It is, without exaggeration, probably the finest football book that I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
As essential piece of British football history for fans of any club. Brillaintly researched and written with an undisguised passion.
The angel is in the detail of such a loving work; you really get to know the players who beat Leeds United at Wembley.
Through sport, quite ordinary folk can attain heroic status. Lance Hardy's entertaining book shows how it happens.
Times have changed but this book is an engrossing reminder for all fans, not just Mackems, of the way it was.
Evoking the atmosphere of a vanished footballing age, this is a fascinating account of a true David and Goliath sporting encounter.
'If you like a fairytale, a story of an underdog or just a great football book, then make sure you pick up this brilliant account.'
