Classic Football Debates Settled Once and For All, Vol.1 Summary


Classic Football Debates Settled Once and For All, Vol.1 by Danny Baker

At last, at long, long last - the award-winning Baker & Kelly bring you the most entertaining, radical and unreliable football book ever published. It is full of facts, near facts and 'facts'. The Two Dannys intend to argue the toss, spill the beans and heave the talcum about everything and anything from the game's biggest questions to some more middling posers right down to stuff they have frankly invented themselves. Which clubs has the handsomest fans? Who is the greatest player of all time? Pele? Maradona? Puskas? Rougvie? Have foreign players helped or hindered the English game? Well, Marco Boogers, well? Which was the most tip top ever World Cup? (the answer to which will reference Baker & Kelly's own personal adventures at each tournament, which, while narrowing it down, makes for crackerjack reading). Who was the greatest football dad, Fred Baker or Andy Kelly? What was it really like to hang out with Paul Gascoigne back in the day? And that's it. A cornucopia of footballing fun and well-crafted wisdom that is certain to make the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Shortlist and sell like beer-flavoured crisps. Who wouldn't want this book on their roster, except maybe Dick Rowe? Baker & Kelly: Sometimes right, sometimes wrong - but always certain. A new expression we are hoping to popularise. Danny Kelly is a permanent member of the William Hill judging panel. The Decca executive who turned down The Beatles.

About Danny Baker


Broadcast legend Danny Baker is the pioneering presenter of the original football phone-in 6-0-6 on the BBC. He also began the whole Own Goals and Gaffes Xmas video industry later jumped on by everyone from Neil Kinnock to Judge Judy and for this he apologises unreservedly. He neither likes nor cares about any other football club than his own (Millwall) and knows that's just how all other real supporters actually live their miserable lives. Publishing overlord Danny Kelly is former editor of NME, Q and Total Sport , and founder of the Football365 website. He regularly broadcasts on TalkSport and BBC FiveLive. He appals Baker by knowing 97.4% of everything there is to know about football and 85.3% about every other sport. He loves Spurs but annoys those who sit around him at White Hart Lane by booing the team as they run out just in case. Danny Baker and Danny Kelly have broadcast their award-scooping stuff for years now and have co-written a weekly sports column for the Times, until that was sacked too. Immediately after, their Baker & Kelly football podcast became the country's no.1 sports download. NUMBER ONE. There, suck that up all you lily livered hair-trigger quaking BBC execs.This is their first book.
