Football porn, Dundee cake, smakfullt illustrert! – what they’re saying about Got, Not Got

It’s been labelled ‘football porn’, ‘a major contribution to football history’ and ‘quite professional’ (by Derek’s brother-in-law). Here’s some more recent opinions from the press… including this month’s Football Trader mag, where GNG is the cover star!
• “A veritable Dundee cake of a book” – Danny Kelly, talkSport
“It’s like finding your old football stickers.” – James Brown, SabotageTimes.com
• I can guarantee that virtually anybody who flicks open this magnificent book will immediately want to have it.” – The Football Trader
“If, like myself, you are an unashamed nostalgia junkie, this book is for you. It’s more than just a book on football collectables, including memories and experiences from the golden age – a time before the FA Premiership and TV money took us through a pound-sign portal and into a parallel, but much less likeable, universe. Some of my favourite experiences/memories are included – I found myself saying either ‘did it’ or ‘remember it’ – and there’s a heck of a lot to choose from. –  Programme Monthly
“Kampprogrammer, fotballfrimarker, fotboltegneseriert… smakfullt illustrert. Just get yourself one!” – PIN magazine, Norway
• “This exquisite book is a homage to the game of 40 years ago – not just the mudheaps and the mavericks but a celebration of its wider culture [which] rises above lazy, modern-life-is-rubbish nostalgia… The design is so sumptuous and the stories so well chosen and written that it’s hard to rsist the authors’ conclusion that much – call it charm, character or even romance – has been lost in the rush for cash. Regardless of whether it really was a golden age, this is a golden volume, as much a social history as a sports book. If you’ve not got GOT, NOT GOT, you’ve got to get it.” – Backpass
In an imaginary Victorian boozer in a sepia-tinted corner of the globe, old blokes gather to talk about football back when it was good. It is a tempting retreat, with some fantastic flagship vehicles such as Got Not Got and 500 Reasons To Love Football using modern media to hark back to a glorious past. – theseventytwo.com
“Got, Not Got is wonderful. I’m feeling quite emotional leafing through it!” – Nick Alatti, The Bridge 102.5FM in the Black Country
• “The real magic is the collection and display of the illustrative material of stickers, badges, programme covers, Subbuteo figures and other ephemera. It is astonishingly thorough, well-presented, inspired and indeed had me going, ‘yes, got, got, not got, forgot, never seen’.” – When Saturday Comes

    Er, Danny Kelly said “cake” – it’s up at the top there.

    The book is very much like a cake in many ways.
