The idea of capturing a moment in time is wonderfully emphasised here with players caught in their play. A game that will be recorded and written about but where very few of the people there will still be alive. There is a tiny touching counterpoint to the big match with a girl on her swing alone in her garden. The image has an engaging abstract simplicity with the stand, the crowd and the gardens making simple clean shapes in strong light. It is successful on many levels and is visually engaging in its detail and in its grand scale.
