One of the best football books I’ve ever read, and I hadn’t even heard of Erbstein before I read this! An absolutely fascinating biography of one of the sport’s great innovators whose life was tragically cut short in the Torino Superga air-crash.
I particularly enjoyed the author’s style which skilfully avoids the common pitfalls of cliche which are often found in sports writing. It’s obviously been meticulously researched without ever seeming dry or academic. Highly recommended to anyone with even a vague interest in the history of football. A great story, well told.
