Once in a Lifetime (film tie-in): The Incredible Story of the New York Cosmos
Once in a Lifetime (film tie-in): The Incredible Story of the New York Cosmos
by Gavin Newsham
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The inner workings of a team from another planet, 29 May 2006
There are plenty of football books out there that simply rely on facts and readers memories to paint a picture of a successful or memorable period in the history of a club. However, with a cast of World Cup winners taking the lead roles in a script leaden with in-fights, late nights and footballing brilliance, the New York Cosmos transcended sport to become an all-singing, all-dancing point of difference on the sporting landscape of the 1970s. By painting a vivid picture of not only The Cosmos, but also of the political and social changes that framed this era, Newsham has transcended mere sports writing and delivered a classic that will appeal to the connoisseur and curious alike.
