Up there with Porridge, The Young Ones, Blackadder and I'm Alan Partridge in the pantheon of British comedy......and I don't say that lightly.

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT ORANGE? BRILLIANT BOOK, 30 Oct. 2001
This is quite simply one of the finest football books written in years. The first indepth study of football in Holland and the pecularities and style of that football so quintessentially Dutch. Winner examines the finer points of Dutch football (without being side-tracked by the Ajax Academy) and what makes Dutch football so different, so unique, by examining it in its historical and social context as well as its sporting context. Ajax, Johan Cruyff, Rinus Michels, the heartbreak of the 1974 World Cup Final, the Dutch football mentality and the Dutch national team's record at taking penalties (which, incredibly, is worse than England's) are all examined thoroughly yet succinctly. The interviews with Johnny Rep, Ruud Krol and Dennis Bergkamp top off a fascinating book that is very rereadable.
