An anthology of writings about soccer from the archives of "The Observer" newspaper. Many of the pieces nostalgically recall great games and great players of the past, and many take a light-hearted view of the game. The selection reflects the changing attitudes and atmosphere of football. It also illustrates the shift in emphasis within "The Observer", as their coverage of the game increased. The contributors range from respected and well known sports journalists to personalities from other fields - for example, Elizabeth Taylor, Barry Norman, Clement Freud, Kenneth Harris and Philip Toynbee.
