    Firstly, I must thank my late friend, Colin, who gave me this book as a birthday present, even though he was a Chelsea fan to his core Would have loved to discuss some of the characters and ideas with him.As an Arsenal fan, this is probably required reading While there are a few references to British culture that went over my head, it is well written, informative and entertaining.For non Arsenal fans, I would think that you would have to have a love of the history of soccer

    3,5.Really entertaining and feels like it covers a lot of stuff The language is pretty laidback and fun, but it does jump around quite a bit which is confusing at times.

    Great read for any Gooner indeed, equally so, for anyone who wants ammunition to hate the Arsenal any Written in a lively style, it covers the drunks, hard men and dodgy geezers who have graced the team over its history Of course, a lot in it seems rather quaint now with players being able to play with hangovers, compared to the body toned players of now That said, I wonder why in these almost non contact days, we have so many injuries The financial shenanigans also look small scale against the news this week of 5.1 billion being paid for TV rights for the premiership Not that we should go too gooey eyed over pre premiership footie not with the violence and the racism back then But as someone said, it s a funny old game, and you can t help enjoying the stories of some of the characters who have graced the green grass of North London.

    I always assumed Arsenal was this classy, traditional high end club that was made up of polite, smart people Uhhh, so I guess this book was made for dumbasses like me What a history, and than anything, what a brilliant chronicler Jon Spurling is His talent at writing sketches of people who you have never seen play or met slowly creeps up on you I gifted this to my boyfriend who s a rabid gunner, and even he enjoyed the history of the rebels misfits oddballs in the club who made it the great club it is, so I think it tickles every type of fan s tailfeathers Wilf Copping, whattay.

    Really enjoyable read It s easy to talk about the Arsenal way that has been around since Wenger arrived free flowing, attacking football but we shouldn t forget the club s history from before the Wenger days Spurling picks out an intriguing cast of characters to represent each era of the club since the Woolwich days.
