Fabulous book from the proprietors of the brilliant monthly magazine 'When Saturday Comes' which is the the great monthly read for us folk who love the game but loathe the Premiership and the ridiculous antics of overpaid vacuous oafs that seem to increase in number every season.

Actually although it has loads of vintage pics the text detail is phenomenal have been reading it for 4 weeks & still only a third of the way
through.The mix of old articles when players were actually contributing to own communities &ran sports shops or market gardens after training are great.( e.g.Chelsea's star player Roy Bentley in the late 1950's had a summer job in a London stationers shop every year to supplement earnings and give him a post retirement football skill) . Complemented by modern editing/ analysis of the post WW2 period to
the 1980s the book works superbly

Just the tonic needed for next time some boneheaded suited Sky pundit (who has aided the Murdoch ruination of the peoples game ) tells
all and sundry "It's a Premiership record " as if football didn't exist before 1992...........

If you like football and nostalgia then you'll love this. Perfect present for Dads and Uncles and even for kids to remind them that there was a time before the Premier League and Monday Night Football meant getting your hands on the latest issue of Shoot! Football may not have been live then but it felt much more alive.

Made my 68 year old father very happy when he got this, he is not a keen reader, but he hasn't put this down yet, maybe because it has pictures :-), very nostalgic. Feels really substantial and well put together.

If you are fed up with all the money swilling about in the Premiership buy this book and travel back to the 1950/1960's with this book. There are some great photos of real football heroes, honest players and great articles and write ups. A real treat.

A wonderful nostalgic book for any football fan who enjoys remembering the days when football was about football and not a business corperate for the fat cats.
