If you have read his other titles e.g. from the TOP TEN series of books, you will be aware of the way in which MICHAEL COLEMAN puts knowledge across, in a humorous way. This book is no exception.
A colourful, witty cover opens to 143 pages, split over chapters:
1. Introduction 2. Foul football 3. Foul footballers 4. Foul football clubs 5. Foul football competitions 6. Foul foreign football 7. Foul football managers 8. Foul referees 9. Foul fans
'Are you a foul footballer? Of course you aren't otherwise you'd be kicking this book instead of reading it! No, I bet you're somebody who simply enjoys playing the best, the most exciting game in the world. So, what do you like best about playing football? * scoring loads of great goals? * getting in plenty of terrific tackles? * scaring the other team with some dreamy dribbling (not the messy sort)? * walloping fearsome free kicks? * being stamped on, beaten up and generally hacked to bits?
Well, unless you enjoy playing against really foul teams (a team of teachers, for instance) then you probably didn't choose the last option!............. Of course this doesn't mean that you won't meet some pretty foul footballers in this book. You certainly will!....
So start reading ...but if you're reading in class, watch out for your teacher. You don't want to get fouled!'
Black and white illustrations/cartoons, facts and quizzes throughout.
