End to End Stuff by Les Scott
Book DescriptionWhen was an England versus Germany match scheduled for the anniversary of Hitler's birthday? Which is the only club to have scored and conceded 100 goals in a season? Did you know that Bobby Moore's middle name was Chelsea? Who was the last person to score on his debut for England - but never play for his country again? Can you name the 12 players to have won the league title with two different clubs? The answers to all these questions, and a thousand more besides, can be found - where else? - in End to End Stuff: The Essential Football Book. With 66 chapters (there wasn't room for 1966) covering everything from balls to caps, blunders and coincidences, strips, club songs and even the weather, Les Scott tells the history of the game through a winning combination of anecdotes, facts, quotes and statistics. Which two players scored hat-tricks in Arsenal's 6-1 Premiership win against Southampton in 2003? Who said: "If we play like that every week, we'll achieve some level of consistency"? When were league games first played on a Sunday? What was Chris Waddle's job before he became a professional footballer? And did you hear about the Scottish centre-forward who received a live lamb as a bonus for scoring a goal, but was too sheepish to butcher it? With sections devoted to the history of domestic league and cup competitions, as well as major European and international trophies (not to mention the unwritten laws of football, what happened to Tunji Banjo, and why 3,964 is the World Cup's magic number), End to End Stuff is a treasure trove of information. This is a football reference book like no other - informative, revealing, fun, and ideal for resolving those pub arguments...
