A Good Read, 19 Dec 2010
An informative and thoroughly entertaining look back at the way football used to be played and managed before money became the driving force that changed the game, its a matter of opinion wether that change has been for the better, this book takes us back half a century and gives us an insight into the heroes and villians of the era.
Particularly entertaining are what Stan tells us about his early years and family, growing up in colliery village with four brothers, a hard working mother, and a miner father who was rather fond of a drink which was probably typical of most families living in a mining area.
Very enjoyable read.
