    Do you speak football?

    To speak football is to speak a language of a thousand tongues. In this new and revised global glossary of football words and phrases, discover the rich, quirky and joyously creative language used by fans, commentators and players across the world. From placing a shot ‘where the spiders nest’ in Spain, to what it means to use your ‘chocolate leg’ in the Netherlands, via ‘Anglican’ – a phrase adopted by Czechs to describe a disputed goal – and the now legendary ‘it’s coming home’, this comprehensively researched book entertains and informs in equal measure.
