This is a beautifully written book by someone with a real feel for the romance of football. Ivan Ponting understands why George Best was loved and why Cristiano Ronaldo will never be. His descriptions of the careers of players (even the ones you will not have seen even on grimy Pathe newsreels) paint a vivid picture. Ponting does his subjects a great service and any football supporter would enjoy this book.
