The Grass of Another Country is by Merrill. I second The Game of Their Lives by Geoffry Douglas, it inspired my username. My favourite is The Kop, the End of an Era, by Stephen F. Kelly. It's a history of Liverpool's Spion Kop, up to the point it went all seated after the Taylor Report. Instead of reading like a history text, Kelly tells the story strictly through anectdotes from players, Kopites, Stewards who worked there for years and years. Fantastic for any Liverpool Fan, and my greatest ever ebay buy for only $3. Hard to find in the States I'm sure. Red and Raw is also solid. It's teh history of Liverpool v Manchester United. For a bit of a laugh, try The Van, by Roddy Doyle. It's a novel about two Irishmen who quit their jobs to sell fish and chips out of a van, which they park outside of pubs in Ireland during Italia 90. Nice work. Doyle also wrote Trainspotting.
