About this book
The story of how modern football has changed from being the people's game to an elite multi-million pound business, and what it has lost in the process. In powerful polemical prose, against a backbone of rigorous research and interview, Adrian Tempany deconstructs the past quarter century of English football and examines its place in the world. How did Hillsborough and the death of 96 Liverpool fans come to change the national game beyond recognition? *Also appeared in March Buyer's Notes*
The Hillsborough disaster was broadcast live on the BBC; it left millions of people traumatised, and English football in ruins. This book is about what arrived in the wake of unquestionably the most controversial tragedy in the post-war era of Britain's history.
