50 Teams That Mattered is a wonderful journey through football detailing the great teams that you'd expect and the superb teams that you frankly didn't know existed.
The classics are all told superbly well throughout the book. The Mighty Magyars, Spain's 2010 World Cup winning team, Brazil of the 1970s and the Lisbon Lions are all involved.
However, it is in the stories of the other teams, the untold heroes, that this book really shines.
The story of Sheffield FC, of David Beckham's LA Galaxy, of Colombia's Millonarios and of the Superga air disaster in 1949. They are the chapters and tales that make this football book stand apart in a market that is arguably becoming a little flooded. This is an excellent "alternative history" to football; even thought you get the feeling it was never intended as such.
