Stuart Clarke – More than a match (07-026)



Stuart Clarke – More than a match (07-026)

Hardly a book to read, but certainly a book worth owning. Just a bit bigger than postcards, this book contains 31 pictures of football all around England. One hardly sees the game itself, but mostly the people enjoying it. From a stand full of Sunderland fans staring at the pitch (I remember visiting Roker park myself a decade ago, the picture is from that exact year!), via the girls selling burgers at Tranmere, to the kop in Liverpool. Both top level as lower down the pyramid, every single picture is a treasure. And with John Motson in the snow as a bonus, this book is a valuable piece in my collection of football books.

Stuart Clarke must be a great observer.
