    Jealous envious green with envy emulous are just a few of adjectives that immediately sprung to my mind whilst reading this book That was just the mental image of all of those Colombian womenFantastic account by Dave Freeman living any footballing hipster’s that’s the much maligned term for those like me take an interest in not just English football dream In the space of around 16 months the author manages to travel from the United States of America down to Brazil via stints in Mexico Guatemala and Nicaragua amongst many others Whilst doing this he manages to attend a staggering 60 football matches and chronicles not just his experiences at each match but also gives you a great flavour of the local culture in each countrycity he visitsRanging from being in attendance to gay orgies in the hotel he works in being held at knife point at a match in Colombia trying to navigate customs entering Paraguay and most importantly spending time with the original Barra Bravas in Argentina this book is a must for any fan of Latin American football or those that like a bit of an authentic footballing experience instead of the sanitised offerings English football currently has to offerThe story about accidentally antagonising the exiting Barra Brava when posting with his England flag is a faux pas I can totally imagine doing myselfI had often thought about learning Spanish or another foreign language My C for GCSE French excluding and this book has really give me the get up and go to start doing this as I want to experience what Latin America has to offer and Dave’s book gives an insight about how much rewarding a travel experience can be mixing it with the locals instead of just doing your typical gringo trailIf I do make the trip then this book will certainly have been a big part of how I’ve got there
