The man who taught us how football should be played.' - Pelé Stanley Matthews was a legend, the first superstar of world football. In this autobiography - completed just before his death in February 2000 - Matthews vividly brings to life some of football's greatest ever matches, offering absorbing personal accounts of the game's greatest players. Here are the untold stories behind many of football's greatest games and characters. The unguarded asides, the camaraderie, the drama and colour are all revealed in this remarkable memoir. Players of the past and present come under his expert scrutiny, and as he highlights the changes that have taken place over the decades, both on the pitch and off it, he sheds a unique and engrossing light on the sport he loves. The Way It Was is the witty, compelling and hugely entertaining portrait of a man who was loved and respected throughout the world. It is a unique look at football from one of its greatest players, and is also essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how football, and society, have changed over the last century. Stanley Matthews was born in 1915 and began his football career at Stoke City. He made his England debut in 1934 and went on to win 54 caps by 1957. He retired from the game in 1965, when he was knighted, then travelled the world as a football ambassador. He died in Newcastle-under-Lyme in February 2000.
