Customer Review

9 May 2018
Tom Williams has come up with a book, Do You Speak Football, that is an excellent toilet read for many. It is a book that you can dip in and out of, that is very funny while at the same time is rich in detail. This is one of those quirky books that comes along every so often and that is highly addictive.

Within the covers of this book there are over 700 terms from somewhere close to 89 countries and is a definitive guide to the global language of football. Tom Williams has compiled one of the most fascinating compendium of facts and weird facts as well as words that are used to describe the beautiful game of football from around the world.

One of my favourite players, Sergio Aguero would be described in Germany as Knipser who has scored in the past a lupenreiner Hattrick. Or I could describe David Silva as having a Zauberfuss, who completes many zukerpass. That is just in German!

As a Marwaha who loves seeing a jahfali in Arabic or in zona cesarini or plain English a goal in Fergie time, who doesn’t love a goal then.

This is a book that will be constantly referred to, that has the ability to always raise a smile. Football is well known as the beautiful game around the world but has a language unto itself in every country. This is an excellent little book, viva la football as we say in Manchester
