Or is now better than back then?

Are we living through a golden age of great clubs, great games and great players, or is it worse today than it's ever been?

Are we paying for fantastic entertainment, or are we being sold an inferior product for ever more money?

The Premier League is marketed to us as the best league in the world, but is it really?
Are the players better, fitter and more skilful now than at any time in the past? And what do those words even mean?
Was football more popular, were more goals scored, did more teams win more trophies?

After buying a house thanks to his wildly important best seller, 'Can We Have Our Football Back?' Johnny returns to apply his unique and idiosyncratic analysis of football past and present to decide once and for all where the truth lies. And along the way he asks a top Scottish writer when the best period for football north of the border was.

This is a discussion that is philosophic as much as it is factual, as Johnny finds out, once and for all, if football really was better in the old days.
