Those feet by David Winner


4 star

OK, it’s about football and there is perhaps a little too much cod social anthropology in there (particularly in relation to Victorian values) but this is just a really cracking book about English football (and it is pretty definitively English – Scottish and Welsh to follow I trust). There are some great insights in here both historical and practical (boots and pitches) which ultimately serve to explain the otherwise inexplicably elevated positions of Allardyce and McClaren.
