Football / Soccer Books
Welcome to the obsessive world of Fantasy Football, where managers will do anything to succeed. David Wardale - writer for the UK's number one Fantasy Football site, Fantasy Football Scout - meets previous winners to discover how they beat millions to the crown.
He reveals the leagues where failure involves outright humiliation and discovers just how low some managers will go to claim a psychological advantage. Along the way, he finds Saudi sheikhs, stats professors, most of Norway and a member of one of the biggest pop bands of all time, all of them united by their unflinching desire for Fantasy Football greatness.

Who was Socrates? What is certain is that he was so much more than simply a footballer. While he was at his most iconic as captain of, arguably, the greatest team not to win a World Cup, Socrates was a qualified doctor and carried with him an intellect atypical of the game. Based on the unpublished memoirs of the man himself and including hours of previously undiscovered interviews, Andrew Downie's Doctor Socrates is the definitive life story of one of football’s true enigmas.
