Football inspires love and hate in equal measure. It creates sporting moments that live with us forever. But it also offers a unique opportunity to pour scorn, inflict blame, and generally get angry.
This funny and fascinating collection of `football hates' will ring true with every supporter who both loves the game and hates what some people do to it.
Richard Foster tackles the issues that so incense the ordinary football supporter, from greedy agents to sloppy England performances and from FIFA to diving. The book features contributions from long-suffering fans and well-known personalities, pundits and players such as Pat Nevin, Paolo Hewitt, Clarke Carlisle and Ian Darke.
Richard Foster is formerly of the Financial Times and has written for The Football League as well as a variety of football websites. He also writes on football and other aspects of life for Sabotagetimes.com. He can be found online at www.azfootballhates.co.uk.
