Devil Worship - A Fan's Voyage

Kevin Leyland

World Audience, Inc.
ISBN: 9781935444824; 186pp

The internet has spawned a new type of fan, one who never goes to matches but still calls themself a die-hard, and here is the evidence.
'Devil Worship', a recounting of Manchester United's 2008-'09 season, is subtitled 'A Fan's Voyage', but the only travelling Kevin Leyland does is to the nearest sports bar or his laptop. He lives in Georgia, USA you see, and chose to support Man U having watched them in the Champions League on ESPN - they're not so much in his blood as on his iPhone.
His devotion to their televised games is impressive, as his vivid descriptions of the action confirm, but you do start wondering why he does not just emigrate to England if he goes to such lengths never to miss a minute in the soccer-illiterate surroundings of the Deep South.
Leyland's crazy love sadly does not extend beyond an online relationship. There is no mention of Malcolm Glazer, FC United and the ownership saga, but then why should that affect a TV viewer thousands of miles away? Nor is there any reflection on the inequality of the Premier League, the glory-hunter accusation levelled at Man U fans worldwide, or why teams like Stoke and Wigan still have followers. It is just too easy to pick the richest and most successful team to cheer for isn't it, or has the underdog had its day?
Perhaps this is just a read for fellow US Man U fans rather than a 'Fever Pitch' for the digital generation. Only when Leyland leaves the TV soccer routine did I find myself hooked, as I am saturated with the Red Devils at the best of times.
You feel some warmth in 'Devil Worship' for a man's naive love for a faraway football team, but we still learn little of his innermost thoughts , which means that when it concludes with an unapologetically teenage outburst of 'Glory, glory..', it sadly wears its arriviste badge with pride.

Not For Sale

by Andy Walsh & Adam Brown

Published by Mainstream

Describing in detail how the attempt by Rupert Murdoch's BSkyB television company to buy Manchester United was halted, this book draws on a variety of sources to track the events following the announcement of the bid. It examines the reaction of both the media and the football world to the final outcome. After seven months of hard campaigning and a coalition of forces centred around the independent Manchester United Supporters Association, the British Government was forced to block the bid and save the club from becoming another of Murdoch's conquests. With American tycoon Malcolm Glazer now eyeing a takeover bid of Old Trafford this book is a pertinent read.

Colin Shindler traces the careers of the 21 players who along with George Best were part of the Manchester United and Manchester City teams that met in the 1964 FA Youth Cup semi-final. John Aston, David Sadler and George Best, of course, went on to play for United in the 1968 European Cup final and Dave Connor, Mike Doyle and Glyn Pardoe were all part of City's successful teams of the late 1960s. Schindler's book, though, is as much about the footballers who didn't make it to the top level as those that did.
