Not sure if these are all still in print, but they're very good, though the strictly football content has dated. More about people and places than football which (in the main) is what makes hopping fun.
Playing at Home, John Aizlewood, Orion Books, ISBN 0 75281 166 5, first edition 1998. Every Football League ground during the 1997-98 season. Sharply observed. Relieved my team wasn't in the FL at the time!
The Far Corner, Harry Pearson, Warner Books, ISBN 0 7515 1058 0, first edition 1994. North-East football, from top flight to Wearside League, during the 1993-94 season. Laugh aloud funny.
A Season with Verona, Tim Parks, Vintage, ISBN 0 099 42267 0, first edition 2002. Following a small club - Hellas Verona - in Serie A during the 2000-01 season. Thoroughly enjoyable - even if you don't care for foreign football.
There's as much pride in this club as there is at Anfield - just fewer people showing it.
If you don't like it, don't ****ing come.
