Product Description

About the Author

Tim Hanlon is based in Barcelona and has been covering Spanish football for the national news agency in the UK, the Press Association, and other British media on a freelance basis, for the past seven years. Tim is an NCTJ trained journalist and worked for agencies and newspapers in the North West of England, including the Manchester Evening News, before moving to Spain. As the only British reporter to regularly cover training practices and speak to players, Tim has been in the ideal position to write about the dramatic events as they have unfolded at the Barcelona club, as well as through living in Spain to understand what Barça means to the Catalan people.

Format: Paperback
It couldn't be any more straight forward. If you love your football then this book is most definitely 'world-class'..! A great read and a great excuse to escape the daily grind and frequent monotony of the English Premier League. Would recommend it to all football aficionados everywhere. Found it really hard to put down. Hope the author brings out further literature in the future. Golazo!!!

An enjoyable and balanced account which thankfully is not ruined by over the top praise and sticks to the facts. The book itself focuses mainly on the era of Laporta and runs into the beginning of the Rosell takeover. The book is superior to a more recent book by Graham Hunter because Tim Hanlon does not write this from a fan's perspective which Hunter did. Thus the book is much more enjoyable and far less opinionated, facts and history come before over the top praise.

I received this book for my birthday, and immediately set reading it. I read half of it before going to bed, and the other half when I got up in the morning. A fascinating story well told. The author has an eye for the characters and culture surrounding FC Barcelona, explodes a few myths and has secured some important quotes from insiders. I hope this is only volume 1!

Excellent history of barcelona warts and all covering th he Laporta years. Rosell is following a hard act.
Read this book while at dentists, doctors, hospitals, police stations or prison; it will take your mind off any impending situations.
