50 YEARS OF SCOTTISH FOOTBALL by John Litster
A MUST-READ BOOK FOR SCOTTISH FOOTBALL FANS THIS CHRISTMAS
From Baxter to Balde, from The Beatles to Bankruptcy
1963 to 2013 described and remembered by John Litster
(It was nearly called Fifty Shades of Green and Blue !)
In 306 pages of text, Scottish football historian and former football club administrator John Litster describes his 50 years of watching Scottish football, his studies of the way the game has developed and is operated, and the changes he has noticed since he attended his first football match on 26th October 1963.
He describes the new experiences he encountered as grounds were visited for the first time ; history-changing matches were attended ; great players and teams were seen ; notable careers were started, and ended. There is coverage of the new influences in the game (agents, internet, television, the Bosman rule, all seated stadia etc) and the waning of the old (Saturday night sports papers, terraces, native Scots in top division and international teams etc)
First hand accounts of several key incidents in the game contribute to this picture of changing times - St Johnstone’s surprise sacking of Alex Totten, Graeme Souness’s row with a tea lady, when Fergie thought Hearts had won the League, and several others.
These stories, personal observations, opinions, constructive criticism and human interest stories are interwoven with a history of Scottish football from 1963 to 2013, packed into 306 pages of text - there are no statistics or photographs.
