This review is from: Pay As You Play: The True Price of Success in the Premier League Era (Paperback)
Pay As You Play is simply the best football book that I have ever read. The detail with which Paul Tomkins,Graeme Riley and Gary Fulcher delve into is amazing. This is the kind of analysis that football fans need to be hearing about and reading, instead of listening to lazy cliched analysis from the various football pundits regularly seen on our TV screens. The book itself shows a clear correlation between spending and success since the inception of the Premier League, and how the gap between the bigger and smaller clubs has widened considerably in recent times. Various perceptions that people have about managers are dispelled in relation to their records/spend etc. Overall, a great read, and a book that should be on the shopping list of every football fan around the world this Christmas!!!
