Lovejoy on Football

One Man's Passion for The Most Important Subject in the World




One Man's Passion for The Most Important Subject in the World

Tim Lovejoy loves football. Along with Helen Chamberlain he presented Soccer AM for more than a decade to become as much a part of a football fan's weekend as phone-ins, back-page EXCLUSIVES and the vidiprinter. But why does Tim love football? Is it actually the most important subject in the world? And did he really once support Watford as a kid?

Lovejoy on Football gets down to the nitty gritty of the really important stuff in football, such as:

Why he, Tim, is technically a rubbish football fan;

Women's true place in football;

How 'Save Chip' became the biggest football cause in the country;

Why it's a bad idea to hammer Razor Ruddock;

And why footballers are in fact underpaid.

Packed with amusing anecdotes, bustling with great football stories and full of strong opinions, Lovejoy on Football is the must-have football book of 2007.

About the author

Tim Lovejoy

Tim Lovejoy was one-half of Britain's best-loved football show Soccer AM. Along with Helen Chamberlain, he catwalked with Lucy Pinder, offered a fiver to any fan who held up a banner with "Lovejoy is a legend" on it at a match, saved Chip from his girlfriend, successfully lobbied for the word "bouncebackability" to enter the Collins English Dictionary, and uttered the famous words, "It's only Ray Parlour," in the 2002 FA Cup Final. (Moments later, Parlour scored a brilliant goal. Against his beloved Chelsea.) He has also presented Fifth Gear on Channel 5, Something for the Weekend on BBC2, and writes a weekly column for Nuts magazine.
