Book Description

1 Oct 2007
Footballers are often maligned for their intelligence but no-one can dispute that they have provided some of the funniest quotes (intentionally or not) in the history of sport - and "Pulled Off at Half-Time" is the ultimate collection of these hilarious comic offerings. The title, inspired by a famous Rodney Marsh quote too risque to repeat here, sets the standard for the 1000 quotes from and about the most famous names in football.

5.0 out of 5 stars A female customer 2 Dec 2007
This book had me in tears of laughter and I don't know much about football. Every household should have one of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital for any football fan 11 Mar 2013
The only con for this is that we need a new revised edition as there have been plenty of more gaffs in the world of football since 2007 - just look at chelsea they've been through so many recently (sorry couldn't resist that one)

Needless to say you will enjoy this book of "wit and wisdom" some greater than others but it is still ageless and a great book to dip in and out of for "jovial inspiration."
