    Excellent book This is a VERY academic study of the issues of race and racism in English football I love the interviews Well done VERY interesting stuff I was especially blown away by the discussion of subtle racism Also the strange double standard of people who hurl racist chants at football but have pictures of footballers of color framed in their front rooms Again very interesting I'm glad that the authors didn't take the easy way out and really discussed this issue with all of the strange difficulties it presents
