From its working class grass root beginnings, football has gone on to become a worldwide phenomenon that shows no sign of waning. The very mention of the game can instil passion and emotion in even part-time supporters of their team or nation. Massive crowds became the norm and whilst TV for a while reduced this, it was thankfully short-lived as any fan will know there really is no substitute to actually savouring the atmosphere at the ground.

In this book the development of football is charted as the world's favourite team sport. From the founding fathers of the game, through to its emergence on the world stage with the FA Cup and World Cup, to how the game has changed through the years.

There are mini profiles of some of the world's greatest players including Pelé, Bobby Moore, Franz Beckenbauer and Diego Maradona along with the best coaches and managers of both club and international teams. Football was certainly great in its golden era, with all those super memories and long may it continue!
