THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

10 March ~ The book reviews from the March issue of WSC are now online. When George Came To Edinburgh is a "neither judgemental nor glorifying" account of George Best's time at Hibernian. These tales of bad behaviour include turning up drunk for a game against Morton and being offered the compromise of getting stripped but sitting on the subs' bench. Best responds with: "I could try to sit on the bench… but I might fall off." There's also an admirable but flawed history of Malaga Football Club or Lee Trundle's surprisingly good autobiography which is "really not half bad". Derby fans may go through mixed emotions reading an "evocative portrait" of the club's record breaking 2007-08 season – Bad Worse Worst.
