Product Description

Book Description

A fresh look back at classic World Cup matches and moments, minute-by-minute as they really happened.

From the Back Cover

Everyone remembers Gazza's tears, Zidane's headbutt and Maradona's hand of God

But do you recall Platt's late 'goal' that nearly sent England to the 1990 final?

West Germany beating the Dutch with Total Football of their own in '74?

The 1970 final veering from the sublime to the ridiculous with Pele shanking shots into the stand?

The goals, the genius, the farces and the fistfights. The men behind the Guardian's world-famous minute-by-minute football reports - the original and best - bring you the story of the World Cup from 1930 to the present day, as seen through fresh eyes. History unencumbered by received wisdom, Smyth and Murray give you the classic matches as they happened.

Smyth and Murray minute-by-minute reports on the most famous World Cup matches as they happened. Fascinating and amusing (as expected from the best two Guardian MBM writers), especially of matches you've previously seen - you'll be amazed how your memory has played tricks on you. Such a good idea its been nicked by the BBC.

Excellent and unique take on classic World Cup matches, although the authors have a strange fascination with the words 'ludicrous' and 'preposterous', which gets very irritating. Get a thesaurus guys.

History brought to life 17 April 2014
By Dave H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a long-time fan of the Guardian's MBM/OBO live-blog format, I expected to really enjoy this. I wasn't disappointed. A fun romp through football history that is only missing emails from Gary Naylor.
