Got, Got, Got to read this!,
This review is from: Got, Not Got: The A-Z of Lost Football Culture, Treasures and Pleasures (Hardcover)
As a self-confessed football nut and nostalgia junky, I waited eagerly for this book to drop through my letterbox. I wasn't disappointed. Visually rich and crammed full of fabulous artifacts from my youth Got, Not Got was a complete and utter joy from start to finish.
The nostalgia seeps from the pages, bringing back memories of lazy afternoons waiting for Final Score to come on the telly so I could update my League Ladders. It also includes memorabilia that I'd not thought of for decades - in the pre-internet age, getting hold of a set of stamps with footballers'on from somewhere far off like Equatorial Guinea was like winning the lottery!
This fantastic book does through photos and images what the equally excellent Modern Football Is Rubbish: An A-Z of All That Is Wrong with the Beautiful Game does with words - it allows me to wallow in the nostalgia of my youth. Got, Not Got is a 'must have' Christmas present for any middle-aged football fan. Buy it!
