Does exactly what is says on the tin............,
This review is from: Football Ambassador: The Autobiography of an Arsenal Legend (Paperback)As the sub-title of this book tells us, Football Ambassador is the autobiography of an Arsenal legend.
For those Arsenal fans not familiar with the name of Eddie Hapgood or the role he played for Arsenal in the all-conquering era of the 1930s then it's time you found out.
As captain of Arsenal and England, Eddie Hapgood was the Tony Adams of his generation. In addition to his Arsenal honours (5 league championships and 2 FA Cup winners medals), Hapgood was capped 43 times for England. This might not sound too impressive until you appreciate that this was before the days of Englands participation on the World Cup and before the European Championships even existed. In today terms 43 caps would equate to more than 100.
This country has produced few full-backs as good as Eddie Hapgood and fewer still have worn the red and white of Arsenal.
This book was used by Arsenal Football Club as one of the gifts in their membership pack for the 2010/2011 season. As such many fans will now own a copy. For those who don't I recommend this as money well spent.
