Fifty Years of Hurt The Story of England and Why We Never Stop Believing 2016 by Henry Winter looks at why the English national football team have underperformed by talking to a number of ex footballers and coaches about why England have a worse record than Spain, Italy, France or Germany Why England don t perform as expected is a bit of a mystery People often point to the longer English season with no winter break and England s failures on penalties in repeated tournaments Also tactical and technical issues are assessed The combination appears to be fairly devastating Winter talks to Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, Ian Wright and so many other people in the book that it does make for a pretty fascinating book for anyone familiar with English football However, it is a bit long and does get repetitive It should be pointed out by the book, but isn t that England s record until Spain and France won World Cups and Euros was actually in the middle of the pack of large European countries and until 2010 had a better record than Spain Indeed, if England could take penalties at World Cups they could well have two wins England has the worst record of penalties in World Cups, having played three and lost three It s worth noting, however, that France s record is 50 50 and Italy have played 4 and lost 3 It should also be said that international football is really hard Really only Germany and Brazil, the largest country in Western Europe and the largest country in South America that have really strong records Only Italy and Uruguay have records that transcend their size And even with Germany and Italy it s worth noting that Italy hasn t won the Euros in almost 50 years and Germany hasn t in 20 There is also some hope at the end of the book as the recent success of the England youth team are discussed There is also some hope in terms of fixing things that are not working Germany lost a penalty shootout in 1976 and then got organised and have not lost one since For anyone interested in football and anyone who is interested in England it s well worth a read A bit context and comparison with other countries and an acknowledgement that football is really hard to do well in might have helped, but the interviews and discussion are genuinely interesting. A great read by one of footballs acknowledged experts, written with verve and panachewonder in 50 years, will somebody be writing 100 years of hurt On current showing I d say yes A Curate s Egg of a book, several excellent chapters and others bland, repetitive and does not provide any reason for the repeated failures Winter skirts the role of the media, does not explain the fascination of friendlies He makes criticisms of managers yet does not offer solutions or when a manager adopts a strategy he agrees with he then criticises that Manager for not giving him the story He obviously has favorite players and avoids saying anything negative about them to ensure he is notexcluded from stories etc that then leads to avoiding the main reasons England have not won anything since 1966, they have not been good enough and other countries have outperformed them. Still hurting after Euro 2016 It s going to be 52yrs of hurt unfortunately But 50 yrs of hurt provides me with enlightenment, because the author of this book cares It s a very good read Thank you Ill shall dream on. An easy read for any football fan Perhaps a little difficult for a football administrator, owner or manager Essential for each and every player. Great book to take on holiday and if your a football fan it s a must to read and is thought provoking. This book covers every aspect of England s failures and I hope people at the FA read this and implement the suggestions made by Henry Winter because they all make sense and will help future managers and players Excellent read Great book. Wasn t what I had expected I thought it would be a chronological account of England post 1966 but is probably a much better book because of that since that would have just repeated stories I already knew This is a thesis and while I don t agree with everything Henry Winter proposes, it is a very entertaining book. England invented football, codified it, became champions of the world inbut humiliatingly then forgot how to play the greatest game of all England took their eye off a ball they arrogantly thought they owned, allowing other nations to run off with it It has beenyears of hurt since Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup trophy at Wembley, and in this groundbreaking book Henry Winter addresses the state England are in on the golden anniversary of their greatest moment Part lament, part anatomy of an obsession, both personal and collective, it analyses the truth behind the endless excuses and apportions the blame for the crimes against English football but is also a search for hope and solutions Fifty Years of Hurt weaves thanexclusive interviews with the biggest names in the game Jack Charlton, Alan Mullery, Peter Shilton, Glenn Hoddle, John Barnes, Chris Waddle, Gary Lineker, Ian and Mark Wright, Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Roy Hodgson with a narrative dissection of the highs and lows of five decades of football And as well as players and managers, Henry Winter talks to the fans, to agents, to officials and to the governing bodies about every aspect, good and bad, of English football to provide answers to the question where did it all go wrong It is a passionate journey by a writer with vast personal insight into the national team, with unprecedented access to all areas of the game, but also by a fan who wants his England back Theyears of hurt must end
