Over time the language of football has developed into something quite unrecognisable a melting pot of hyperbole idioms and exaggeration. Many of football's terms would be seen as bizarre in any other walk of life a doctor would never diagnose a patient with having the dreaded metatarsal and only commentators seem to feel the need to tell us who was at number one the last time a team won at a certain ground. Join Bendelow and Kidd as they produce a barnstorming run through some of the best-loved (depending on how you look at it) phrases and sayings which come out of the mouths of players managers pundits journalists and of course you the fans. From trigger happy chairmen to the want-away striker football offers us a unique language which can be amusing and at other times simply infuriating. That's right the lads really did give it 110% out there today as they silenced the boo boys in the relegation six-pointer. A book which will make you laugh out loud nod your head in agreement and hopefully offer a few surprises "Bendelow and Kidd's Dictionary of Football" should have its place on every true football fan's bookshelf.
