This particular collection contains some beautifully colored photographs of footballers from the English leagues (pictured above). While the names of the clubs are familiar (Wolves, Plymouth, Sunderland, Sheffield United, Huddersfield, Leicester, etc), many of those great clubs aren’t as big or successful as they once were.

The debate about whether a ball has crossed the line or not is nothing new.In the 1932 final, Arsenal had led 1-0 with a Bob John goal, but Newcastle’s equaliser came after a long ball had appeared to go over the goal line, and out for a goal kick. Newcastle winger Jimmy Richardson nevertheless crossed the ball back into play and Jack Allen levelled the match for the Magpies. The referee ruled that that the ball had not gone out of play, even though photographic evidence later showed that the ball had actually crossed the line, and the goal stood.
