Description

We Brits are suckers for plucky losers, or so we're told. But even more, we love to see a heroic upset. In Underdog, Tim Quelch calls upon a lifetime of watching struggling teams to show how post-war football's most improbable successes were achieved - all set against a beautifully painted backdrop of lower-division hardship, and changing times.
