It addresses the game through the eyes of ordinary supporters. If you want to glory in the whims and fancies of 20-year-old millionaires - or the sanitised accounts of the rise and rise of clubs funded by oil-billionaires or leveraged buy outs -then this isnt for you. However, if you want to understand why the Jambos break their fans hearts - or what it means to downsize your Uniteds - or how this game can shape and mirror lives- then youre in the right bit of the sport section. A book that is truly of the fans, for the fans and, most importantly, by the fans.
