Behind the Curtain: Travels in Football in Eastern Europe
Behind the Curtain: Travels in Football in Eastern Europe
"Excellent book on the game in Eastern Europe since the fall of communism. The chapters on the former Yugoslavia are particularly excellent."

Ajax, The Dutch, The War: Football in Europe During the Second World War
Ajax, The Dutch, The War: Football in Europe During the Second World War
"Kuper bases this book around Nazi occupation of Holland during WWII, focusing on many aspects of Dutch football to be affected by the war and the removal of Jews from sporting clubs."

El Diego: The Autobiography of the World's Greatest Footballer
El Diego: The Autobiography of the World's Greatest Footballer
"Maradona puts his view of his career into print for the first time. Interesting but after finishing it feels like you have just listened to a very long rant!"
The Hand of God: The Life of Diego Maradona
The Hand of God: The Life of Diego Maradona
"Superb book by Jimmy Burns. Tells the real story of Maradona and some of it is not pretty."
Ajax, Barcelona, Cruyff
Ajax, Barcelona, Cruyff
"A collection of interviews with Cruyff over his playing & managerial career. Interesting, although Cruyff comes over arrogant sometimes."
Football Against The Enemy
Football Against The Enemy
"Simon Kuper's award winning classic. Shows that football & politics go together no matter what is said otherwise. The chapter on Celtic & Rangers is very dated in my opinion and also a little naive."
