The author addresses the links with Franco, the so-called favouritism shown by referees, and the club's relationship with Barcelona. As expected the pro Franco, dodgy referees, and the goody goody Barcelona image is questioned, and a more balanced opinion results.
As well as the politics surrounding the club the author highlights the various brilliant players who have played for the club including Di Stefano, Puskas, Gento, Kopa, Amancio, Butragueno, Sanchez, Hierro, Roberto Carlos, Figo, Zidane, Laudrup, Beckham and so it goes on and on.
This an excellent book about a fabulous club, and to think that Catalans started it all.
