Excellent book and interesting throughout,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Behind the Curtain: Football in Eastern Europe: Travels in Eastern European Football (Paperback)
The author has clearly spent a lot of time in Eastern Europe and writes in a honest fashion throughout. Despite an obvious fondness of Eastern Europe he does not sugar-coat events that have gone on there and I love the way he mixes the sport and politics in concise fashion.
I grew up as a teenager in the 1980s and I always found it that bit more exciting when a British team was playing in the unknown of Eastern Europe. It had a special mystery about it for obvious reasons.
If I was to be critical, the author sometimes throws individual's names in from nowhere and it can sometimes be hard to follow particularly as many of the names sound the same and I would have liked to have read about Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania but these are minor issues.
I would love to see an updated version over the past ten years but for the time being I can highly recommend this book.
