    1. I had an earlier edition of the book bought around 2000 , but I was told that later editions have new and current entries, so I re read it abouth 15 years later Although I like the book and the stories, reading it now, some of the entries seem rather thin with very little added to the basic information about the match in question.

    2. I received this for Xmas as a stocking filler and it s pretty good Some of the stories were interesting but others were just statistics drawn out into anecdotes when the reality is they just weren t that impressive I preferred the historical context fake games to fool luftwaffe pilots for example and perhaps reducing the highest scoring games to maybe a single entry with a list For example, a simple Stirling won 20 0 on this date would sufficerather than a 3 page description of their season bef [...]

    3. I read this some time ago and forgot to review it properly at the time for some reason Containing, as it does, around 100 accounts of strange foot all matches, each of which is only a page or too in length, I found this a book better suited to dipping into at odd moments than for sitting down to read at length I found it mildly amusing and engaging at the time although glancing at the contents page now I struggle to recall much of the detail of any of the matches recounted.

    4. An excellent Christmas present that took ages to read right through but ideal for flicking through occasionally
