    Great ideas here. If you want to move onto actual books with really engaging football content, but aren't just about football (so have something for the whole class), then the two Johnny Mackintosh books by Keith Mansfield have worked for me. I teach year 8. Mainly, the books are adventure stories, but a subplot in Johnny Mackintosh and the Spirit of London is Johnny's place in the school team (and his performance in the County Cup final), while he struggles to maintain that place in the second book, Johnny Mackintosh: Star Blaze. A definite, strong recommend.
