This review is from: Why England Lose: And other curious phenomena explained (Hardcover)
The combination of data-analysis and great sports writing makes this book really enjoyable. The authors clearly love football and love the numbers too. I really enjoyed the analysis of managerial myths: why transfer spending is usually wasted, why football clubs are often irrational, why Brian Clough is the only manager who ever made a serious difference to footballing performance. If you like football, highly recommended.

How strange. I wonder why EconoCritic only ever gives 5-star reviews?

I wonder why you ended that sentence with a question mark; it was not a question.

"I wonder why...?" And that's not a question?

Andrew Howe is being inexplicably pedantic, but "I wonder why..?" is indeed not a question. Not that it matters at all. God why did I reply to this. Excuse me while I go kill myself.

He probably gives 5 stars to everything because he chooses wisely.

C. Gilgallon is totally correct and his/her final comments are the funniest things I've read on the internet in ages.
