    1. I love most of the collection of short stories in it Among my faves are by Hanna Alkaf, Marc de Faoite, Joon Teoh, Tina Isaac, Masturah Alatas, Zed Adam Idris Shaqila Munisamy s stories A recommended read 3.5 star from me


    2. Interesting collection of fiction and non fiction around the theme of sport Very nicely designed book with some great stories Disclaimer I have a story featured in this book


    3. I am a giveaway winner A bit late on the review, my bad.When I first heard about this anthology, I was pretty stoked Being both a football fan and a book lover, I have yet to really see anything that sort of bridge between my two favourite hobbies There s also this weird perception that sports fans are brainless jocks and bookworms are not interested in sports So, seeing that not only this anthology exists, but it s also set in Malaysia, I was pretty sold Now, with all anthologies, it s always a [...]


    4. A good attempt at a book of short stories for Malaysia with a sports theme, however the quality of the stories are not consistent Some possibilities here and yet some very mediocre ones.


    5. first reads winner.This collection of stories depicts the Malaysian spirit for sports and how Each piece of story carries its own emotion and links it to the common thread of sports Be it pride, suffering, nostalgia and this one is my weak spot , love, care, understanding, self identity and many others, all through diligent sportsmanship I personally, though, didn t come up to terms with some stories And being a non native, there should have been translations of the terms for international reade [...]


    6. A good collection of short stories revolving the sports theme, coming from people of all walks of life some showed heartwarming stories that are inspirational to us, which are balanced off by stories which show the dark side of sports when one is consumed by greed and the overbearing need to not fail A very good compilation of stories indeed for those who love to read about sports.


    7. Inspiring collection of short stories about ups and downs of Malaysian sportsman I enjoyed reading it Given for an honest review.
