More Knowledge by James Dart

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Is Paolo Mandini the greatest runner-up? What is the fastest ever sending-off? Who are the most benevolent players? How did Alan Hansen get his scar? Which is the world's greenest club? More Knowledge is well ahead of other football knowledge books. It doesn't answer questions that have been asked and answered a billion times before. Instead, it asks: What is the most postponed game ever? Which managers have been sacked at half-time? And, did a referee really shoot a player dead? All questions—posed by Guardian readers—have been faithfully (and brilliantly) answered by the Guardian's online football-writing team.
