This book has its origin in a project about Great Britain during the 1980’s. Many of the quotes are rooted in that decade and are predominantly from British sportsmen and women.

I have drawn on letters written to the national press, occasional news items and some literary verses all with a strong British bias.

This wasn’t how I intended the book to be but I found that any sport played outside of these islands was a completely different ball game.

I suppose that is how others see us. What has emerged is a sort of snapshot of Britain viewed from the perspective of its sporting heroes. But more often than not, its failures.

It also became very apparent that other nations especially the Americans, see sport as completely different from the British.

The Americans use terms that are very aggressive whereas the British see playing sport, any sport, as being life itself – played to the rules.

The quotes are listed alphabetically by author in each section (with some editorial exceptions) but it is more of a book to pop into now and then rather than read from starting line to final whistle.
