Great fun and a perfect way to remember the season,
This review is from: Ode to Jol: A Spurs Fan's Diary (Paperback)
While I enjoy football books in general, I often steer clear of fan-written ones. However, being a Spurs fan and having read a good review in the Observer's sports section, I decided to give this a go. I'm glad I did.
What Gold managed to do was to keep a sense of humour through a season which had plenty of twists and turns. Every time he was delirious or in despair he wrote everything down. Perhaps it was therapeutic.
Like many good writers, Gold paints his own vivid version of events and I can't remember the last time I chuckled so much at a football book.
Great fun and with pages of action photos throughout, I'll always be able to remember a very entertaining season.
