THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

20 September ~ The book reviews from WSC 295 are online now. Tony Curran dissects Paul Lake's autobiography I'm Not Really Here and finds a man betrayed by the football club he loved. Although Lake's book is aimed at Manchester City fans, his story of how his boyhood dreams came true before his career and life were shattered by injury will interest most readers. If you're a collector you might enjoy 32 Programmes by Dave Roberts. Simon Kuper's new book The Football Men profiles over 60 of the game's most important characters, but "all too frequently leaves him looking too clever by half". Finally, John Burridge's autobiography Budgie tells the story of his astonishing 29-club career.
