Those who have been football supporters all their lives can never forget the first match they ever saw, although they might not recall the result. This is because it is the players that stay in the memory and the magic moments they provided for millions of spectators in their time.Every generation throws up its own football field magicians and The Scottish Football Hall of Fame encapsulates the Saturday afternoon spell cast by fine footballers for ordinary working men who lived to cheer on their heroes every week. Fervour was passed down from father to son, and in this way the future of the clubs as well as the fame of a few golden greats was guaranteed. Players like R.S.McColl (Queen's Park), Bobby Walker (Hearts), Alan Morton (Rangers), Denis Law (Manchester United) and Kenny Dalglish (Celtic) are in this pantheon, and they span the arc of Scottish football from its earliest days till modern times. These, and more than a hundred like them, are the men you will read about in these pages. Men who were once household names are captured here in their sporting immortality and introduced to generations of football enthusiasts who never saw them play. The Scottish Football Hall of Fame gives a unique overview of the beautiful game, where by means of illuminating narrative and anecdote, legend can unite with historical fact to honour not only the wearers of the famous dark blue shirt but every foot-soldier in the Tartan Army who has ever shouted 'Scotland! Scotland!' from the terraces.

Every football fan has heard Vince Lombardi’s famous adage: “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” The same is true of Knute Rockne’s exhortation to “Win one for the Gipper.” Quotes like these have become part of football’s lore. Less well known is Alex Karras’s advice on the best way to stop All-Pro running back Jim Brown: “Give each guy on the line an ax.” Or Randy Cross’s opinion of his fellow players’ intelligence: “The NFL, like life, is full of idiots.” And then there’s this glimpse into Bill Parcells’s game plan: “If my quarterback runs, I’ll shoot him.” The Little Red Book of Football Wisdom is a collection of witty and hilariously irreverent quotes about America’s most popular sport. Players, coaches, celebrities, and literary giants weigh in on the best—and worst—football teams, athletes, games, fans, and more. These are just some of the folks whose words appear in these pages: Joe Namath David Halberstam Joe Montana Paul Hornung Deion Sanders Mean Joe Greene Richard Nixon Jerry Seinfeld Barack Obama Bruce Springsteen Hunter S. Thompson Faith Hill Ernest Hemingway And dozens of others! With a rich history dating back nearly 150 years, football is America’s game. Through the words of people who’ve played, coached, and cheered the games, The Little Red Book of Football Wisdom brings football’s vibrant tradition to life.

'He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it - you can see it all over their faces' - Ron Atkinson 'Rugby is a good occasion for keeping thirty bullies far from the city centre' - Oscar Wilde Whether over the moon or sick as a parrot, sportsmen and women can invariably be relied upon to come out with a humorous quote...even if it's not always intentional. The Bowler's Holding, The Batsman's Willey provides the definitive collection of sporting wit, from participants and observers alike. The book covers the full gamut of the sports spectrum and provides over 4,000 side-splittingly funny quotes - some examples of incisive sporting wit, others inadvertent howlers never to be forgotten; ranging from the cutting remarks of Brian Clough and Muhammad Ali to the studied observations of John Arlott and the hilarious gaffes of Murray Walker. The Bowler's Holding, The Batsman's Willey is an absolute must for any sports fan.

Scotland may not have won a World Cup (yet!), but many of the country’s sportsmen and women are revered as global legends, including Olympic and US Open champion Andy Murray and winner of six Olympic gold medals, Sir Chris Hoy. In football, the likes of Denis Law, ‘Slim’ Jim Baxter and Jimmy ‘Jinky’ Johnstone would not have looked out of place in the canary yellow of Brazil, while managers Sir Matt Busby, Bill Shankly and Jock Stein have become part of football folklore, as has Sir Alex Ferguson in more recent times. Amazingly, Scots have reached the top in just about every major sport: Jim Clark and Sir Jackie Stewart in Formula One; Andy Murray in tennis; Ken Buchanan and Benny Lynch in the boxing ring; Chris Hoy in cycling; sprinters Allan Wells and Eric Liddell on the Olympic track; and, as befits a nation renowned as ‘the home of golf’, Sandy Lyle was recognised as the greatest player on the planet upon winning the Masters in 1988. Scottish sport is the richest of tapestries and in Scottish Sporting Legends the cream of the crop are entertainingly profiled in a revealing collection of pen portraits of stars past and present.
