"Anoraknophobia" is an affectionate and revealing account of the life of the sporting anorak. Disclosing the experiences and methodology of the self-confessed football-fact fanatic, it goes a long way to discrediting the traditionally held belief that geeks lead drab daily existences. Furnished with a cast of groundhoppers, program collectors, school team managers and Subbuteo players, Rob Grillo's gently self-deprecating memoir brings home the truth that the sporting obsessive is in reality a social animal, sharing his passion with other like-minded enthusiasts. Every sports fan will recognize the characters who feature in this engaging and lighthearted account, and maybe sympathize a little with how it feels to be a football anorak.
