"The Big Book of Football" by Mundial, illustrated by Damien Weighill (Wide Eyed Editions)

"Ball Ball Ball! Footy Footy Footy! Ball Ball Ball...FOOTBALL!"

We must admit we are utterly and completely clueless when it comes to the beautiful game, not knowing our Spurs from our Arsenals, but if you're looking for a giant-sized book that is a mammoth encyclopaedia filled with all aspects of football, you really can't get any better than "The Big Book of Football" by Mundial and Damien Weighill.

This fantastically presented book is literally filled from cover to cover with a huge selection of facts and figures about football from the history of the game right through to the modern spectacle of football that is loved by zillions around the world.

Even with football bouncing off us like a fried egg on a teflon pan we can definitely appreciate a wonderfully compiled and presented book that will be a complete must for fans young and old. We can't possibly do this book justice, so let's suck a half-time orange and take a peek inside instead...!

If you want to get ahead, get a boot (or two!)
Zipped together in a really pin-sharp brilliant graphical style, there's a huge wealth of information here covering absolutely every angle.

The offside rule - befuddling non-football fans since, well, forever
Where you play is as important as how you play!
We've come to expect the highest possible standards from all Wide Eyed Editions books, and once again they've surpassed themselves with this publication.

Sum this book up in a sentence: Pack it in your kitbag (if you've got a huge kitbag, this thing is GINORMOUS) - it's going to last more than 90 minutes!
