The words painstaking and research sum this up. But not only does it have tons of fantastic football facts, anecdotes and curiosities but it is written properly and entertainingly too by two eminent football journalists and writers. What more could you want?
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.

This is an excellent read with a wealth of information.Facts ranging from the fastest ever goal scored to what is the strangest sending off? It will keep you entertained for hours on end and will answer all the questions that you've ever wanted to ask about the beautiful game.I can't recommend it highly enough.
