Product description

Review

"'The daddy of male loo-reading books... Bob Wilson's compendium should be sent out by right to every lad when he reaches the age of assent, in exactly the same way centurions receive a telegraph from the Queen' Scotland on Sunday 'Brilliant. 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"

About the Author

Bob Wilson is the veteran presenter of nine World Cups, Grandstand, Football Focus, Sportsnight and Match of the Day, and was goalkeeper for Scotland and Arsenal. His Willow Foundation charity, set up in memory of his daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31, receives royalties from the sale of his books.

Format: Hardcover
Once again the perfect bite size summaries and anecdotes of all those quirky names and phrases. An absolute must for the sports enthusiast - seated or otherwise. Easy to pick up and dip into or spend an hour or two finding the answers to those sporting questions you knew you always thought you knew. Smart in look and feel as well as content.

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!

I grew up watching Bob on Grandstand and as a Spurs fan, it pains me to say I always thought he was great. It pains me just as much to say that his book is excellent as well. It's highly entertaining and also brilliant in that I've already nailed what I'm going to give my brothers and dad for Christmas and it's only September!
