'For the first time - the complete lexicon of football cliches.' The Times

A sort of Robbie Fowler's Modern English Usage, the Football Lexicon provides an A to Row Z of the language of football, with over 800 examples of the set phrases we use to talk and write about the beautiful game.

'The boys done terrific. A work of genius.' Martin Kelner
