    Better than Smyth and Turner s Jumpers for Goalposts, which covers the same ground, and complementary to When Saturday Comes by the eponymous magazine, this book explores the failings of the modern game, its separation from the fanbase, and its excessive commoditization Sport is a business, but it also creates communities and tribes, unfortunately and that latter aspect has been forgotten in the drive formoney.

    Some great anecdotal stuff in this book, and some really well described stories of an era gone by in football The author s clever way with words made this a really entertaining read, even if I didn t understand a few of the references None the less, this book clearly outlines what s wrong with modern football.
