Description

A quirky collection of true stories from the stranger side of the Beautiful Game, including a one-man team, freaky weather conditions, ludicrous scorelines and all manner of off-pitch shenanigans.

'It's a funny old game.' The world's favourite sport has certainly given us its fair share of strange moments, and this absorbing collection gathers together the best of them, from more than a century of the beautiful game. From Blackburn Rovers' one-man team to Wilfred Minter's seven-goal haul in which he still ended up on the losing side, here are goals and gaffes galore drawn from all levels of the footballing world, whether high-profile internationals or the lowest tiers of domestic football. The stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true.

Revised, redesigned and updated for a new generation of football fanatics, this book is the perfect gift for the soccer obsessive in your life.
