When Saturday Comes : The Half Decent Football Book
This comprehensive A-Z covers all aspects of the beautiful game, from 'abandoned matches' to 'Wrexham FC' via celebrity fans, mascots, pitch invasions and the Bosman ruling. Every club in the English League and the Scottish League has a separate entry, FIFA, UEFA, the PFA and the Football Supporters Association are covered, and the murkier areas of football such as boardroom politics and match-fixing are explored and explained with When Saturday Comes' inimitable mix of humour and intelligence.

When Saturday Comes is a UK-based monthly football magazine covering all aspects of football culture from a fan's perspective. It first appeared as a fanzine in March 1986, and within two years had developed from a bi-monthly, photocopied, hand-stapled production into a monthly magazine with national distribution. The magazine has always aimed to provide a voice for intelligent football supporters, offering both a serious and humorous view of the sport while covering all the topics that fans are likely to talk about, whether serious or trivial.
