A Football Odyssey represents a new slant on football writing. It addresses the game through the eyes of ordinary supporters.If you want to glory in the whims and fancies of 20-year-old millionaires - or the sanitised accounts of the rise and rise of clubs funded by oil-billionaires or leveraged buy outs -then this isn't for you.However, if you want to understand why the Jambos break their fan's hearts - or what it means to downsize your Uniteds - or how this game can shape and mirror lives- then you're in the right bit of the sport section.A book that is truly of the fans, for the fans and, most importantly, by the fans.Chapters on Glasgow Celtic by Jim O'Brien. on Hereford United by Jools Page, on Birmingham City by Paul Bowes, on Heart of Midlothian by David Thomson, on Southend United by Helen Mitchell, on Raith Rovers by Ann Brand, on Bristol Rovers by Eileen Sutton, on Motherwell by Hugh Paton, and on Sheffield Wednesday by Sean Fenelon.
