I loved it!' David Seaman MBE 'Wilson conducts an engaging romp through sport's more colourful terminology... buy it to be entertained.' Independent 'A cracking read' Daily Express"

I bought the last one, Googlies, Nutmegs and Bogeys for most of my family for Christmas and birthdays and they'll be getting the same this year!
There are many anecdotal sporting books out there but this is the one to choose. I thoroughly recommend it and if you haven't got the first one, buy them both!
