In Praise Of Football

Gabriel Fitzmaurice

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

A fun and accessible book that celebrates the universal language of all types of football.

Here's a collection of poems about points, pints, goals, blockdowns, yellow cards, fans, saves, cheers, fouls, boots, trains, crowds, captains and managers ... You'll also see referees that can't count, magic sponges, useless goalies, lucky half forwards, obsessive parents, supportive families, dream teams, wet Saturdays in February, sunny Sundays in September, rabbits chasing foxes, and a game of two halves in a sport that has been described as 'martial arts for Irish farmers'.

The book also features some of the most memorable quotes in sporting history. A superb selection of poems which, while incredibly diverse, all have an enthusiasm, passion and insight that it is a pleasure to share...
