First Person View - Book of the Month Fail

    On this the occasion of the two hundredth post, it is pertinent to look back at some of the pieces from the past few months. It’s been great fun; thanks for coming by and may the next century of posts help usher in a new era for POV-FS.

    February’s Book of the Month has been selected and commenced; I can already tell it’s going to be a great read.

First Person View - Book of the Month - Reflections – When Friday Comes Football in the War Zone by James Montague

    I really enjoy these travel log style regional explorations – Simon Kuper’s Football Against the Enemy and Jonathan Wilson’s Behind the Curtain: Travels in Eastern European Football are of the same vein - and Mr. Montague has skillfully used the game of football to break down some of the walls our Western minds have put up around this complicated region.
