9780091928513: Classic Football Debates Settled Once and For All, Vol.1

At last, at long, long last - the award-winning Baker & Kelly bring you the most entertaining, radical and unreliable football book ever published. It is full of facts, near facts and 'facts'. The Two Dannys intend to argue the toss, spill the beans and heave the talcum* about everything and anything from the game's biggest questions to some more middling posers right down to stuff they have frankly invented themselves.

Which clubs has the handsomest fans? Who is the greatest player of all time? Pele? Maradona? Puskas? Rougvie? Have foreign players helped or hindered the English game? Well, Marco Boogers, well? Which was the most tip top ever World Cup? (the answer to which will reference Baker & Kelly's own personal adventures at each tournament, which, while narrowing it down, makes for crackerjack reading). Who was the greatest football dad, Fred Baker or Andy Kelly? What was it really like to hang out with Paul Gascoigne back in the day?

And that's it. A cornucopia of footballing fun and well-crafted wisdom that is certain to make the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Shortlist** and sell like beer-flavoured crisps. Who wouldn't want this book on their roster, except maybe Dick Rowe?***

Baker & Kelly: Sometimes right, sometimes wrong - but always certain.

*A new expression we are hoping to popularise.

** Danny Kelly is a permanent member of the William Hill judging panel

***The Decca executive who turned down The Beatles
