Product description


"An honest and knowledgeable account. Perfectly captures that turbulent and transitional period. Will bring memories of Admiral kits and curly perms flooding back, but this is more than just a nostalgia trip; it's a thorough and detailed examination of a period in the game's history which is so often overlooked. Fine work." --The Sportsman.com

"How England's performance at the 1982 World Cup in Spain signalled their emergence from the wilderness." --Backpass

"Impressive. There's plenty to enjoy and recall here. Countless books have been written concerning the England's team's history, but little has been devoted to the Greenwood era. This book puts that right and gives long overdue attention to England's return to international football. 'Reverend Ron' would have given it his blessing." --EnglandMemories.com
