Premier League: A History in 10 Matches
Format: Kindle Edition|Change

on 18 August 2014
The title of this book really undersells it's content. This is so much more than a report of the 10 matches mentioned in the title. The author uses these matches as a device for explaining some of the more interesting developments in football at the highest domestic level. It gives a great insight into the ups and downs, both on and off the pitch, of teams at both ends of the spectrum of success. It's written with great humour too, having me chuckling more than once. Highly recommended.

Reasonably enjoyable, but does go off on tangents rather than talking about the fotball.

I started reading and very quickly got addicted and sucked back in time. I grew up with the premier league and while I don't remember football much before I can certainly appreciate how much it has evolved over the years. The commentary in this book is excellent and I like Jim's approach to relaying these stories again. The attention to the wider picture of what those games meant or what they represent is excellent. Football is more than kicking a ball around pitch for 90mins; these stories are about the people behind the clubs, the fans, the players and how society grew to love football again. I only wish I don't have to wait 20 years for the second instalment.

A top journalist and writer, this is another winning book from Jim White (not the Deadline Day one!) Like Jonathan Wilson with more jokes, but no less brilliance, this is a great addition to the canon of books on the BEST LEAGUE IN THE WORLD.

Well written and as described in the foreward,some games that you'd not really have expected there.If you have followed the league a bit since it started then worth the effort to read.At 51p I couldn't go wrong.

White captures the mood & era brilliantly around each game, but his all time best 11?
Czech & not Schmeichel, Gerrard instead of Keane? Don't think so jim!
