Product Description


"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

Product Description

Got, Not Got: The Lost World of West Ham United is an Aladdin's cave of memories and memorabilia, guaranteed to whisk you back to the Boleyn's fondly remembered 'Golden Age' of mud and magic - as well as a Hammers-mad childhood of miniature tabletop games and imaginary, comic-fuelled worlds. The book recalls a more innocent era of football, lingering longingly over relics from the good old days - West Ham stickers and petrol freebies, league ladders, big-match programmes and much more - revisiting lost football culture, treasures and pleasures that are 100 per cent claret and blue. If you were a Junior Hammer, one of the army of obsessive soccer kids at any time from Bobby Moore lifting the World Cup to the early days of the Premier League, then this is the book to recall the mavericks - Peters and Hurst, Best and Brooking, Bonds and Cottee - and the marvels of the Lost World of Football.

Also by the authors: The Lost World of Football, What a Shot! and Got, Not Got.
