Review

'This book deserves to become an essential part of any proper football fan's collection' SPORTSPAGES 'Robinson's work is essentially joyous and often very funny.' TIME OUT 'Robinson seems incapable of producing a banal image. Evocative and dazzling, the book provides genuine insights into the world's most popular sport.' THE INDEPENDENT 'Robinson's photos perfectly capture the many facets of our game and shed new light on football.' FIFA MAGAZINE 'Robinson has succeeded brilliantly in capturing the humanity of the world's game.' LOS ANGELES TIMES 'This book quite simply is the best compilation of football imagery I have ever seen.' SHOOT MONTHLY

From the Inside Flap

An outstanding collection of unique and unseen archive photography from the 1966 World Cup, '1966 Uncovered' captures the distinctive flavour of the tournament both on and off the pitch.
The book opens with interviews with Sir Bobby Charlton and Franz Beckenbauer, in which they relive their memories of the 1966 tournament, exchange views on the world of football and give their last word on England's controversial third goal in the final.
Five main chapter follow the tournament around the country from the regional group stages in the North-East, Midlands, North-West and London, to knock-out stages and of course the final. Along the way, Harry Pearson's revealing text captures the particular charm of the times and of the tournament, and the outstanding collection of images brings the event to life in a new, insightful and thought-provoking way.
A specially written afterword by Alan Bennett completes the book - a characteristically telling piece by one of the defining figures of the English cultural landscape over the last 40 years.
From the giant-killing North Koreans to the tears of Eusebio, from the theft of the Jules Rimet trophy to Bobby Charlton's semi-final strikes - all the drama of 1966 is captured and uncovered in a book that will captivate those who remember the event itself and the generations of football fans who have grown up enthralled by the legacy it created.
