Herbert Chapman on Football


Originally published in 1934 this is a facsimile with new introduction
and previously unpublished pictures

Herbert Chapman is synonymous with the game of football
and is the man who fundamentally changed the face of the sport.

Herbert Chapman was the greatest pioneer

in the history of British football management

and made Arsenal the best side in the country in the early 1930’s,

winning both the F.A. Cup and Division One Title

and defined the role of the modern team Manager.

‘Herbert Chapman stands out as the pioneer who shook British football

out of an age-old slough and was a tireless innovator decades ahead of his time

- a champion of such ground-breaking concepts as floodlights, numbered shirts,

clocks inside grounds, white footballs, team meetings, physiotherapy

and synthetic pitches, to name just a few.

Most progressive of all, at a time when sides were selected

by self-appointed boardroom cabals,

Chapman insisted on total control of team affairs.’

Alex Murphy - The Times 10th January 2004
This is a book that no footballer and no spectator

can afford to be without.
