Football: Those Were The Days

Football: Those Were The Days

SKU: 9781907554445

In the good old days of association football there was no such thing as WAGs, the balls were made from rhino hide, and players made their way to the field by tram. And the rudest thing you could say to a referee was, “Hoy, referee! Do you need spectacles?” Those Were The Days: Football journeys back through the photo archives to find photos of prewar football accompanied by a sparkling commentary, delivered in a Pathé news style that wouldn’t go amiss delivered by Mr Cholmondley–Warner (of Harry Enfield fame). Those were the days when you could still smoke while playing center forward, when games often ended 6–6, and a broken leg was no excuse to miss the second half.
