THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

17 January ~ The book reviews from WSC 299 are online now. Got, Not Got celebrates football culture in the 1960s and 1970s. Roger Titford enjoyed the collection of stickers, badges, programme covers, Subbuteo figures, and thought the book tapped into "the growing quest for a return to football authenticity". Paul Scholes' plainly-titled autobiography Scholes should have been a good read, but his decision to waste 300 pages telling us things we know already made it fairly dull. In All On Red, Frank Gamble provides us with an "original football memoir", according to our reviewer Mark Rowe. And, Chris Hargreaves offers a well-written account of life as a lower-League footballer in Where's Your Caravan. He was quite the journeyman, so fans of at least ten clubs will his find his book intriguing.
