The definitive story of the father of modern football, Herbert Chapman. Herbert Chapman, the boss of the all-conquering Arsenal team of the 1930s, was the father of modern football management. A relative journeyman as a player, he moved into the dugout aged 29 with Northampton Town, before building a multiple-title-winning team with Huddersfield in the 1920s. It was at Arsenal, however, where Chapman would leave an indelible mark on the landscape of football. Patrick Barclay's poignant and detailed biography weaves Chapman's story into the momentous times through which he lived, including the tragedy of the First World War, the subsequent Depression and the rise of fascism. Deeply influential on Arsenal successors such as George Graham and Arsène Wenger, he also pioneered changes in the game's scenery and tactical approaches. As Sir Matt Busby later remarked, Herbert Chapman changed the game of football.

A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. PUBLISHED IN ASSOCIATION WITH LEEDS UNITED TO COINCIDE WITH THE CLUB'S CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS. 100 Years of Leeds United tells the story of a one-club city and its unique relationship with its football team. Since its foundation in 1919, Leeds United Football Club has seen more ups and downs than most, rising to global fame through an inimitable and uncompromising style in the 70s, clinching the last Division One title prior to the Premier League's inauguration in 1992, before a spectacular fall from grace at the start of the 21st century. United remains one of the best supported – and most divisive – clubs in football, with supporters’ clubs dotted across the globe. In 100 Years of Leeds United, Chapman delves deep into the archives to discover the lesser-known episodes, providing fresh context to the folkloric tales that have shaped the club we know today, painting the definitive picture of the West Yorkshire giants.

The 1930s saw the birth of the football idol - prototype for today's powerful media sport stars. The players of the 1930s were the first generation of professionals, yet until recently the life and careers of footballers of this generation has been little studied. In 1930s Britain, football became increasingly commercialized, and the rise and development of both local and national media enabled players to become widely recognized outside of their immediate local context for the first time. Tracing the origins, playing careers and 'afterlives' of several First Division players of the era, Graham Kelly's revealing history explores the reality of living in Britain between the wars and draws interesting comparisons with lives of the modern football hero today.

Highbury - citadel for Arsenal Football Club for over 90 years and home to the memories of over 10,000 matches. In this informative book, Bruce Smith exhaustively chronicles the life and times of the Gunners' home ground in north London, from the site's humble beginnings as college playing fields to its present status as one of the most recognisable pieces of football real estate in the world. The book highlights how pioneering architects such as Archibald Leitch, Claude Waterlow Ferrier and William Binnie played a vital role in shaping Highbury and how other personalities, including Sir Henry Norris, A.G. Kearney, Herbert Chapman and David Dein, have influenced its development. Highbury documents the important role and influence of the Football League, Premiership, FA Cup and European competitions in the ground's colourful history and, in addition, details the England internationals, representative encounters, FA Cup semi-finals and European play-offs which have taken place there, as well as the legendary Cooper v. Clay World Championship bout of 1966. Featuring many personal photographs by the author and others from the archives, Highbury is a timely tribute to an iconic structure that was part of the fabric of sporting history for almost a century.

The Man Who Made A Football Club Sir Matt Busby, who took Manchester United to unprecedented glory before seeing the club through profound tragedy, created the global entity that spreads from Old Trafford today. A player with Manchester City and Liverpool before the Second World War, Busby remained at the forefront of football through four decades and made an extraordinary contribution to the game in terms of both style and substance. In this definitive biography, Patrick Barclay looks back at Busby’s phenomenal life and career, including the rise of the Busby Babes in the 1950s, the Munich disaster that claimed 23 lives and the Wembley victory ten years on that made United the first English team to win the European Cup. Denis Law, Pat Crerand and such other members of that great side as Alex Stepney, David Sadler and John Aston are among the host of voices testifying to the qualities that set Sir Matt apart. This is the story of one of the greatest figures in football history, and of the making of a legacy that will last for ever.
