"500 Strangest Football Stories" reaches way back to the early days of the game to introduce you to characters of a bygone era who played football whilst carrying umbrellas and used their moustaches to indicate their feelings; takes you abroad to discover the Spanish son who takes his deceased Dad to matches - in a makeshift urn; the Italian match which sparked a revolution, and comes bang up to date with details of the Premiership player who 'killed off' both of his grandmothers in a desperate attempt to provide an excuse for missing a game!
