Product Description

Review

"The Got Not Got books play it simple, to devastating effect. Long-forgotten childhood joys unexpectedly come flooding back." --Sunday Mirror Booked! Football Books of the Month

"A trip down memory lane and real nostalgic delight! If you have ever collected any sort of Hammers associated memorabilia, there is an excellent chance it will be among this trove of treasure... There is also a huge catalogue of mentions (and photographs) of many of the men who have worn claret and blue with distinction. Sure: Hurst, Peters, Moore, Bonds, Brooking and Devonshire; but the likes of the Taylors, the Robsons, Lock, McAvennie, Musgrove and Paddon too. Throw in some Hammer jigsaws, colourful mugs (drinking vessels not those dodgy 1970s reserve centre-halves), fanzines and the various versions of 'I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles', you have a book which, depending on your age, is simply wicked or absolutely fabulous! --Newham Recorder

"Alongside its bigger brother, The Lost World of Football, the Got, Not Got team have released a series of club-specific books. These are naturally smaller affairs and have a slimmed down price tag of only £12.99. These have a wealth of material all related to the relevant club. This one covers West Ham United and has 144 pages of Upton Park related memorabilia. There's a vast amount on offer." --The Football Attic

"There's a whole series of books called Got, Not Got: brilliant books looking back at old football memorabilia." --James Brown, talkSPORT

"If you love the website, you will love the book! Great Christmas present to yourself or a loved one!" --Steve Marsh, They Fly So High

"The English publisher Pitch Publishing provides a series of books with a clear penchant for soccer romance. It covers the period from 1960 to 1990, when the commercial monstrosity of the Champions League so it was not yet invented. The books are treasure chests of memories and memorabilia, such as badges, football towns, programs, shirts, scarves, long-playing plates and old elftal and stadium photos." --Panenka magazine, Holland

"The authors have tapped into a rich vein of nostalgia by identifying the kind of memorabilia we will all have had at one time or another. I found myself transported back to my earlier days of watching football, swapping cards in the school playground and collecting autographs at the ground. Lovely books and they really have hit on a good formula. If they've done one for your club it's well worth the outlay to buy it - you might well find your own collection is not as complete as you once imagined it to be." --Programme Monthly & Football Collectable

Nostalgia fest for anybody with a clear memory of football in the 1970s and 1980s. Will have you scrambling into the loft or the garage looking for that missing Hartleys jam lid with Geoff Hurst on or your Sun Soccerstamps. If you know what I'm on about then this is for you

Got told about this book through a west ham website and what a well written and quality book it is.
Remember having some of the merchandise but too young for others.
