Manchester United is the most recognized sports team in the world, with an audience of millions around the globe, surpassing even the New York Yankees. David Beckham's exploits—and marital woes—are known worldwide. The Football Association of England has become a multi-billion dollar industry. But how did English football become not only the defining sport of the nation but also one of the most successful sports in the world? With The Leaguers, football historian Matthew Taylor tells the story of the early days of professional football in England, revealing the distant origins of today's game. Making extensive use of archival materials from football clubs, unions, and associations, Taylor presents a compelling picture of football teams and players in the early days of the twentieth century, tracing the development of the system of professional teams from the hundreds of town, club, and school teams that dotted the countryside. The top tier of those teams comprised the Football League that by the 1920s was synonymous with the very idea of professional football in the minds of fans and sportswriters alike. The Leaguers illuminates the role played by the Football League—and by successful clubs in the League such as Arsenal and Aston Villa—as the rules, standards, and structure of the modern game were being codified. Taylor also considers the careers and influences of early players, including such well-known names as Billy Meredith, "Dixie" Dean, and Alex James. As football's popularity grew and sports media proliferated, players found themselves becoming national stars, their portraits on cigarette cards bought by fans throughout England. The first full-length history of the early days of the Football League, The Leaguers will be essential reading for football fans who want to know how their favorite sport grew from modest origins to the worldwide phenomenon that is English football today.

The Leaguers offers the first ever examination of the politics of the early football world, from struggles over the finances of the game and the treatment of players to campaigns to popularise football on a national and international basis. Yet the men who ran professional football in England cast the game with a parochialism, an insularity and an arrogant sense of superiority which has persisted to the present day.

This book is about the Football League as an organising body for football in England

This book is about the Football League as an organising body for football in England. It is just over 300 pages long and consists of seven lengthy chapters (30-40 pages) each, plus an introduction and conclusion. To place it on the spectrum from "academic" to "populist" I think I need only say that (i) it has a bibliography and (ii) said bibliography is 18 pages long (I didn't count them but that means 350-400 different sources were used).

Such scenes as those witnessed in Ipswich on the evening of 31 May 1938 had long been commonplace in English football. The role of clubs as focal points for community, town or regional pride was nowhere more clearly demonstrated than in the triumphal return of cup- and teams. Occasions of this kind represented the most intense example of the 'periodic affirmation of collective identity' that was apparent in the mainly working-class support of the local club.
