The Agony & The Ecstasy

This book charts the remarkable rise of the Football League Play-Offs, from their low-key introduction as an anonymous part of a desperate rescue plan to becoming the most lucrative match in global sport. The rich history encapsulates the renaissance of English football from the dark days of the 1980s and covers the trials, tribulations and triumphs of almost one hundred clubs along the way.Often described as the ideal way to get promoted but the very worst way to lose, they can be as cruel to some as they are kind to others. The mixture of emotional highs and lows for managers, players and, most of all, fans is what sets the Play-Offs apart, providing the inspiration for The Agony & The Ecstasy.
