A season with Verona

By Tim Parks,
Im reading it right now and I guess I`m halfway trough and I got to say its the best damn book ive read in a while. And not just being an Hellas fan in the need of flashbacks from an easier time back in serie A. but as a book on Italy and its inhabitants as a whole.

if you havent read it, I highly recommend it

I read it in summer, great book indeed. The best football book I've ever read. Hellas fans are a funny bunch.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Only just seen this. Yeah great book, those Verona fans are mental. He's a good author. I enjoyed Italian Neighbours too. He really makes you believe what he's saying.

Without it gravity is just gravy.
