4.0 out of 5 stars Football rivalries around the world, 13 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Mad for it: From Blackpool to Barcelona: Football's Greatest Rivalries (Hardcover)
As a football fan I was intrigued to read this book. It looks at football derbies from around the globe. Each chapter is devoted to a football rivalry from one particular city or even country. It looks at the fans ,their views,the history and gives us a glimpse of the cities themselves. It takes us to less obvious places such as Tel Aviv, Torshaven(The Faroe Islands), and Calcutta. Indeed for this reader it was these stories on the"lesser lights of football" that stood out. Most of the chapters are written by different authors and so I felt the quality of work did vary. The chapter on Millwall V West ham was over the top due to the continued use of expletives used to convey this particular footballing rivalry. Also it did seem odd that Andy Mitten who wrote a number of chapters was the only writer credited. Nevertheless this is an highly enjoyable read for all true football fans.
