Manchester United Ruined My Life Reviews


This is a wonderful book ... It is also extremely funny - Alan English, Sunday Times

His prose ... is never less than sharp, smart and easy on the eye ... His writing is so attractive ... [I] would be thrilled to read more - Jim White, Guardian

It is his childhood and absent friends that touch the rawest, universal nerve - Simon Garfield, Mail on Sunday

Shindler's art lies in conversational writing, and an ability to change gear deftly from humour to devotion and back through fanaticism to the black comedy of Manchester City - Howard Davies, The Times

Shindler is both touching and convincing in his evocation of his formative years ... it's skilful, entertaining and heading for the top of the league - Richard Pendlebury, Daily Mail

Evocative, funny-sad and warm-hearted - Michael Henderson, The Times

Sits in the same class as Fever Pitch ... Shindler's down-to-the-bone honesty also reminds us self-indulgence can be great entertainment - The Times

This could still be the most important football book since Fever Pitch capturing, as it does, the delicious irony that caused City fans to fall into a soon to be legendary chorus of "Are you watching Macclesfield?" - Mick Middles, Manchester Evening News
