Oh well, the publication that eventually never hit the shelves, so I thought I’d share it with you on the net.
Foreword by George Best
Legendary George Best, arguably the most talented footballer ever to walk on the face of this planet, made his debut for Manchester United on 14 September 1963 against West Bromwich Albion.
He made a total of 466 appearances for The Red Devils in the League, FA Cup, League Cup and on European level, scoring 178 goals. Best was capped 37 times for Northern Ireland between 1963 and 1974. Nicknamed The Fifth Beatle, George Best personified The Beautiful Game with his dazzling performances, bringing both home and away crowds to his feet.
Ever since I was a kid I have been fascinated by The Beautiful Game. Now we have The Beautiful History, a book that gives us an intriguing and in-depth look in the mystifying world of club emblems, colours and nicknames.
I have worn the shirts of the likes of Manchester United, Fulham, Stockport County and Bournemouth who proudly appear in this book and I have played against a plethora of clubs that also feature in this labour of love. It takes you on a heartbreaking journey of clarifying football issues, questioned daily by many football fans.
