The greatest football quotations collection ever, now in its ninth edition. This compilation includes quotes from everyone - Shakespeare to Suarez, Camus to Cantona, Busby to Beckham - who has made an apt, pithy or comical comment about football. And not just footballers and managers either - fans, pundits, groundsmen, directors and wives all get to have their say too. Every subject is covered, from tactical debates to changing lifestyles, to produce a sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking commentary on the game. `My players are always the best players in the world, even if they aren't' - Jose Mourinho `He was a quiet man, Eric Cantona, but he was a man of few words' - David Beckham `Sometimes when you aim for the stars you hit the moon' - Ian Holloway
