Football porn. Ditch the other half… What you’re saying about ‘Got, Not Got’

Here’s some more reader feedback on the book Derek’s brother-in-law called “quite professional”. In a pleasantly surprised tone of voice. Please do spread the word!

★★★★★ “The best book about our national game since Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch.” -waterstones.com
“Porn for the football fan.” – foxestalk messageboard post

“Mine just arrived in the post. What an absolutely ****ing beautiful book. And that’s just from five minutes of slightly breathless, foreplay-like perusal.” – GNG blog comment

★★★★★ “A stunning work that captures the heart and soul of football as I knew it when I first fell in love with the game. If you love football on any level then I beg you to buy this book.” – amazon.co.uk

★★★★★ “Social history by stealth” – Amazon.co.uk

“Got, Not Got is top of my Chrissie present list. I wasted a whole afternoon last week after discovering their blog. Ended up 3 hours later trying to recall which Action Transfer sets I’d stolen from our local newsagent in the late 1970′s on this site(actually, most of them).” – Half Man Half Biscuit fan site

“An excellent and unusual new football book.” – FMTTM, Middlesboro fans online

“The must-have Christmas book” – Derby County Card Collection

 “Superb effort, we called squash “slam” round our way and I think that Lawrie Mac drank “Barbican” not Kaliber. My copy arrived on Thursday, ended up going to sleep at 2.30am.” – GNG blog comment

★★★★★ “If you think that football is not what it was back in the halcyon days of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s then like me you will absolutely love this. Since the book arrived I have hardly put it down.” – waterstones.com

“You can smell the pipe smoke, feel the plastic replica kits. It takes you back to the days of footy stickers, crap “rub the back” transfers and to a world of many other things that mean that you’ll have to ditch the other half for an hour or 6.” – foxestalk messageboard post

★★★★★ ”Anyone with sons who like football should get them this and see what it was like when footballers were footballers” – amazon.co.uk

★★★★★ ”More than a football book, it brings back memories of the 1960’s,70’s and 80’s when football was ingrained in everyday life not just a game played by overpaid idiots. I love the poem at the start of the book “Can I have my ball back Mister?” This sets the tone perfectly for a book that looks back affectionately on a better game and time.” – amazon.co.uk
