"This is a book about football and Britain, and Britain and football. You can't fully understand one without the other; and if you haven't got a sense of humour it's not worth even trying."

"My name's Tim Marshall and it's been a week since my last match. I support a football club. That's not just five words; it' s a life sentence."

Why do so many of us attend football grounds, rain or shine, week in week out, to bellow at our fellow countrymen?


Football chants are the grassroots of the game, from the Premier League all the way down to the Conference and beyond. They're funny. And they're sharp. And in the UK they run very deep.

In this witty and insightful account, Tim Marshall tells the story of British football through the songs and chants that give it meaning.

This is a book about the fans, written for the fans, with all the flair and banter that bring the beautiful game to life. No other sport has a culture quite like it.

This book is much more than just a list of football chants, and though there's plenty in here, it also looks deeper into the social and cultural history of both chants and the signature tunes which teams play at... More

“One Tim Marshall, There's Only One . . .”

Really enjoyed reading this book and learned lots from it. Felt a bit sorry for the author having to support Leeds but we all have a cross to bear (mine's called Newcastle United).
