This lavishly illustrated book, using photographs from the archives of the Daily Mail, charts the key events in the history of British football, from the time when players wore knickerbockers and tasselled caps, balls had laces and the first GBP1,000 transfer raised a storm, to the game we know today. There is ecstasy, but plenty of agony, too. It is the story of a great unending soap opera, set in the nation that gave the Beautiful Game to the world.
