Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like most fans of football from the English speaking and sky sports influenced world, I take an above average interest in English football. I have my English team to support (Liverpool) and with that, the consequent list of teams to hate. It is a wonderfully fulfilling if entirely vicarious relationship.

Unfortunately, one cannot invest so much time and emotional energy in a league without sparing some attention to that league's national team. Thus one becomes, no matter one's nationality, fascinated by the continual failure of England, the home of football, to make any kind of credible assault on European or World titles. It can be a source of great mirth to anyone of a more Celtic, Teutonic, Latin or Frankish demeanour.

Stubbs manages to not only turn that humour on its head, by mining English failure for levels of humour, no Celt could ever hope to manage about the Ould Enemy, but he then uses that humour to highlight why England continues to fail i.e. an arrogant inability to realise that football has moved on, but England has not.

If all that means nothing to you, this book will still provide you with belly laugh after belly laugh.

Along with the Wing Commander, Inappropriate Championship Manager and Self-righteous Scouser provide a pant wettingly funny take on English football. Funny even if you're not a football fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only the English 8 Sept. 2010
By Rory Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An Awesome book that only the English could write. Only the English could create a great look at their team, only to have the ending we all know happened at the World Cup.

But knowing how the World Cup turned out for the English doesn't take away from the book, if anything, it adds to the supreme enjoyment the non-English fan will get from reading the book. It might even help explain why the English fan turned on Capelo so much after the world cup.

A fantastic look at international soccer with a new, sharp eye for details that would otherwise go unseen.
