Description

The best chants, the funniest nicknames, the greatest headlines and enough little-known facts to keep the average football supporter entertained and entertaining for several seasons. This is the story of the greatest game on earth, from abandoned matches' to Yeovil Town', via celebrity fans, mascots, punditry and superstitions, written from the fan's point of view and with a separate entry for every club in the English and Scottish leagues. Who cares why, if Torquay United's strikers had been more prolific in the 1950s, England may never have won the World Cup; or where football hooliganism actually began; or who the hell Captain Henry Blythe Thornhill Wakelam is? We do. Because as every true student of the game knows: it's important.

Author Biography

When Saturday Comes is a UK-based monthly football magazine covering all aspects of football culture from a fan's perspective. It first appeared as a fanzine in March 1986, and within two years had developed from a bi-monthly, photocopied, hand-stapled production into a monthly magazine with national distribution. The magazine has always aimed to provide a voice for intelligent football supporters, offering both a serious and humorous view of the sport while covering all the topics that fans are likely to talk about, whether serious or trivial. It is recognized as a source of informed comment on all aspects of British football.
