    This book is genius, and I wish I had written it More pace than Gareth Bale on the wing, and almost as skilfully constructed The author is obliged to take some gambles with the names of those who will feature in football s future between now and 2022and with only one exception overtaken by real life events of equal farce I reckon he s guessing correctly Anywa

    I was having a conversation with a couple of friends recently about books, and one of them asked me to recommend something light and funny To my surprise, I found that I really couldn t it s been such a long time since I read something like that and enjoyed it The last time I attempted something along those lines, I ended up reading Nick Spalding s Fat Chance,

    This was fun, funny, and slight Some good tropes on being a fan, and some funny daft observations on British football, especially in the set up I don t think the Carlton Palmer references might give this universal appeal I think, though John O F could have been a little braver with the plot, and perhaps makeof a Hornby impact.
