Synopsis

Arthur Hopcraft's wonderful study of the game he adored remains, despite its age, one of the finest pieces of writing on the game ever produced. Written as the game entered a pivotal age with the rise of true superstars, like George Best and just 2 years after England had won their World Cup it offers the modern fan an incredible insight into how football was changing and starting out on the road to its current model. With interviews with such luminaries as Ramsay, Charlton, Lofthouse and Busby it is an unsurpassed gateway to a golden age of football. A book every football fan should own, football’s finest masterpiece.
