Description

This eighth edition includes quotes from everyone - Shakespeare to Shankly, Camus to Cantona, Busby to Beckham - who has made an apt, pithy or comical comment about football. And not just footballers and managers either - fans, pundits, groundsmen, directors and wives all get to have their say too. Every subject is covered - from tactical debates to changing lifestyles - to produce a sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking commentary on the game. Anyone who thought 'sick as a parrot' and 'over the moon' was as profound as it got, will be pleasantly surprised by the elegance and insight on display. Contributions include gems from all the old masters- Cloughie, Tommy Docherty, Jimmy Greaves and George Best. And new quotes from the likes of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba, John Terry, Cesc Fabregas, Steven Gerrard, Joey Barton, Jose Mourinho, Ian Holloway, Rafa Benitez, Delia Smith and Simon Jordan. 'Footballers are no different from human beings' - Graham Taylor 'I'm a Nigerian and I will remain a Nigerian until I die' - Kanu 'The girls like Frank Lampard and I'd see something in him if I was that way' - John Terry 'I didn't watch the England v Argent
