A kind of retrospective by writer Nick Hornby, who life is guided by how his soccer team (Arsenal) is doing. For a true fan of the English premier league, this book would trigger memories of players and games, of stunning victories and losses. While reading much of the book was a chore, the last 35 pages were quite excellent. ( )

Extremely charming, although I wish it had a bit more explanation of the basics for an ugly American like me. ( )

I am just about the furthest personality type away from the sports fan Hornby is, and depicts in this book. I actively tune out from sports on TV, in a live setting, and any other iteration. I admit to not reading the blurb about the book before I started, just diving straight in because I like Hornby, and thought it would be similar to High Fidelity. I have just glanced at the IMDB to see if I watched the film based on the book, but I hadn't. Probably because: sports.
That said, it was interesting to see how the relationship between a man and his sport of choice has impacted his life and relationships with people. My husband is a big sports fan, and I am slightly amused by this: so is my youngest son, who knows a startling amount of stats despite never getting to watch any fixtures as most of them play while he is in bed. I have no idea where he gets all his data from, but am told it is fairly accurate. Husband is a chronic remote hog, and perpetual channel flicker. This means I have to endure 30-second bursts of multiple matches of an evening, while he tries to watch two different matches concurrently. Thankfully TV hasn't interested me in so long, that I am fairly adept at picking up one of my other activities and zoning so far out, that it washes over me. Anyway this is a review of a book, about sports, that I read, while tuning out said sport, while it was being watched on TV, and it is fair to say that I had much more interest in the book than the sport it was based upon. Partly due to the intelligence of the writer, who is able to detach himself from his fandom enough to provide a reasonable self-analysis, and partly because it is set inside a life which encompassed (although not as whole heartedly) other interests.

Nick Hornby scrive bene, questo è fuor di dubbio. Ha uno stile semplice e scanzonato e la sua prosa è spontanea, sembra che scrivere gli sia naturale quanto respirare. Questa è una confessione a cuore aperto, senza filtri o omissioni; eppure ci vuole parecchio coraggio e molta consapevolezza per venire a patti con le proprie ossessioni e darle in pasto al pubblico, sempre pronto a puntare il dito: l'idea un intellettuale che passa i sabati pomeriggio allo stadio fra i tifosi più scalmanati e il cui umore invariabilmente dipende dai risultati della sua squadra del cuore è difficile da digerire perfino oggi che il calcio ormai ha invaso le nostre vite, figuriamoci quasi trent'anni fa quando il libro è stato pubblicato. Eppure l'ironia e l'onestà con cui Hornby si mette a nudo riescono a farci passare sopra ad ogni eccesso, mentre l'amore spassionato che nutre per questo sport è talmente evidente che risulta quasi contagioso: probabilmente anche quest'opera ha contribuito a rendere il calcio un fenomeno della portata attuale (ed in fin dei conti è stato un bene o un male? Difficile dirlo)
Aldilà di questi meriti oggettivi, è chiaro che è un libro destinato ad una fetta molto specifica di persone: tifosi (che come ci spiega egregiamente l'autore, sono una categoria ben diversa dagli amanti del calcio), possibilmente nati negli anni 50, ancora meglio se in Inghilterra. Io non rientro in nessuna di queste categorie, il massimo che si può dire di me riguardo il calcio è che sono una simpatizzante della mia squadra, seguo volentieri i mondiali ed ho un padre tifoso; ovvio quindi che non ne sia stata conquistata, mentre leggevo sapevo già che non ero il tipo di pubblico a cui si stava rivolgendo. Però lo consiglierei ad occhi chiusi a mio padre e a qualunque altro appassionato, sapendo che lo apprezzerebbe perchè si sentirebbe capito. ( )

Nonostante il calcio che imperversa. Grazie a Stefano che mi ha fatto conoscere Nick Hornby partendo proprio dal libro che in potenza mi sarebbe dovuto piacere meno. ( )

Mi innamorai del calcio come mi sarei poi innamorato delle donne: improvvisamente, inesplicabilmente, acriticamente, senza pensare al dolore o allo sconvolgimento che avrebbe portato con sé.

I tend to overestimate the metaphorical value of football, and therefore introduce it into conversations where it simply does not belong.
