5.0 out of 5 stars A proper football book, 12 Jun. 2012
By 
This review is from: Richer Than God: Manchester City, Modern Football and Growing Up (Hardcover)
I've always admired David Conn's writing in the Guardian, and didn't realise he was a lifelong Manchester City supporter. I don't follow Man. C but this is still a brilliant book, with Conn walking a fine balance between passionate fan and dispassionate journalist. The result is one of the best books I've read about a football club and what it means to be a football fan, at least since Fever Pitch (and I don't follow Arsenal either). If your Dad took you to football matches you should read this as a reminder of a lost world, and if you take your son to matches now it will make you think about how much the experience has changed in the last 30 years. This is a book which tugs at your heart strings whilst making you think how a sport has eaten away at itself to the detriment of its fans.
