There isn't much arsenal related content, I'd guess maybe 20%.
I enjoyed his rivalries with other players. Some of it is funny what he says about them, other funny parts are of when he speaks to his wife on there phone and tells her that he doesn't have time to talk about trivial stuff like his child's upbringing lol
But I found this almost unreadable, and can only assume it's because of the translation. It's like everything has been translated literally, nothing entirely makes sense.
Here's a section I've turned to at random: "By now, our team had grown and established itself to such an extent that we were able to shape a match against even the best team in the world in a balanced manner" - I don't know what this really means. Well, I get the idea but ultimately it doesn't actually say anything. The whole book is like this. Even the title seems odd. "The madness is on the pitch". What does it mean? Does it mean "Madness on the pitch!" or "the madness is ONLY on the pitch", or something else? I don't know. Feels like a missed opportunity.
