Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Consistently funny, well-informed and provocative. Jonathan Wilson Not since the heady days of Baddiel & Skinner has anyone so passionately, so adroitly, so humorously and so consistently deconstructed the joys of the game. The Ramble has long been one of those if you know, you know types of phenomena, but this book has all the potential to finally push these heroes beyond Di Natale cult status and up to full blown Zidanism. Doc Brown The Ramble is the conversation you'd have with your friends about football. If your friends were witty, dysfunctional obsessives. Kelly Cates, BBC 5Live
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
