Just because it's FA Cup season

If you have kids, and they're into football, buy this book.

Or, indeed, its sequel.

It's by a friend of mine who's really some massive stats computing science boffin but hides it well under an exterior of football fandom, bad puns and a penchant for drinking red wine on a Sunday afternoon.

I gave a copy to my little brothers and they loved it.

Plug over and out.

I feel compelled to agree. This book had me gripped from the first page. I laughed until I cried, then cried until I laughed. It's nothing less than a tour de force, a rip-roaring rollercoaster of a - erm - interactive novella, where real people play out real lives against a backdrop of joy, misery and mostly unconvincing low-league football. Call me for your signed copy now before we take them to the recycling centre.

Hey I hate to criticise a published writer on a grammatical point but shouldn't that be
"an - erm - interactive novella"?

Tom said...

Shouldn't that be 'I love to criticise'?

Damn it, you're right!
