• "Reminiscent in places of Iain Bank's The Crow Road and Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up!, Hudson's intricately plotted comedy works best at its broadest, satirising soccer's greed"

    Financial Times
  • "Funny and richly inventive, and you don't have to like the beautiful game to enjoy the journey"

    The Times
  • "There is an echo of Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up! - a similarly broad satirical novel with larger-than-life characters"

    Times Literary Supplement
  • "Enormously enjoyable"
