This is an irreverent, fun-packed spoof, a football annual for adults, and an instant antidote to all those dark winter nights watching your team's latest scoreless bore-draw against the pub eleven from next door. Now you can enrich your knowledge of all things football, thanks to this rib-tickling mickey-take on the nation's favourite sport. "Balls!" gets to the parts that other books cannot reach, with its topical trivia and scabrous twist on 'the man's game.'
