about

101 Things That Get Our Goat About Football is an amusing look at the state of the game, both in the UK and worldwide. Rick Holden, as an ex-Premiership player, has identified 101 things that really annoy him about the sport and Dave Moore, as a dedicated fan of the game, gives his perspective on the irritants that Rick has singled out. Sometimes the duo are in sync but other times they are opposed. Whether or not the duo are of the same mind or not, the comparisons make compelling reading and leave no stone unturned.

Some of the things included in the list are people in the game like commentators John Motson and Jimmy Hill, managers of the stature of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger, officials in the game, players like Gazza and Ronaldo, club owners and executives, wags and women in football, agents, journalists, armchair fans and so-called celebrity fans, stewards and cheating players.

Others entries consist of the Premiership, international competitions, individual domestic and international teams, extortionate wages, grounds and facilities, i-pods and mobile communication, fancy footwear, football clichés, fashion, minnow teams in major competitions, fast cars, programmes, stupid bookings and clubs thinking they are still ‘big’ clubs. Outside influences like TV, sponsors, early kick-offs, police, etc are also covered in a must read book that should be on the bookshelf of all supporters of the beautiful game. They are all in there, warts and all!
