Excellent football nostalgia
on 9 August 2016
Really enjoyable read with very little to criticise. Davies has excellent access to many of the England players and management that give a unique insight into the tournament. If there was one point to pick on, it would probably be the obsession with tactics. No doubt, the sweeper v 4-4-2 debate was a key discussion at the time but it really is done to death here.
Overall though, well worth buying, although I couldn't help smiling to myself reading the passages towards the end where the author looked forward to England's Euro 92 and World Cup 94 campaigns with such optimism.....hindsight is a wonderful thing!
