Still, not a bad little book. As others have said, you're not going to learn much new, but for a quid - check the private sellers - it's a decent purchase.
No matter what your age if you love your footie you will love this book.
The history of team colours has been well researched and has been recorded in a very readable form.
The accompanying illustrations take various styles, from high standard traditional thro cartoon to charming blocky computer Lego like figures (Lego couldn't do better than to produce a new range of mini figures taking Chandler's graphics as a template.)
I love it, come Christmas your Dad,Grandad son/grandson,football loving daughter/granddaughter would be delighted to find this nestling among their presents.
