Up Pompey by Chuck Culpepper
Book DescriptionAfter fifteen years in his job, disillusioned prize-winning American sports journalist Chuck Culpepper decided it was time for a change. He moved to the UK where he discovered football and began to visit stadiums and sit among big crowds, learning about a league chock-a-bloc with facts he didn't know, legacies that hadn't grown tired, and astounding fan noise he couldn't wait to comprehend. Most important, he discovered the Fear of Relegation which wreaks fear, envy, anxiety, desperation and humiliation - in other words, so many of the things still great about sport. Chuck decided to start his second sports childhood by following one club through the 10-month 2006-07 season: Harry Redknapp's Portsmouth. UP POMPEY - a journey from snide, abject cynicism to the freshest of goosebumps - describes Chuck's dramatic year spent burrowed in England's Premiership.
