Description

Why is it that Everton are known as 'the Toffees'? And why are Peterborough referred to as 'Posh'? These, and many other fascinating and sometimes obscure football facts, are to be found in this delightful new book which looks behind the scenes to find out the history of the most famous football clubs in Britain today, and find the derivation of their idiosyncratic nicknames. Some clubs have perfectly straightforward ancestry and obvious nicknames, but there are plenty that have very complex histories, and names that seem unfathomable.This book provides all the answers and is packed with detail, stories, fact and fiction, plus plenty of interesting illustrations to bring the story of our football clubs to life. Essential reading for serious historians of our national game, it is also a brilliant treasure trove of information for all lovers of football, past and present. Bound to attract much attention in the year of Euro 2008, this new title will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of football and football clubs in particular.
