Another Bloody Saturday
A Journey to The Heart and Soul of Football
Written By Mat Guy
Luath Prerss Limited Edinburgh Reprinted 2020 Edition
This is a charming book written with a lot of passion and empathy for his friends, family and all those who he comes in contact with.
The book follows Mat’s 2014/15 season from the start in July 2014 for the game between Bangor City and Stjarnan in a Europa League First Qualifying Round Second Leg to April 2015 and Dagenham & Redbridge playing Accrington Stanley in DivisionTwo.
There are many unusual stops in ths journey for a Southampton based fan, including the Faroes, Cyprus, Sri Lanka, Wales and many other more local destinations.
We all dream of unusual football outcomes but Mat seems to achieve his in often fascinating and definately not conventional ways. Throughout the book though there is a growing love for Accrinton Stanley who although many hours away from home give him the warm feeling of belonging.
You can support different teams for many reasons and due to changing times in your life and Mat shows this in his book and retains loyalty to Salisbury, Southampton and Accrington.
If Matt writes another book I will be in the queue to buy it.
