I found the history of how footballers were treated in those days incredible! Brown paper bags, houses for free (until you became surplus to requirement) and the liberties taken by the owners incredible.
It's a different world, both socially and commercially - the tale of the FA Cup be bought home just wouldn't happen in todays world.
It's a fascinating insight in the 'old' world of professional football and how footballers were worshiped and taken advantage of all a the same time.
Buy it and enjoy it.
The written style is great and the honestly of opinions based on practical experiences of the author on what it was like to grow up in the family of a prominent football very revealing
I honestly would recommend this book to any person interested in football from all its aspects - it is certainly not the highly vetted and tabloid book which is just trying to make money from gullible people
Excellent - thank the author if you ever have a chance
I have always liked Gary Imlach on TdF and similar and found this book an enjoyable read. Anyone wanting to know what football was like before the abolition of the maximum wage should read this book. A time when footballers played not for the rewards but for the love of the game
