9 September ~ The book reviews from WSC 283 are online now. There's Chris Kamara's autobiography – "an unbelievable dog's dinner" – and how he responded to casual insults from Princess Margaret. From Bovril To Champagne, a book about FA Cup finals, is "a little too ready to condemn the 1970s". "Who's to say platform shoes will seem any more ridiculous than Twitter in 30 years?" A Sunderland supporter explains exhaustion with a famous Cup win: "The legend of 1973 has allowed the club to be patronised as plucky underdogs ever since." And an "affable" biography of Joe Mercer "evokes a very different football world, such as Mercer first getting the Arsenal armband because regular captain Les Compton is otherwise engaged keeping wicket for Middlesex".
