ROB JOVANOVIC

The exacting, objective analysis commonly used in coaching is extended to focus on football history – uncovering unexpected truths and exploding myths along the way.

IVAN PONTING
A celebration of the lives of 446 remarkable characters who have loomed large in the collective consciousness of countless football fans. Collected together in this life-affirming commemoration of achievement are players who have touched, entertained, outraged or inspired us; maybe even earned that special love we reserve for our sporting heroes.

GOT, NOT GOT– The A-Z Of Lost Football Culture, Treasures & Pleasures
DEREK HAMMOND & GARY SILKE
Runner-up in the BSBA Football Book of the Year Awards for 2012, Got, Not Got focuses on British football’s apparent lost Utopia of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s – the ‘Golden Age’ of mudbaths and cloggers, of miniature, carpet-level games and imaginary, comic-fuelled worlds. Packed with beautiful images and fan memories of lost football culture.

PICKING UP THE THREADS: The Colours of World Football
JOHN CHANDLER
In Picking Up The Threads, John Chandler has assembled an eye-opening, well researched yet agreeably light-hearted look at the weird and wonderful stories behind the history of 150 teams’ football strips, and how clubs came to choose their characteristic kit. The whys and wherefores will provide any kit aficionado with near endless pub quiz ammo!

THE RIVALS GAME: Inside the British Football Derby
DOUG BEATTIE
Why do football fans decide to support one club over another in cities where intense, deep-seated rivalries exist? What makes them choose: family ties, geography, politics or religion? Beattie spent two years investigating violence, feuding, social unrest and bigotry at matches that are passionate, divisive and vitally important to entire cities.
