fascinating but depressing,

This review is from: The Beautiful Game? (Paperback)I found this book fascinating but mightily depressing at the same time. All the usual issues are covered here -- overblown wages in the premier league, chairmen ripping off their clubs, the FA suits' indifference for the health of the real game, the devotion of the fans in the smaller clubs such as York City, Bury and AFC Wimbledon, the atrocities that were Valley Parade and Hillsborough and the incompetence of many of those (in)directly responsible. If you love football you simply have to read this.
