Customer Review

on 20 August 2007
Every football fan has an opinion about Graham Poll, and none of them favourable! But this book introduces a very different man from the one we thought we knew when he was the country's top referee.
He is funny, self-deprecating and very human. Well, he is in this book.
Of course it tells the story of his infamous three-card trick at the World Cup, but builds up to it in such a way that, when it happens, the reader can understand what a devastating blow it was for Poll.
So this is not only a football book. It is a story about striving to achieve something and then having to deal with humiliating failure.
But of course it is a football book as well, and gives revealing glimpses behind the scenes fo the game.
Chelsea supporters should definitely read it. They might think very differently about their captain and manager.
