instalment of this fascinating fixture.
