Football evokes passion on the scale of religious fanaticism and this book captures the essence of football club loyalty.
The Beautiful Game evokes passion on the scale of religious fanaticism and this book oozes the essence of football club loyalty and hero worship, captures and replays breathtaking and memorable goals and witnesses dastardly fouls and controversial send-offs.
It's also a celebration of the football ephemera - colourful scarves, treasured programmes, proudly worn rosettes - that identifies teams and supporters.
Archive photographs present a gallery of the game's best-loved players, iconic managers and the fervour of their adorning fans. "50 Years of Football in Focus" is a fascinating, quirky, idiosyncratic and intimate snapshot of the past 50 years of British football, selected from the Offside Sports Photography collection by a leading sports photographer.
