Great decision Ref!,
This review is from: You are the Ref: The Ultimate Illustrated Guide to the Laws of Football (Hardcover)
For generations, young and old have enjoyed the "You are the Ref". It is as much part of the football fan's life as Shoot magazine, Match of the Day, disappointing World Cup campaigns and dodgy refereeing decisions....or are they?????
Some of these have now gone, some are mere shadows of nostalgic dreams, but "You are the Ref" continues its basic quest:
1) Here is what happened
2) What Decision would you Give?
3) Are you Correct?
The Answers are given by Former FIFA Ref Keith Hackett, the Questions are illustrated by the Master Trevillion using current star players and coaches as well as the Legends of former years.
There are additional background chapters on the Laws of the Game; the roles, duties and demands on the match Officials and even a chapter on how to "Draw like Trevillion" - as if it were that easy.
What I like about this book is that the authors have kept what is good and added items that get you thinking. It is for the current fan, the nostalgic romantic, and can be shared and enjoyed by all ages.
