Soccernomics and The Smell of Football

Soccernomics by Simon Kuper and Stefan Szymanski: 5/5 stars - I really enjoyed this book because I never thought of looking at soccer through statistics and a 'outside looking in' perspective. 

The Smell of Football by Baz Rathbone: 4/5 stars - This book is pure entertainment however I don't know if it would appeal to non-Evertonians. While he talks about his playing career at BCFC and Blackburn he saves the main event of the book is his time as a physio at Everton.
