I am Danny Murphy.................whoops!
Review of I am the Secret Footballer - Anonymous by thedevilinme

Advantages: Good summer read
Disadvantages: Not revalatory enough

So who is the Secret Footballer? Well there are enough clues in the book to confirm he is not black so that cuts it down to 75% of the remaining players and not foreign and so down to the last 40%. He is articulate and intelligent enough to write an engag ... Read review

Ched Evans is not footballs only bad boy...
Review of Football and Gangsters - Graham Johnson by thedevilinme

Advantages: Topical

With convicted rapist Ched Evans in the news right now there is no better time to read this book. What people havenít thought about with footballers accused of rape is whether they were set up by criminals to be blackmailed and, maybe, his refusal to pay ... Read review

Didn't Leave Me In A Spin
Review of Twirlymen: The Unlikely History of Cricket's Greatest Spin Bowlers - Amol Rajan by Soho_Black

Advantages: Impeccable in the level of detail
Disadvantages: Does fail to entertain

Although they may lack the bang and bluster of the fast bowlers, the three leading wicket takers of all time in Test cricket are all spinners. They may look calmer in their run ups and action, but the effect they put on the ball can be incredible. Rathe ... Read review

It Just Is Cricket!
Review of A History of Cricket in 100 Objects - Gavin Mortimer by Soho_Black

Advantages: Interesting and comprehensively researched
Disadvantages: A few slightly tenuous links

...Football in 100 Objects" was a brave attempt, but was slightly let down by being a little too clinical. Being a game imbued with passion, the book lacked this which took some of the edge off it. Cricket, whilst inspiring p ... Read review

Tell us what we already know, why don't you...?
Review of Alex Ferguson My Autobiography by thedevilinme

Advantages: Ok and no more
Disadvantages: Bit dull to be honest

What happens in the dressing room says in the dressing room, so says Sir Alex, his long awaited autobiography not answering many questions about his illustrious career. Fergies approach is more of a memoir of Manchester United here and simply responds to ... Read review

Disappointing and predictable
Review of Managing My Life (My Autobiography) - Alex Ferguson by Tansoodo

Advantages: Easy to read.
Disadvantages: Nothing new, tiresome.

I was expecting so much from this book by Alex Ferguson, a great football manager bordering on legendary status who is quite rightfully admired by those who follow Manchester United. Yet, the early chapters aside where he relays his earlier Scottish roots ... Read review
