Synopsis

Football Crazy by Simon Mugford, Iain Spragg, Adrian Clarke

Football Crazy is a unique, light-hearted look at the global game. This stunning book, packed with amazing images and a lively text, covers such diverse football topics as amazing goals, tantalising tricks, brilliant saves, embarrassing mistakes, ludicrous haircuts and ghastly shirts. Arranged thematically and featuring everything from the sublime to the ridiculous, Football Crazy explores the most incredible and fascinating football stories and incidents from across the world. The result is an ingenious book that mixes football's brilliant moments with the utterly bonkers to create a unique and thrilling read that will have you astounded and laughing out loud in equal measure.

About the Author

After studying the history of everything at Goldsmiths College, Simon Mugford worked at the Science Museum making paper aeroplanes and setting fire to hydrogen balloons. Despite being a fully-grown man, his favourite subjects include dinosaurs, robots, rockets, loud music and Star Wars. An Ipswich Town fan since they won the FA Cup in 1978 (it's true - look it up) he lives in Kent with his wife, daughter, and a cat with two names. Iain Spragg is a sports journalist who has written for The Daily Telegraph and The Times. Adrian Clarke is now a freelance sports writer, contributing to a number of national newspapers in the UK.
