Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of football. Never again be found wanting when asked what Albert Camus said other famous writers and thinkers opted to play between the sticks , why a rotation system is not to be confused with a revolving door management policy, and why an impressive collection of trophies is no way to describe the perma-tanned WAGs in the directors box. Bask in the admiration of your fellow football lovers as you pronounce confidently on the merits of English pluck over German efficiency , and hold your own against the most tribal of rival supporters. DO SAY It s a simple game; it s just the players that make it complicated. DON T SAY Football s football; if that weren t the case then it wouldn t be the game that it is.

In football, as in so many areas of life, those who can t do, teach, and those who can t teach become England manager. But for those whose capabilities fall below even this basic level, there is nothing left except to write about the game. Accordingly, Mason has penned football articles for a variety of newspapers and magazines, as well as produced documentaries on the subject for the BBC. He had hoped that interviewing players would cause some of their magic to rub off on him. Anyone who sees the look of terror in his eyes whenever he has to kick the ball back to a group of six-year-olds in the park will know that it hasn t.
