I liked and hated this book in equal measure I liked it because it s a well written expose on the mismanagement, duplicity, foolishness and out right corruption of how badly football and it s individual clubs are governed But having my cynical worst fears confirmed was saddening and made my blood boil.This book is a must for any true footie fan. An outstanding, thought provoking study of the state of modern professional football It had some slow parts, and went over a lot of what I read in Broken Dreams about how the Premier League is ruining football in England I liked when he went into depth on a few clubs and how they were either ripped off by a rich jerk or run well. I didn t truly understand the incompetence of the game s governing bodies, the greed of the clubs shareholders, orencouragingly, the love and sheer bloody mindedness of football supporters up and down the country until I had read this book. a must read for any football fan.
