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



    In the winter of 2016 Simon Hughes began a journey through English football’s most successful region, meeting the players, the managers, the chairmen and owners that shape the mood of a changing time. From the Premier League to grassroots, in On the Brink, Hughes examines how the landscape of the game across the north west is shifting: how geography explains the way things are; how industry defines identity; how money threatens existence – and what Brexit might mean for the future.
