In Football's Craziest Matches, author Colin Mitchell chronicles the games, facts and stories that make you laugh and shake your head - the biggest scores, the crazy comebacks, the player riots, silly superstitions and mad happening on and off the pitch. You won't believe some of the stories in this book: the manager who peed near the corner flag to get rid of a gypsy curse, the South American goalkeeper who was killed when he conceded a goal, and the fan banned for life for throwing a dog at the ref. The list is seemingly endless. Published in a flexi-back splash proof cover, this 'bathroom edition' is the ideal book for the obsessive football fan.
