This eighth edition includes quotes from everyone -- Shakespeare to Shankly, Camus to Cantona, Busby to Beckham -- who has made an apt, pithy or comical comment about football. And not just footballers and managers either; fans, pundits, groundsmen, directors and wives all get to have their say. Every subject is covered -- from tactical debates to changing lifestyles -- to produce a sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking commentary on the game. Anyone who thought "sick as a parrot" and "over the moon" was as profound as it got, will be pleasantly surprised by the elegance and insight on display. Contributions include gems from all the old masters: Cloughie, Tommy Docherty, Jimmy Greaves and George Best. And new quotes from the likes of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho, Ian Holloway, Rafa Benitez, Delia Smith and Simon Jordan.
