5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB, JUST BRILLIANT, 11 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pay As You Play: The True Price of Success in the Premier League Era (Paperback)
Pay As You Play is just a superb book and a brilliant read. Once you start, it's very hard to put the book down and it is so well researched that you feel like thanking the author personally (I did find a few errors/slips if the author wants to get in touch!).
For me the best section was the club by club analysis of all 43 teams that have graced the Premiership, especially the "Best" and "Worst" buys during the Premiership years. As a Spurs fan, who could disagree with our worst 8 million going on Helda Postiga (who?) and the 2.1 million plus whatever went in Cloughie's brown envelope on the motorway for Teddy Sheringham.
The author will have to update the book, as Gareth Bale is already edging into Sheringham territory. Let's hope that we get updates fairly regularly; reading the book was like hearing a superb debut album by a new band, you can't wait for the sophomore effort hitting the racks.
My only beef is that I have been seriously annoying my friends by quoting whole sections of the book to them. All I needed to say was "Go out and buy this book, it's the best read ever".
