And prepare to be very entertained. Why can you score from a corner with a free header, but never with a free shot? Why is a left foot either trusty or educated, but a right foot is neither? Why is a bad back pass almost invariably suicidal? Let Leigh and Woodhouse take you on a journey, from the "top-flight" vocabulary of commentators to the more "speculative efforts" of footballers, from the "Champions League circus" to a "Wednesday night in Rochdale". Why are hooligans always a tiny minority even when there seem to be hundreds of them throwing seats across Kenilworth Road? Discover how stock phrases - "schoolboy howler", "sweeper system" - are only part of the story in the artfully twisted language of football.
