What Was Football Like in the 1980s? [9781785315534]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
What Was Football Like in the 1980s? provides a fascinating and insightful perspective on the game in a decade when football faced major challenges on and off the field. The author's own memories and experiences are augmented by a wealth of research to bring you the definitive account of the clubs, players, managers, referees, grounds, crowds and competitions that defined '80s football. The book examines the Hillsborough, Heysel and Bradford fire tragedies, along with the increasingly commercialised aspects of the game and the evolution of televised football. The scourge of hooliganism - which reached its height in the 1980s - is also given due consideration. What Was Football Like in the 1980s? is an enthralling and illuminating account of a truly remarkable decade for the beautiful game, penned by a respected football author and journalist. How different was the sport 30 to 40 years ago? Richard Crooks gives you the answer, leaving no stone unturned.
AUTHOR: Richard Crooks has written two critically acclaimed books on football in the 1960s and 1970s, Grandad, What Was Football Like in the 1960s/1970s? as well as his 2018 tome Wednesday v United: The Sheffield Derby. Taking a keen interest in all things football, he has written for newspapers, football magazines and club programmes about the game he loves as well as appearing on television and national radio. He lives in Hertfordshire.
