Written by comedian and former Match of the Day presenter Kevin Day, Who Are Ya? is a mix of comic observation, (friendly) fan rivalry and quirky anecdote, featuring brilliant celebrity contributions. During his time as a broadcaster, Kevin Day has spoken to thousands of football fans. He has interviewed countless players and managers from across the generations, and he has spent thousands of hours crossing the country on trains, planes, automobiles and coaches, watching football at all levels. This book is the result of that: a tale of being chased down a railway line at Cardiff, an account of interviewing George Best, a story of an 80-year-old lady getting her first Hull City tattoo - quite simply, a tale of football. Who Are Ya? is partly autobiographical and mildly polemical, but mostly it is laugh-out-loud funny. It's also a snapshot of modern football, exploring all 92 English football league clubs. For instance, the chapter on Manchester City will include an angry and bemused look at modern football finances; Chelsea will include a discussion on foreign owners; Coventry, a hymn to the author's love of football kits; Walsall, a diversion into club nicknames (the Saddlers, since you ask); Spurs will lead to Gary Lineker and the art of TV punditry; and Crystal Palace will lead to superstitions, romance and being padlocked into a train with no toilet on the way to Wrexham. Not only that but there will also be exclusive contributions from celebrity football fans, ex-players and managers, and current chairmen of football clubs. The book will conclude that while there are fan rivalries, football unites more than it divides.
