Customer Review

16 June 2018
In Search of the Lost Soul of Football is the sub-title of this fine book, which takes us back to the feudal days of football when players weren’t allowed to earn more than £20 a week and woe betide you if you broke your leg in the Cup Final because there were no painkillers on hand. Through a series of interviews with old players we are given a fascinating and monochrome glimpse of the days when top players travelled by tram to matches along with their fans and lived in the same streets. Evocative, sympathetic and always riveting, this book is a fine counterpoint to the millionaire laden game of today.
