Introduction :

Sixty English League derbies are studied and a top thirty are described in detail in a Derby League Table.


Synopsis :

Love, Hope and Hatred celebrates the most spine-tingling occasions in the worlds best-loved sport - footballs derby matches. Sixty English League derbies are studied and a top thirty are described in detail in a Derby League Table, a basis for endless debate.

Enjoy too a whistle-stop tour of local rivalries across six continents and compare world derbies with our own. The book answers questions about how derbies have developed which are the most competitive? Why are some so especially ferocious? Why have clubs changed partners? Why are there derbies based upon class, politics and religion? and why are they called derbies anyway?

The book is for football lovers everywhere and the first half in particular will also appeal to people interested in social history and the odd pub quiz!


Our verdict :

There are not many books solely dedicated to football derbies so were very happy to see this little treasure from Mike Mosley. It describes all of the great football derbies in England. A must read for the real football derby fans!
