Matchday: What Makes Saturday Special? by Chris Green
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Football's matchday has a unique place in British popular culture. For millions of people connected with the 'Beautiful Game', it is a day of ritual and routine, hope and glory, doom and disaster, anguish and joy - sometimes all at once. In Matchday, Chris Green goes behind the scenes to provide a multi-faceted snapshot of modern football. From plush boardrooms to mud-spattered dressing rooms he tells the unfolding drama of a typical football Saturday via an amazing array of characters. The result is a tale, literally, of blood, sweat and tears; a journey stretching to each corner of the country and every level of football - a search for the heart and soul of a national game.
