9781472220387: Football Clichés
Review:

This is a work of scholarship - always dry, but never dusty - that takes its place on the shelf alongside John Leigh and David Woodhouse's 2004 Football Lexicon as a must-have for those who enjoy a side order of detached amusement and some linguistic relish along with their calorie-rich, artery-clogging diet of modern football.

All aspects of the game come under the microscope. Especially enjoyable is the sliding scale of Football Anger, which runs from the mild "bemoaning" and "sideswipe" all the way through "parting shots" and "slamming" to the weapons-grade "astonishing attack". The illustrations, reminiscent of a Haynes car manual, echo the precise deconstruction of the writing.

This book, intelligent and sharp but still affectionate, is a spiritual heir to the best of the printed fanzines, to Danny Baker and Danny Kelly's gleeful radio shows, to the irreverent delight in the game's quirks celebrated by websites such as Football365.

( The Telegraph)

This affectionate dissection of the game's well-worn phrases mildly mocks a few of the more tired ones, for instance "slide rule pass" - who uses a slide rule these days? - but points out that new ones are still being coined; apparently, Jose Mourinho first used the now-ubiquitous "parking the bus" as recently as 2004.

As for TV pundits, what, according to Alan Hansen, do defenders fear most? All together now: "pace", be it searing, blistering, lightning, explosive, in abundance, bags of, to burn, genuine and on occasion even deceptive. For me, this is a top, top effort by the boy Hurrey, and at the end of the day you can't say fairer than that.

( The Independent (Book of the week))

An entertaining, hilarious dissection of the language of football, complete with diagrams and illustrations. Open your chequebook for a last-ditch transfer swoop. ( Sport Magazine)

Descripción Hachette Australia, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 1. 13.6 x 20.5 cm. In what other context do football fans use the words 'aplomb' or 'derisory'? Why don't we use 'rifle' as a verb on the other six days of the week? Why do aggrieved mid-fielders feel the instinctive need to make a giant ball-shaped gesture with both hands after a mistimed tackle is punished? The more Adam Hurrey watched football, the more he began to spot the recurring mannerisms, behaviours, opinions and iconography that were mindlessly repeated in the football media. Some cliches are ridiculous, some are quaintly outdated, some have survived through their sheer indisputability. Here, featuring gloriously pseudo-scientific diagrams and the inimitable writing style that made [Url removed]a smash hit, they are covered in all their glory. Hardback.
