Arsenal The Agony & The Ecstasy

Arsenal The Agony & The Ecstasy - Ian Castle I enjoyed Ian Castle's book "Arsenal: The Agony & The Ecstasy". Castle takes the reader on a 43 year journey as he relives his experiences as a life-long Arsenal season ticket holder. It's an uneven ride: parts are gripping, others are not much more than a litany of brief match reports but there's much here that the football fan will empathise with and, for Arsenal fans in particular, this is an enthralling history of the club from the late 1960s to the present.
