From the publisher:
Modern football is brilliant, and yet it is also utterly rubbish. For every part of the beautiful game that reminds us why we love it, there’s another to drive us up the wall. Half-and-half scarves, designated singing sections, goal music and open letters - the list is endless.
Football’s Flaws & Foibles looks at some of the biggest transgressions and dissects just what lies at the heart of our annoyance. Featuring contributions from Kevin Day, Daniel Storey and more, this book provides moments of catharsis and debate in equal measure. If you’ve ever paid for a plane to fly a banner over a football ground then this may not be the book for you, but for the rest of us this is a place to wallow in collective frustrations.
So if you have ever been irritated, enraged, aggravated or exasperated by the game you love, this book is very much for you.
Richard Foster is a football writer and author of Premier League Nuggets and The Agony and the Ecstasy
