In soccer's first linguistic odyssey, Peter Seddon explores how words came about to describe football kit, boots, and balls; playing techniques, foul play, girl talk, and team terminology; and the language of commentators and footie mags, to list just a few examples. This is the definitive guide to soccer's history and culture in its widest sense, and the book's nostalgic and often humorous approach encapsulates Britain's two greatest exports—the English language and soccer. Whether you're a football fanatic, armchair enthusiast, or wordsmith, learning "footie-speak" has never been easier.
