The Worst of Football by Nigel Henderson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Subtitled 'From Brawls to Bribery, the Ugly Side of the Beautiful Game', The Worst of Football is one of the best-selling titles in Pitch's popular 'Worst of Sport' series. The book takes a humorous look at the whole catalogue of malevolence, misadventure and madness associated with the sport - corruption, violence, drunkenness, incompetence - on and off the pitch. The Worst of Football gets right under the skin of game: from the superstars to the lowliest fan, the book reveals the true nature of the contest and those who live for it. Presented in loving detail, here are all the very worst elements of football. From the worst imaginable gamesmanship to the worst thrashings and injuries; from the worst missed penalty to the worst instances of cheating, brawling and attempting to set fire to the manager's wife, the book will simultaneously delight and appal any player, supporter or aficionado of the game.
