When Football Was Football PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

When Football Was Football free pdf It was back in 1884 when a number of young footballers pledged nine pence each to buy a ball and formed Leicester Fosse FC. So began a fascinating story that brings us through to the modern Leicester City Football Club. It is a tale of continued excitement and occasional spectacular success but also battles to survive and give the Midlands city a team to be proud of. This book celebrates the unique history of a club where the one thing that has never been in short supply is the passion of its fans. We recall heroes from the 1920s like John Duncan and Arthur Chandler who both scored six goals in one game, and 1950s star Arthur Rowley whose 44 goals in a season remains a club record. There are tales of European adventures too in the 1960s, as well as during Martin O'Neill's more modern period of success. When Football was Football follows the highs and lows of nearly 130 years of drama, remembers the players, managers, and back room staff from laundry lady to first team coach, and most of all the thousands of Leicester fans who have shared the adventure.
