Description

Ten years in the making, DRIBBLE! is an A-Z of credulity-twanging facts and stories that includes: definitive explanations of everyday phrases such as 'keep your shape' and 'low centre of gravity', a complete guide to becoming a terrace wit, how Alex Stepney broke his jaw by shouting, why the old-fashioned British centre-half is like a red squirrel and hundreds of other fantastic tales from what Pele once memorably dubbed 'My bloody job'. DRIBBLE! addresses key hitherto ignored aspects of our national game, for example the relationship with Country and Western music and its long tradition of football-related songs. Jonny Cash dubbed himself 'The Man in Black' in homage to his idol, referee Arthur Ellis, and 'I Walk the Line' is arguably the greatest song ever written about the life of an assistant referee. DRIBBLE! will be every football fan's must-have book this Christmas.
