About the Author

The authors Nick and Shaun met at Warwick University, where they occasionally studied History. Most of their time was spent playing football and lounging about reading the Daily Mirror. Nick works as a freelance graphic designer (he designed the cover artwork for Modern Football is Rubbish). Nick studied History and Politics at Warwick University, he then completed an MA in Sociology of Sport at Leicester University's Centre for Research into Sport and Society. This is Nick's second book. In 2002, he wrote Team Shirts to Ticket Stubs: A Visual History of Watford Football Club 1977-2002 which was published by Watford Football Club. Nick is a lifelong Watford fan and, along with Shaun, plays five-a-side football every Wednesday night. Chasing 18-year-old kids around the football pitch makes him feel very old. Shaun works as a manager for McDonalds. Nick and Shaun played in the same football team at university, it took them several months to realise they were actually on the same degree course. Born and raised in Cornwall, supporting Liverpool was the obvious choice. He is now the assistant manager of Cadbury Athletic under-10s. He plays football for the Spleen Team every Wednesday alongside Nick.


"Poignant and thought-provoking book... it strikes just the right tone throughout, somewhere between gentle nostalgia and constructive criticism; has many laugh-out-loud moments yet poses some serious questions..." Jon Crampin, FourFourTwo magazine Yet this is not some hectoring tome lusting after times past, more a joyous romp through the features of the game which inspired a lifelong devotion in the thirty something authors. As such it will provide an ideal Christmas present for any fan over 30, allowing them to while away the festive period in the fuzzy haze of nostalgia.
