Product Description

Review

Witty, well-written and deeply sympathetic... a fitting monument for all the intrepid women who turned out to play the beautiful game in the teeth of male scorn --The Daily Mail --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent book EXCEPT that the printing was a technical mess. Pages repeated and missing. How many centuries since Gutenberg? Absolutely appalling. Very sad- because I would have liked to have read it - my grandfather having been the secretary to Dick Kerr Football Club in the 1910's and 1920's

BUT replaced and refunded without quibble - fair play. Pity Amazon don't pay their fair share of British taxes and successive governments let them get away with it.

considering i hate football
but i didn't buy it for me, it's a gift for a girl with balls who like the above sport which is not rugby or moto gp or f1
what would i know!
i was just a bit disappointed with the packaging
it arrived in the usual over-sized parcel box with tuns of brown paper when a simple cellophane wrap would have stopped the cover from getting damaged, again - it's a gift - i can put it in wrapping paper myself but really the general packaging could at least stop damage - am i asking for too much?
