Studs! is without doubt the Bobby Moore of football books ? unbeatable. No, make that George Best ? it?s supremely entertaining as well. An essential purchase for any footie fan, young or old, the book is packed full of everything that made the game fun to watch back in the 60s, 70s and 80s ? though not always for the right reasons. With full colour photos showing off the nation's finest footballers in all their garish glory, and features including Worst Haircut, Most Ludicrous Hobby, Most Unconvincing ?Out on the Town? Moment, Tackiest House and Most Contrived PR Stunt, Studs! is a banker of a home win.
