Finally a book on football/soccer (not cricket) by an Indian Author. Not that I dislike Cricket (Well I would never tell) but I am a big time Football fan, I respect all Football clubs (Not at all when they are on fields of course) but I am a Huge Real Madrid fan..specially their Jersey no. 7, forward player if you know who I mean. So It must pretty obvious how much I was anticipating thing book and the Book Cover with a football panel prints is enough to give the gist of the story on

The book interested me from the title itself because I am, and always will be, a Manchester United supporter. When the author mentioned that it's a soccer+love story, it made me more curious to read it.

On the pitch, and on matchday, your support might be toward your favorite club, but I feel this is very enjoyable for any soccer fan. There is nothing very different in the way the story progresses, but I feel there is something different in this book.. A simple story about a guy's passion toward

It is a readable book, to all those who like reading romance and football or anyone of these. Apart from being based on football, there is nothing different in this book from the other ‘love-stories’. Next time, you are going to travel for around three to four hours, pick a copy of it. Reading around one hundred and thirty pages won’t take much of your time and will not bore you for sure.

a simple and light read about football, friendship, love and life..

Categorising this book would be difficult. It is a bit of football, a bit of male bonding and a bit of romance. ‘Male bonding’ is more stressed than ‘Romance’ though with ‘Football’ being the main theme.
