5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic insight by an unknwon man, 28 Aug. 2012
For a work born of a newspaper column and knocked together in the middle of 2012, this is a very fine book. His prose is classy, engaging and fruitful. He shines a light on a variety of issues in the modern game, and is frank about himself, where he has come from, and what he thinks. I reckon that some of the anecdotes are told to put us off the trail, like " a friend of mine who used to play with Leeds" but the vast majority accumulate to show up contemporary football for what it is. Professional sport is about money and nobody with a talent for this game would turn down the level of remuneration available to those with the skills and ability to attract it. The section on agents is particularly engaging, as they are just middle men meeting a need for supply and managing demand. All are prone to corruption, and its how a system, sport or game responds that matters. An engaging read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking watch at a great price, 7 Feb. 2012
I ordered this watch after looking around for a long time; at £62 the price was right and the image of the watch suggested it was up my street. It is certainly heavy, and almost on the clunky side, but the movement is good (loses 2-3 seconds a month at most) and the dial/face is clear. The hour and minute hands have reasonable fluorescence, when exposed to daylight on a daily basis. The second hand of the chronograph is in bright yellow and the third dial is a 24 hour clock iwth a sinlge hand.This watch lived up to my expectations and exceeded them once I had worn it for a few hours. It offers great value for those seeking a dark face and bracelet with refined features.
