This review is from: The Anatomy of England: A History in Ten Matches (Paperback)
Football books I've ever read. Far more accessible than 'Pyramid' and a very clever way to analyse the performance of England over the years- look at the actual matches and ignore conventional wisdom and conjecture.
I must admit I found the descriptions of the games I actually remember (1982 onwards) to be the more interesting but that's just me.
Wilson has gone for an interesting selection of games, not necessarily the obvious ones.
Anyone who has a interest in this history of the national team should enjoy this, although some may be put off by his rather intellectual and anylitical approach to the game...if they're used to reading nothing but Daily Star match reports.
