- the paper is too thick and low quality, the 2001-02 edition for example had almost the same number of pages, but with thinner paper and was two thirds the width in size, and took up less space on my bookshelf. Perhaps the hardback should have better quality paper than the paperback, if pricing is a problem with better and thinner paper.
- It would be useful to have a one page league results grid for some of the top European leagues, e.g, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, French, it would only take up 5 pages. The book previously did it for one year I remember in the early 80's. With Sky devoting a new channel to European football, it is time for the book to mirror its increased level of coverage on the box.
- There is still a problem with acknowledging and comparing league achievements in the pre Premier league era with the present, for example Bristol Rovers best season is shown as 4th in Division 2 in 1994-5, which at the time was the third tier, and yet the Rovers have spent 19 seasons in the old second division (second tier), finishing as high as 6th on two occasions, and yet these count for nothing in the eyes of the book. The same problem can be found with other clubs, such as, Millwall for example. The English honours pages do now list previous champions according to the tier they played in at the time, which is progress, but this needs to be now shown elsewhere in the book.
The cricket equivalent, 'Wisden' has got much better in the last 20 years and made many innovations, but the Sky Sports(prev Rothmans) has only made marginal improvements over the same period. Its time to catch up or this annual football book could be in danger of dying in the Internet age.
Not so impressed with the coverage of Leicester City, whose record attendance at the King Power Stadium, contrary to the information given in the book, is 32,188 (vs Real Madrid, 30 July 2011).
Nevertheless, it will prove an invaluable reference guide (and the source of a few quiz questions) in the months ahead.
Minus one star for not being more aerodynamic.
Most of the info seems accurate.
If you want more awesome, try Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys. Stunning.
