5.0 out of 5 stars The fascinating rise of the Toon army., 14 Nov 2012
This review is from: When The Magpies First Flew: The Early Years Of Newcastle FC (Kindle Edition)
As a Newcastle fan this book on the history of the magpies jumped out at me. Brian Belton does an excellent job of not only recanting the exploits of the early days of football in Britain but also gives great historical context as to how the country was changing. He describes in great detail the different Newcastle teams and the characters present within the teams and how the differ so greatly to the modern footballers of today (perhaps we need more of these old fashioned players back). The precarious rise and fall of different local teams paint a vivid picture of the unstable beginnings of association football and how the teams needed to unite to avoid their downfall is a wonderful story of the rise of football and the makings of the great football club that Newcastle United now are.
