The Goalkeeper's History of Britain is a captivating mixture of anecdote and observation from the streets of Islington to international arenas, which charts the changing nature of Britain, and the country's peculiar visceral attachment to its goalkeepers. His search takes him from Hackney Marshes to the North Cape, from auditing the public conveniences in the Holloway Road to his selection for a Brazil XI led by Rivelino that had forgotten to include a goalkeeper. Acutely perceived, with all the angles narrowed, this is a delightful blend of personal crusade, intrepid search for the root of the national character, and unique understanding of the country's postwar history. It is the world viewed through the utterly individual perspective of the lone guardian of football's precious estate: the goalkeeper.
