“Excellent!” The Times
“Kevin’s immense knowledge shines on every page.” Gary Lineker
“A football book by a fan for the fans. A treasure trove…” Alan Davies
“An entertaining romp through the back alleys and glamour parks of English football.” FourFourTwo
Partly autobiographical, partly polemical, but mostly funny, Who Are Ya? is a snapshot of modern football, exploring the history of all 92 English Football League clubs.
During his time as a broadcaster, Kevin Day has spoken to thousands of football players, managers and most importantly fans from across the generations. He spent thousands of hours crossing the country on trains, planes, automobiles, coaches – and once a donkey called Lightning – watching football at all levels. This book is the result of that: a tale of being chased down a railway line at Cardiff, a story of meeting George Best, an account of a lady getting her first Hull City tattoo at the age of 80!
Crisply funny and with a host of celebrity football fan contributors – including Stephen Fry, Jo Brand, Alfie Boe, Eddie Izzard, Gabby Logan, and Romesh Ranganathan – Who Are Ya? celebrates the joys and miseries of being a football supporter.
For any football fan in your life then this book is an absolute must buy!
This is a football book by a fan for the fans. A treasure trove of fun and fascinating facts on every club, including yours, with as much time devoted to Leyton Orient, as to Liverpool, to Mansfield Town as to Manchester City.
Kevin’s wit shines through on every page and you’ll learn and laugh in abundance.
