This review is from: Superclasico: Inside the Ultimate Derby (90 Minutes Shorts Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A quick, easy and niftily constructed read that skips the minutiae and insider-y jargon that weigh down many football books and gets you straight to the heart and soul of one of football's most storied rivalries: Boca Juniors vs River Plate.
Richards clearly knows his stuff and has immersed himself in the often seamy world of Argentine football so that we don't have to. Refreshingly he doesn't obsess over Diego Maradona (who, Richards reminds us, only played one season for Boca in his prime), but dwells instead on local legends like the enigmatic Juan Román Riquelme and the "traitorous" Oscar Ruggeri, who committed the ultimate crime of switching from Boca to River.
Worth 90 minutes of anyone's time and by the end you'll be wishing for extra time.
