The Most Funniest, Off-beat and Irreverent Football Book

What a perfect day to write an update today after being force down couple days ago and making the optimization here and there for this blog, now I'm ready to kick-off again. Well, not really, as I'm still working on a BIG BANG for Magpies Zone whole new look for the first anniversary of its blog version next week.

Well, what's new today…hmmm, want to know who we will buy this summer? Nah! I haven't seen any sign of real potential buy this week as the media news is also don't have anything new but keep recycled the old speculation about Arda Turan and blah, blah, blah!

But, I have a good news from my friend Daniel Maier, well at least I thought that we're friends after knowing he has launch his new book at Amazon ( let me know Dan, are we friends? How about a free copy of your book? 🙂 ). He's a longlife crawler and good poster at our Newcastle United forum.

Ok, if you want to know what's this book all about, below are some useful information from the amazon. I give this book five stars so I don't think there's any reason why you not buying this. GO NOW and buy some before it out of stock.

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.

From the Inside Flap
To celebrate winning the FA Cup by wearing its lid as a hat.
To slightly resent letting a four-year-old score a goal past you in the garden.
To sneakily time a pre-match minute's silence, just to see if it's accurate.
Every footballer and fan knows of these things. But who has the words to describe them?

Wouldn’t discussing football be easier if there was a word for the ancient art of signing a Japanese player to increase shirt sales in the Far East? The feeling of frustration that the half of the league table you glimpse on TV is never the half with your team in? Or that affront you feel when the Pools Panel decides your team would have lost?

Yes. There should be. And there is. Footypedia: The Alternative Dictionary of Football is the essential repository for all those things in football that up ‘til now have simply taken too many words to describe.

The year's funniest, most off-beat and irreverent football book.
