To celebrate winning the FA Cup by wearing its lid as a hat - the smell inside a Ford Fiesta carrying five overweight England fans back to Lincolnshire - the nagging feeling of resentment when you let a four-year-old score a goal past you in the garden - the lovely velvety bag the cup draw balls are kept in - every football fan has seen or known these things. But who has the words to describe them? Wouldn't football be more fun if there was a word for surreptitiously timing a pre-match minute's silence, just to see if it's accurate? Or for the feeling of frustration that the half of the league table you catch sight of on TV is never the half with your team in?Shouldn't there be a verb that means: to reduce a 2-0 deficit to 2-1 in injury time, grab the ball out of the net and run back to the half-way line with it in order to get the game restarted as quickly as possible, despite the fact that your actions are completely futile since it's the other team that'll be kicking off again? Yes. There should be. And there is. "Footypedia: The Alternative Football Dictionary" is the hilarious, insightful and essential repository for all those things in football that up 'til now have simply taken too many words to describe. It is the year's funniest, most off-beat and irreverent football book.

“Definitive humour”

A wonderfully witty book, packed with brilliantly observed gems exploring the minutiae of the Beautiful Game. Wry, sardonic, ironic... and very, very funny.
