A must for the true Orient supporter
on 5 August 2008
This is a fantastic read. Whilst its appeal probably won't extend to the mass market, it's a must for the true Orient fan. It documents a time when footballers really were footballers (some of them - Matt Lockwood springs to mind - still are), unlike today's breed of preening Premiership prima-donnas.
The author has done a great job of researching and interviewing past greats who have graced Brisbane Road, and the tone is both lively and entertaining.
It's nostalgic, without being cloying; and respectful without being deferential. There are some lovely anecdotes in there too. Thoroughly recommended!
