4.0 out of 5 stars Victorian Interest ! 29 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this. I love to read about the early history of Football and this read brought alive a lot of characters who were, previously, just names in history.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem 13 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For (soccer) history buffs or just trivia hounds this is richly rewarding resource. It is obviously well researched and written in an easy style.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well researched 17 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting book about the early days of the great game. Some good anecdotes but maybe too many lists that could be looked up fairly easily elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but a real opportunity missed. 17 Sep 2013
By Manfred
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Quite a lot of interesting extracts but it needs better structure, more organisation and even a little commentary. Good research; poor presentation. Sources could have helped.

An interesting insight into the origins of football including good summaries of the leading men of the day and how they influenced soccer and the obvious class system before the modern game was opened up to the working classes,
