9780091959678: The Book of Football Quotations

The greatest quotable reference the game has ever had.
     Now in it's eighth edition, this compilation 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, George Best and the best of the very latest wit and wisdom to be caught in print or on tape.
