I enjoyed reading this book.

It’s a very funny book.

I like it because you have the choice to go to any page and start there. I find it a good technique. There were nice and kind bits, like giving racism the red card, and things I didn't know, like in the 1990 World Cup, Gary Lineker pooed himself. A funny bit was when the author congratulates you for getting to the beginning page without eating the book."Pardon me. It was the 240 pages of a book I ate for breakfast this morning."

It’s a really funny fiction book.It had lots of funny parts and my interest is football at school and how a lot of people play football at school.I would highly recommend people who love football.

I thought it was a really funny book and I love football. I’d recommend it to everyone who likes football.

Brilliant book, just do NOT read it if you want to know only legitimate things about football because it mentions things that aren't real, like inter-dimensional football! Really funny jokes, a real page-turner if you like football.

Very funny

not that good

funny and fun reading!

I loved this book when I love football myself. It was a great read

really love this book and highly recommend
