5.0 out of 5 stars When a 1-0 loss is a great result, 8 Jan. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bromley Boys: The True Story of Supporting the Worst Football Team in Britain (Paperback)
This is a really enjoyable book in which Dave Roberts intertwines his memories of a spectacularly unsuccessful Bromley season with the growing pains of a teenage boy, first seemingly sent to a public school to better himself and then quickly 'expelled' partly through his Bromley allegiance. The book has a match by match structure, and with the false dawn of 3 earlish season wins, you wonder why the season is labelled as being so bad. A relentless loss after loss after loss from then onwards, with Bromley's few fans looking for any slight crumb of comfort justifies the title. There are many great anecdotes and stories on the way, with the author finally realising his dreams by helping out in the Bromley Supporters' Club and getting a lift in his hero Alan Stonebridge's car. Why don't Waterstones stock books like this?
