The cult book of the cult TV show,
This review is from: Jelleyman's Thrown a Wobbly: Saturday Afternoons in Front of the Telly (Hardcover)
If, like me, you're both a football fan and a Sky Sports subscriber, you'll probably be familiar with Soccer Saturday (at six hours, the longest regular live show on British TV). In this book, Jeff Stelling lifts the lid on the magic box and reveals the secrets behind the show and its panel of ex-player pundits. It's revealing (lots of genuinely interesting behind-the-scenes stuff), refreshingly frank (Stelling isn't afraid to point out the weaknesses and foibles of his fellow panellists), and frequently laugh-out-loud funny.
Jeff Stelling is a broadcasting god, presiding over six hours of unscripted mayhem every Saturday with wit, preternatural cool and some genuinely awful puns (the book's title is but one of many). He's deservedly a cult hero to footy fans everywhere, for whom this book is a must-read.
