On the Brink: A Journey Through English Football's North West


    ‘A gifted and knowledgeable writer’ - Neil Jones, The Echo


    Size: 216x138 ISBN: 978-1-909245-60-0 Publication: September 2017



    During the winter of the 2016/17 English season, Simon Hughes began a journey through the country’s most successful football region, meeting the players, the managers, the owners, the chairmen, the directors, the volunteers and the politicians that are shaping the mood of a rapidly changing time. From the Premier League to grassroots, Hughes examines how the football landscape across the north west is shifting: how geography explains the way things are; how industry defines identity; how money threatens existence; what the game really does to people.
