Well-known blogger Stuart Fuller is a member of a growing band of thousands of football fans who, growing tired of watching an over-hyped and over-priced Premier League, and taking advantage of cut-price travel, enjoys watching his favourite game in different countries.?This is not simply a reference guide, more a travelogue - a book that traces the journeys Fuller takes for football, whether with England, where he has been a far from successful manager of the England Fans senior team, or on a whim.?He has watched matches in places as diverse as Moscow, Macedonia, Tallinn, Palermo, Zagreb, Florida, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Andorra, Zurich, Copenhagen, Vienna, Stockholm, Monaco, Salzburg, Istanbul, Bremen, Paris, Krakow, Minsk, Sofia, Naples, Skopje and Barcelona.?Anyone wanting to follow in his footsteps will be able to use the book as a guide but will also enjoy Fuller's account of dealing with Easyjet and Ryanair, sorting out the purchase of tickets in foreign lands and 'collecting' football stadiums.?You will meet Fuller's list of fellow travellers, including Football Jo, Dagenham Dan, Big Ben and Rob the Red.?The result is a hugely entertaining travelogue in which Fuller reckons he drank two hundred pints of beer, ate thirty-seven sausages and had nine travelling companions. ?On a serious note he also tells fellow fans about the stadiums he visited, how to get there and how to buy a ticket.

Reviews

...both informative and entertaining. On trains and boats and planes, his search for one more stamp for his football passport knows no boundaries. On his marathon journey of research, he takes in 20 countries in more than 30 trips, and matches too many to catalogue but all memorable for a variety of reasons. And as a good food and beer guide, he calculates that on his travels he consumed of more than 200 points of beer and 37 sausages. That's in addition to the organic reindeer burger and non-alcoholic ale he sampled in Malmo and the Jumbo Texan Chili Dog and Coca-Cola by the gallon in Orlando. His book is the perfect antidote to the bland and banal autobiographical offerings of the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney. Their literary works fail to scratch the veneer which the game is now wrapped in. Dave Harrison, Sports Journalists Assocation.
