This is a collection of quotes from all sectors of the sporting world; players, officials, press and spectators. It covers all major sports and some minor ones such as conkers and lawn mower racing. It is predominantly about sport in Great Britain and gives an outsider a unique perspective of how we view ourselves and how much we differ from the Americans in our approach to the game.
This collection of quotes covers all major sports such as football, cricket, tennis and boxing through to bowls, lawn mower racing and croquet. It is broadly about sport in Great Britain but American Football, Baseball and Ice Hockey are well represented. Quotes have been collected from players and officials, the press, spectators as well as lines from poems and letters columns. It is not just about successes but failures as well, the glory of competing and the gloom of defeat, the humour of the victor and the foot in the mouth comments from critics, players and commentators who really should have remained silent. Fortunately they did not and they all find themselves in this book, immortalised.
