Summary

The 2016/17 season marked the 25th of the Premier League. This book recognises that fact in a way which is factually accurate yet dismissive of reputations and hype. It recognises the achievements of Swindon and Barnsley as much as Manchester United and Chelsea and sneaks in references to borg drones from Star Trek, Oscar Wilde, Nirvana and Red Dwarf alongside analysis of the songs and seasons. 

Notts County fan Billy Ivory's foreword sets a tone of bitter irony as the story (shocked back to life by Leicester City) is told in unconventional fashion. Fans of all 49 teams who've been involved in Premier League have their say, except for Huddersfield (due to publishing deadlines), although we feel sure Patrick Stewart will want this one for Christmas....

The Premier League charts each of the 25 seasons with the story of how the titles were won and the players who starred. From 2011/12's incredible finale to Arsenal's 'Invincibles' as well as each of Manchester United's record 13 triumphs, find out more about the rich history of the Premier League.

Utter nonsense

Got 25 minutes into this and it’s just some bitter guy, who supports a team that’s never been in the premier league, moaning about the premier league.

If you are over the age of 40 and hate change then you may enjoy it as you can moan along with him about the ‘good old days’, what ‘proper football is’ and that you can’t chant ‘I pay your wages’ at footballers anymore.

It’s such archaic views from a guy who probably wishes he could go back to the time where he could sexually harass women and make racists comments - before that god awful human rights came along and stole it from him. ‘Ah, the good ol’ days’

Narration is worth the book

As someone who is fairly knowledgeable in English football, I didn’t learn a whole lot new in this book. The narration is worth it all though. Quite a bit of humor throughout and fun to listen to the dread that some fans have dealt with in regards to their own teams.
