Fun enough read in some parts, mildly depressing in some. Lost interest partways through the book, perhaps because I wanted to read about sports, and football, but instead got sob story about losing touch with old friends and midlife weight gain. Also, I wanted to see more detail about the matches, not just "oh yeah Zamora got a hattrick".
I usually have very little patience for free books, the moment i find anything slightly annoying about one, I stop reading because I can afford to and can d Fun enough read in some parts, mildly depressing in some. I usually have very little patience for free books, the moment i find anything slightly annoying about one, I stop reading because I can afford to and can do it without guilt.
But this book held my attention, there were some really good moments, almost Nick Hornby-ish, that more than made up for the boring, depressing bits.

Apr 08, Yong Hoon rated it it was ok Shelves: english. This story was near to my heart, because it's kind of the same experience I had with baseball, and specifically the Oakland A's, last year. To be fair, I didn't start following the A's because they were good, but my story is similar in that I did want to care about something. I wanted to follow a sport and really get into it, having followed football casually for the last two years or so.
Challenging, entertaining, and simply good reads

Anyway, this book is written in diary form, which is interesting because it gives it a sense of tremendous urgency, but causes it to lack introspection and meaning.
Ward is a very entertaining writer, and the book is written in a very conversational manner which makes it accessible and easy to read, even for someone with basically no soccer knowledge, but through it all, I just felt like I wasn't getting much deep analysis. It seemed to me that he was just I felt the book needed to pull back from this one man's life and tell a more universal story. Ward talks for a long time about his friends, his clothes, his relationship with his wife, and other features of his middle-aged life, but it all seems so trivial.

The deeper connections are never made. This may be the point of the book, but I didn't feel that the book was entertaining enough to not be able to pull it all together.

I don't regret reading this book, but it disappointed me, because I was expecting more from a story that I already related to. A writer decides to buy season tickets to his local English soccer club, because he's going through a mid-life crisis, and he wants to be passionate about something.
I enjoy soccer memoirs, but not this one. There were some choice comedic moments, but the author's voice doesn't work. It's introspective to a fault. He goes on odd tangents that have nothing to do with soccer. It's written like it was straight from his diary, without editing.
I can't recommend this book. Unless you like free books o A writer decides to buy season tickets to his local English soccer club, because he's going through a mid-life crisis, and he wants to be passionate about something. Unless you like free books on Amazon, then go nuts! Gullhanger tells the tale of a man who set out to try and rekindle his passion for the game, shunning the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal for his local side, Brighton and Hove Albion, the newly promoted champions of Division Three.
This title charts the author's developing passion for the "Seagulls," a team that he had never before given a monkey's about, rarely glancing at their match reports and unable to name more than one of their current players.
