THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

The book reviews from WSC 302 are online now. Chris Sutton's autobiography Paradise and Beyond, which features a story about mutilated kittens, is darker than most football memoirs. Sutton does not spare his foes, finding time to criticise Dan Petrescu, Didier Deschamps, Glenn Hoddle, Gordon Strachan, and himself. When You Put on a Red Shirt is a fond recollection of the relationship between Sir Matt Busby and Jimmy Murphy that focuses mainly on the latter's ability to construct balanced football teams. Ronnie Whelan's autobiography, Walk On, sticks to the territory on which the player was most comfortable: the pitch. Finally, We Want Falmer! recounts the tale of how Brighton fans united as a community to build the new Amex stadium. As the reviewer concludes: "Sometimes the people win."
