    Description: Half-and-half scarves? VA Rs? England winning penalty shoot-outs? Modern football can be baffling. But if you're contemplating throwing it all in for the simpler pleasures of quantum mechanics, don't despair just yet: help is at hand. In Goalless Draws, David Squires unpicks the modern game with an unmissable selection of his Guardian football cartoons from 2014 to the 2018 World Cup. From the ever-dizzying managerial roundabout to the absurdities of the transfer window, and from the annual tradition of poppygate to the 'stable genius' of Jose Mourinho, the result is a riotous reminder of all the pitfalls of the modern game, as well as everything that keeps us coming back for more.

  • Waterstones You're Better Than That!

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Football is our game - the game we all adore. As a player and pundit I've seen and experienced plenty of the good, the bad and the ugly. And let's get face facts - there is still plenty of the bad and ugly. Our game can be so much better, and in this book I'll tell you just how - ruffling a few feathers along the way in search for the whole, unvarnished truth. This is my quest to right football of its wrongs. Chris sets his sights on 25 aspects of the modern game that need fixing. Ridiculous rules, idiotic behaviour, stupid decisions - no subject is out of bounds. From diving players to abusive fans, from feckless agents to the dreaded VAR, from the standard of referees to the lunacy of the managerial merry-go-round, Sutton leaves no stone unturned. In his trademark tell-it-like-it-is style so loved by the football public, no quarter is given either. As a former top-level pro player with a 16-year, trophy-laden career behind him, Chris knows the game from the inside out. Now observing from the commentator's perch, his perspective is shot through with experience, passion and occasionally a little anger. Sutton is a man on a mission, determined to get under the skin of the game he loves and to call out exactly what's going wrong.

  • Waterstones I'll Tell You What..

    Price: £8.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: A brilliant take on the modern game - Robbie tells it like it is' Rio Ferdinand Robbie Savage is one of Britain's most recognisable football pundits. Incisive, forthright and bold, Savage never holds back where the beautiful game is concerned. No Premier League footballer has ever divided opinion quite like Robbie Savage. Mr Marmite, as he was often known (among other things), rampaged his way through almost 350 games in the Premier League and along the way picked up more yellow cards than Gary Lineker has crisps and more enemies than Joey Barton and Neil Warnock put together. In his explosive new book, I'll Tell You What., Savage lifts the lid on all aspects of the modern game. Managers, players, the Premiership, the European game, the FA Cup, kids' football, and pushy football parents are just a few of the topics that Savage takes on in his inimitable provocative style. Robbie tells us why:* Brian Clough, not Sir Alex Ferguson, is the best Manager the world has ever known· * As a player, he would have complimented any one of Jose Mourinho's teams· · * Vanity should not be confused with 'Good Grooming'· * You simply can't knock on Mark Hughes' door and invite him for a game of golf - even if he invites you· * Drinking wine does not win you football matches· Coaching badges are ridiculous· * He could never become a manager. Or could he?· * Football is easy· * Good manners should come before diamond earrings· * The League Cup has the edge over the FA Cup Robbie Savage's straight-talking common sense is only the start of it. I'll Tell You What is a modern-day guide to life, and should be read by anyone who has an interest in anything at all, especially football. Few may actually agree with him, but everyone listens.

  • Waterstones Beastly Fury

    Price: £15.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Footeballe is nothinge but beastlie furie and extreme violence, wrote Thomas Elyot in 1531. Nearly five hundred years later, the game may still seem furious and violent, but it has also become the most popular sport on the planet. This is the story of how the modern, professional, spectator sport of football was born in Britain in the second half of the nineteenth century. It's a tale of testosterone-filled public schoolboys, eccentric mill-owners and bolshy miners, and of why we play football the way we do. Who invented heading? Why do we have an offside law? And why are foreigners so much better than us at the game we invented? Based on exhaustive research, Beastly Fury picks apart the complex processes which forged the modern game, turning accepted wisdom on its head. It's a story which is strangely familiar - of grasping players, corrupt clubs and autocratic officials. It's a tale of brutality, but at times too, of surprising artistry. Above all it's a story of how football, uniquely among the sports of that era, became what it is today - the people's game.
