This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
A person who is both utterly jaded by the cliches of American culture and completely naive of and a bit reverential toward culture in the UK.
How could the performance have been better?
Not have the reader add a juvenile brat quality to the bitter views of the author.
Any additional comments?
As an American and a long time fan of English football i failed to gain further insight into uk fb or to be entertained. i have English and Scottish friends that would be the first to highlight that sports corruption in the UK is every bit as rampant as it is in the US however the author spends a line every paragraph, a full quarter of the book puking on everything American as greedy, backwards, mean-spirited and imbecilic while extolling all things English as ingenious, thoughtful, pure, efficient and noble. The man is dour and angry at his former country i love the uk and us but really I can't listen to this without feeling this old alcoholic sports writer's 40 failed years in America as they sour every one of his genuine ex-pat discoveries. I fail to see the entertainment value in his out dated cliches about America and i am glad that portsmouth fc is still a fourth rate club. LIVERPOOL FC FOREVER!

Sports analysis that goes far beyond the pitch. Makes belligerent fandom a little less belligerent.
