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.

For (soccer) history buffs or just trivia hounds this is richly rewarding resource. It is obviously well researched and written in an easy style.

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.

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,
