This review is from: The Insider's Guide to Match-Fixing in Football (Kindle Edition)
As I sit here writing this review, we're within 24 hours of the Telegraph revealing details of match-fixing within the UK. Those who are unaware might be in utter shock or disbelief, corruption is gone from UK football, right?
While I cannot talk about that specifically, I can certainly talk about this book, which I read a few weeks prior to the story breaking. This book is a water-tight piece of research, sometimes detrimentally so (as I'd love to hear Declan's personal insight into the subject). While that makes it dry and very academic, it's an astonishing piece of research, that I recommend any football fan read. It's a topic that is far more widespread that 99.99% of the football population would like to admit (whether that's ignorance or otherwise). This book will give you a great grounding in the subject.
