All the joys and frustrations of football are captured in this impressive collection from many of Britain's best 20th century poets. Covering the whole period of modern football "Never Mind the Ball" moves from the earliest poem written about football to the contemporary, with verses celebrating the talents of modern legends like Kevin Keegan and Kenny Dalglish. Proving that football is not just a lad's game, many of the poems are by women including Sarah Wardle, one-time poet-in-residence for Tottenham Hotspur, and die-hard Liverpool fan Parry Maguire. These alternately sad, uplifting, frustrating and laugh-out-loud funny poems celebrate the fans, the players, the managers and the teams making a brilliant collection which sums up the best and the worst of football spirit.
