4.0 out of 5 stars Undoubtably one of the best in its genre., 9 April 2001
This review is from: Staying Up: A Fan Behing the Scenes in the Premiership (Hardcover)
"Staying Up" offers an interesting look at the goings on inside a football club, and satisfies the most fanatical supporter's morbid obsession with everything that takes place behind the scenes: transfer rumours, contract negotiations, unhappy reserves etc.
While it took the author a long time to succeed in gaining the trust of those inside the club (in some cases he never did this) he did at least manage to give us an insight into what separates a professional sportsman from those in the general workforce. Furthermore, he exposed the distinct lack of trust that those working within the club have for what they would call "outsiders."
It's rather hasty to compare this book with Fever Pitch, which was more of an account of the author's life while being a football supporter- relating major events in his life with the football matches he went to see at the time.
An intriguing read and I highly recommend it to anybody with an interest in the sport.
