This book will appeal to all lovers of the beautiful game, who believe in sportsmanship, entertainment and doing things right. It is the story of a lifelong football fan, who landed his dream job when he was asked to become his team's stadium announcer. Broadcaster Jeremy Nicholas turned down the job initially as he didn't want to give up his season ticket and his right to shout at the players, but after dreaming about it three nights in a row, he agreed. When he was sacked after ten years in the job at West Ham, he felt like he'd been chucked by a girlfriend he'd loved all his life. This is an insider's view of a club that's never far from the headlines, despite not buying any silver polish since 1980. You don't have to be a comedian to be a West Ham fan, but it helps. Humour has never been far away in his career as a TV and radio presenter and after-dinner speaker, and Jeremy's book is crammed full of hilarious anecdotes from his life in football and broadcasting. You'll discover: *The match where he upset his team, the away team, the supporters and the manager. *Which referee was never given chocolate biscuits by Betty the tea lady. *Why Herbie the Hammer and Bubbles the Bear were thrown off the pitch in Cardiff. *Why Mr Moon never stays for a whole match. *Why Jeremy's best day at the Boleyn Ground was not a football match. *Why fans booed one of his very first announcements. *How to do the perfect minute's silence. *Why he hates music being played after goals are scored. *Which manager never made him a cup of tea. And lots of important behind the scenes information like that.
