Publisher Description

"This is a book about football and Britain, and Britain and football. You can't fully understand one without the other; and if you haven't got a sense of humour it's not worth even trying. "My name's Tim Marshall and it's been a week since my last match. I support a football club. That's not just five words; it' s a life sentence." Why do so many of us attend football grounds, rain or shine, week in week out, to bellow at our fellow countrymen? Because we love it. Football chants are the grassroots of the game, from the Premier League all the way down to the Conference and beyond. They're funny. And they're sharp. And in the UK they run very deep. In this witty and insightful account, Tim Marshall tells the story of British football through the songs and chants that give it meaning. This is a book about the fans, written for the fans, with all the flair and banter that bring the beautiful game to life. No other sport has a culture quite like it. This is an enhanced ebook that contains many of the chants, so you can listen as you read!

The Sounds of the Terraces

As both a great idea and a well written book, this is an impressively well-researched and executed piece of work.

Whether you’re a football fan, someone who loves music or you just want a great laugh, this is a book you’ll love. And as others hear you laugh, they’ll want to read it too.

And the audio that’s embedded truly adds to the experience.

Infectious Stuff. Brilliant!
