I don't normally do football books ... but I did do this football book. And it was a proper romp. It's the shaggiest of shaggy dog stories, and as twist piled upon twist, things came perilously close to juvenile time after time. But ... it works! There's such verve to it, the plotting is so skillful, and there's such a sense of joy bubbling away under the surface, that somehow Adrian Dean pulls it off. I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere.
