Description

Rhapsody in Blue is a joyous celebration of growing up in the late 1960s and early 70s in the aftermath of England's 1966 World Cup victory. Neil Fitzsimon skilfully transports us to the Stamford Bridge of his youth where he fell in love with Chelsea FC. The book also explores the lost culture of street football, with no referee and no rules.
