No Sky tv or daft/ uneccessary away kits here !

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...........
