Read Nick Hornby's autobiographical essay here.
It is the story of the author's relationship with football and with Arsenal Football Club, above all. It is composed of several chapters in chronological order, from the time the author first became a football fan as a child until his early thirties. Each chapter is about a particular football match that he remembers watching, most but not all at Highbury Stadium, and how it related to the events that were going on with his personal life at the time. As well as relating Arsenal's highs and lows, Nick Hornby talks about other football clubs that played in London.
