    • I'm becoming quite a big fan of Calvin Wade. His first book "Forever is Over" actually inspired me to write my own book. I enjoyed his second book "Kiss my Name" just as much!This book obviously is completely different from the other two, them being fiction and this being a semi autobiography style book. However, the style of writing in this is the same as Wades earlier books, his writing style makes it very easy to read, you feel as if he is talking to you directly.I was looking forward to this [...]


    • Having read 2 of Calvin's 3 novels I thought I'd give this non fiction book a go. The author and I are around the same age and I'm also a football fan (albeit a Scottish one) so that did help. The author takes us on a personal journey of attending every round of the FA cup in season 2013/14 with his dad and some other companions. The football stuff is good but it is the way in which the author intertwines it with an insight into his own life that is really enjoyable, and very self effacing. A ve [...]


    • What a fantastic read, (ok, I'm biased, as I share the same taste in football teams). This book could be seen as a diary, but, not a secret diary! Wade takes you on a journey, (a magical mystery tour, if you like). You actually feel as you are at all the games with this band of merry men, (and women). The Characters are without exception, all likeable, the sort of people you would like to go for a drink with. One thing that comes across, is that grass roots football, has lots of decent people an [...]


    • This book takes you on a journey through the FA cup in the course of one year, from the earliest rounds to the crowning of the champions.Overall this is an enjoyable book and shows the readers that there is more to the FA cup than just the third round onwards.What is found interesting were the side stories that the author digressed into, and how it was not all just match reports of each round.I would recommend this book to football fans as it shows there is life outside the premiership and the s [...]


    • Fantastic What a book, Calvin Wade proves the magic of the cup lives on, if your a fan of the beautiful game this book is a must. The idea is unique pick a team in the qualifying round of the FA cup and follow the winner of each game to the FA Cup final. Calvin sets out on his footballing journey on his own for the most part but by the end he's rekindled a relationship with his dad and met new friends along the way.


    • Love lower league football and thus captures the excitement of the great game and the characters it attracts. It also features genuinely decent people and with so much of life these days apparently dominated by cynics, cheats and a pervasive sense of disrespect, this is a simple and refreshing read. My son is currently on page 250.


    • As a wife who got slowly drawn into the world of football (well Bristol City to be exact) I was unsure if I would like this book - but its not all about the football, its about the authors journey through life changes, football, his dad, football, and the friends he makes.It is beautifully written, interesting and full of anecdotes. As a non knowledgable football type person I can very highly recommend this book. I especially liked the parts about Luke Freeman for obvious reasonsAlso, if while r [...]
