In soccer's first linguistic odyssey, Peter Seddon explores how words came about to describe football kit, boots, and balls; playing techniques, foul play, girl talk, and team terminology; and the language of commentators and footie mags, to list just a few examples.

Whether you're a football fanatic, armchair enthusiast, or wordsmith, learning "footie-speak" has never been easier.
