I’d be surprised if this is news to anyone, but Fever Pitch is fucking excellent and essential reading for any gooner. I’d recommend it to any football fan in fact.

Long overdue a re-read now I think about it.


#5

Fever Piych changed my life. I will be forever grateful to Hornby.


#6

And George Graham of course. No Anfield 89 no great ending.
In short no book.


#7

Watched Tom Watt do his reading adaptation of this in Liverpool a few years back with a mate.
The Anfield moment was brilliant and taking in good spirit to be fair.
Everton fans loved it too. Personally not a big fan of the film though.


#8

Having read the book in my early teens I decided to never watch the film because I knew that nothing would ever be able to top the nook, all the film could do is diminish the greatness of Fever Pitch.

The Arsenal shirt was a great book. List and describes all our shirts and describes memorable moments over the years.
Great reading how the iconic shirt came into being and the traditions of the captains call on sleeves.
Coffee table book and over twenty quid but pure class for me.

Old thread but I am going on holiday this week and wanting to pick up an Arsenal related book. Has anyone read the Mesut Ozil one? And if so, was it any good?

Ray Parlour autobiography is really good.
