Example: What was the longest amount of stoppage time added to a game? Several amusing examples of eccentric referees and lengthy games are given, including Welsh ref Clive Thomas once adding three-quarters of an hour to a junior game played on a hill because "every time the ball went out of play it rolled down the mountainside".
There's also proper discussion on topics such as who invented 4-4-2 as well as a hilarious account of former Newcastle striker John Tudor's bizarre pre-match ritual.
It will keep football fans old and young (my 13-year-old son loves it) happy for hours.
Well researched and entertainingly written.
Fun to read and informative.
