This book it outside my usual genre although I did have a keen interest in football in the 1990's. I picked it up due to hearing Dan Walker speak about his refusal to work on Sundays as a Christian at a church holiday event I attended. His testimony was powerful-he had been told that he would never get anywhere at the left-wing BBC unless he worked on Sundays but in the end he was promoted above his boss. He now presents Football Focus and a breakfast TV show.

From a spiritual perspective, I was disappointed. This is a book about football which doesn't necessarily need to have a Christian element to it, however, the author should at least make sure that he continues to represent Christian values whatever he is writing about. I found that there was some school boy/toilet humour usually where he has repeated things others have said. I was shocked to see repetitions of blasphemy in a quotation and using the first and last letters of the many swear words leaves little to the imagination.

Some interesting facts and figures but sadly, Walker appears to have let the side down somewhat with this effort..... ( )
