Tired of the excesses of the modern game and in an attempt to rediscover his mojo for the sport, the author goes on the road visiting every corner of the Spanish Region of Murcia and beyond. On his travels he discovers the club’s links with other fan groups throughout Spain and further afield which then takes him on journeys to places as diverse as Bilbao and Gibraltar.En-route he pays a different kind of visit to some of Spain’s hidden pearls. This is a highly personal account of one person’s relationship with a country, its people, its history and ultimately its alternative football scene.The book combines the pleasures of travel writing with a profound scrutiny of Spanish life seen through the eyes of an exile from Tyneside and of course it’s all played out to a backdrop of football.
