IT’S that time of the year, when I have a new sports book out just in time for Christmas. For 2014 it’s Legends – a visual celebration of 40 of the finest domestic footballers to grace the English league in the post-war era.

Part of the highly popular When Football Was Football series, it’s an unashamedly nostalgic look at some of the great names of the game. And not simply the best players, but the most compelling, charismatic, and captivating characters – from Best to Bowles, Moore to Matthews, Greaves to Gascoigne.

There are full profiles, stats and facts on each player and a host of photos drawn from the brilliant Mirrorpix archive. Many of the colour and black-and-white pictures show each player behind the scenes, and away from the action, showing then in a unique light during their heyday.

  • Legends is priced £25 and available from Haynes publishers and all good high street and online bookstores.
