Reviews

Portrays a lost world of heavy balls, burly strikers, fog-bound pitches, GBP20-a-week wages, and teams who would travel to away matches by train and walk to the ground from the station -- Blake Morrison * Guardian *
The book portrays a lost world of heavy balls, burly strikers, fogbound pitches, GBP20-a-week wages, and teams who'd travel to away matches by train then walk to the ground from the station -- Blake Morrison * Guardian *
A marvellous, well-written biography that doesn't shirk from exploring controversial episodes in Sir Stan's life * Press Association *
Henderson succeeds in digging deeper, revealing a more complex character. Fallouts with managers, private dramas. It's fascinating stuff! * Four Four Two *
Conveys the ethos of football in a bygone age, when money was secondary to sportsmanship and even world-famous players would take the bus to the ground -- David Robson * Sunday Telegraph *
