Simply the best sports book ever written, because it doesn't really discuss what happens on the field. No, it asks a deeper question: Why do so many people care so much about a team of rich men who play a boys' game? Why do we put such value on sports teams? It's a gripping tale of obsession — and the need to belong. Fantastic. Oh, and it's about Arsenal, too. That makes it even better.
Made obsession acceptable
Lots of laughs, lots of soul searching and a great deal of irrational fanaticism. An insight into what makes some people tick.
i love this book (even if i'm not really an arsenal fan). well-written by a clearly obsessive fan, its apologies for being so in the text were not needed, really. it's hilarious, well-knowing and overall a good, fun read.
