Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Despite all the media attention soccer receives, no one has seen fit to devise an awards system for the verbal geniuses of the modern game. This book is the definitive study of "guff," our umbrella term for all the gaffes, faux pas, and general foolishness so prevalent in soccer today. Thrill as Uncle Bobby Robson, King Kev, and Gordon Strachan battle it out for the Best Gaffer gong. While you're at it, cleanse your soul by taking a lesson or two from the Word of Hod. In the Best Commentator category, sheepskin statto Motty challenges for glory against Beeb stablemate Barry Davies, as well as ITV big-hitters Clive Tyldesley and the sadly departed Brian Moore. From Lawro to Rodney Marsh, from Des Lynam to Ian Holloway, The Gaffta Awards profiles dozens of soccer's talking heads and features hundreds of the funniest quotes and blunders.
