"Who Killed English Football?" is the product of personal research born out of a mixture of curiosity and frustration. This book was prompted by the inexorable decline of English football performance at European and World Cup events.

Analysing the causes of such deterioration, simple but worrying truths are unearthed and laid bare. Club vs Country rivalry, a surfeit of money, a chimaera-like governance, "embedded" media and a foreign player invasion are all contributors to the slow death of the "beautiful game".

There might be a glimmer of hope  ... provided reality is acknowledged and palliative remedies introduced.
