About this product
- DescriptionIn the good old days of association football there was such thing as WAGs, the balls were made from rhi hide and players made their way to the ground by tram. And the rudest thing you could say to a referee was: Hoy, referee! Do you need spectacles? Those Were The Days: Football journeys back through the photo archives to find photos of pre-war footer accompanied by a sparkling commentary, delivered in a Pathe news style that wouldn't go amiss delivered by Mr Cholmondley-Warner (of Harry Enfield fame). Those were the days when you could still smoke while playing centre forward, when games often ended 6-6 and a broken leg was excuse to miss the second half. Find even more humourous stalgia in: When I Were a Lad...(9781907554001), When I Where a School Lad...(9781907554148), When I Were a Nipper...(9781907554360) and Those Were the Days: Golf (9781843400002).
