  • Heart-crackingly nostalgic

    The Times
  • Spellbindingly evocative ... an unforgettable homage not only to his father but to his flat-capped generation of ye grand olde days of thud and mud and Saturday's teatime urban gloaming.

    Observer
  • Pitch perfect … This marvellous and affecting book, which is about love and fatherhood and history and manners as much as it is about football … Hamilton is a first-rate pen-portraitist.

    Spectator
  • Hamilton wrote two of the best sports books of recent years, on Brian Clough and the cricketer Harold Larwood ... a fine collection of vignettes ... make this another winner.

    Sunday Times
  • Hamilton takes us on a hugely enjoyable nostalgia trip...a moving depiction of how football can bind together a family.
