The Cradle of The Game
Want to win the best football book known to man? Then pull up a chair. The Cradle of the Game is the work of a genius, namely Stuart Roy Clarke. "Clarke's love of the game is evident in the evocative, shamelessly nostalgic and absorbing images of place and people in this book" trumpeted The Guardian newspaper. "These mesmerising images will make you remember why you got into football in the first place" declared Sabotage Times. And they're not wrong...
Once you've been invited in through its red gated cover you'll spend hours marvelling at his visual dollops of humour, patriotism, self-deprecation, loyalty…and sense of occasion. "If you don't like these photos you probably don't like football" said European Football Weekends Editor Danny Last. (get on with it - Ed.)

For unbridled joy, tap the name of your team into the search engine on The Homes of Football website and hit enter - you'll be richly rewarded I promise.
To be in with a chance of winning the book (RRP:£35) just post a comment here or on the brand new European Football Weekends Forum, and I'll pick a winner out at random on Sunday July 17.
