5.0 out of 5 stars True stars, 17 Oct 2002
This review is from: Stamping Grounds: Exploring Liechtenstein and its World Cup Dream: Liechtenstein's World Cup Odyssey (Paperback)
After reading about the (rare) highs and (frequent) lows of the Liechstenstein I am left in the position that I can only hope my own national side never faces them, as I would struggle to decide which side to support. Connelly writes and portrays the players and country in such a light that you can't help but to fall in love with this tiny nation. No longer am I ignorant of the talents of Martin Telser, or the potential of Peter Jehle, or indeed who the identy of the greatest journalist in the world is.
The book is truly laugh a minute, but while Connelly could have taken an easy route out and simply unfairly ridiculed the country and their team, he seems genuinly smitten by the country and there are more laughs at his own expense than at Liechstenstien.
If you are looking to rediscover football than look no further than this book. There are few books that I've taken more pleasure from reading than this.
