Review:

"McIlvanney's is as good as sports writing gets and the best of it can be found in this book" * Sunday Times * "All football writers should keep this book by their sides in case the magic rubs off" * The Observer * "Football has brought out the street poet in McIlvanney. He is the journalistic equivalent of Jock Stein, Matt Busby and Alex Ferguson" * The Scotsman * "McIlvanney on Football should be considered as close to the Holy Bible as you're going to get . . . That McIlvanney is a prophet of divine wisdom and inspired insight when it comes to the Beautiful Game is beyond mortal questioning" * Total Football *
