Publisher's Summary

"I have always collected football stories like other people collect stamps, and it's great to get this opportunity to stick them in a book." From the best-selling author of Ricky comes this collection of hilarious anecdotes about football, with stories about the stars themselves, the fans, the girlfriends, the managers, in fact every aspect of the beautiful, and occasionally ridiculous, game. Recounted with Ricky Tomlinson's trademark wit, this is a bright and brilliantly entertaining collection that will delight football fans everywhere.

Ricky Should have stuck to plastering!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This was an endless stream of pub football random anecdotes and would have benefited from linking the stories into a logical story format rather than the stop/start stuttering style that really didn't work. Ricky Tomlinson sounded like an 8 year old reading in front of his school class.

What could Ricky Tomlinson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not record it!

What didn’t you like about Ricky Tomlinson’s performance?

Irritatingly childlike and corny at best.

What character would you cut from Football My Arse!?

Ricky Tomlinson

Any additional comments?

Disappointing and sorry I bothered.

Interesting and funny

This book is both interesting and funny, lots of anecdotal snippets and a wonderful section on how football is no longer played for the fans, but for the accountants.
