Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork. And now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match, without using magic, so they’re in the mood for trying everything else.
The prospect of the Big Match draws in a street urchin with a wonderful talent for kicking a tin can, a maker of jolly good pies, a dim but beautiful young woman, who might just turn out to be the greatest fashion model there has ever been, and the mysterious Mr Nutt (and no one knows anything much about Mr Nutt, not even Mr Nutt, which worries him, too).

Editorial Reviews

• "Behind the fantasy Terry Pratchett looks at very real contemporary issues and scores many goals. This isn't just football, it's Discworld football. Or, to borrow another phrase, it's about life, the Universe, and everything." --The Times • "Satirical, historical, fantastical and irresistible." --Daily Mail • "The subject matter is football, with a dash of Romeo and Juliet... exactly what's needed to cheer us all up in the autumnal gloom. Terry has none of his ability to raise a laugh." --Daily Express From the Trade Paperback edition.
