What's the best book about football yet to be written?
Just finished a couple of major writing projects and putting together some ideas for the future.

I've always avoided writing about sport professionally, because so much journalism and literature on the subject is hackneyed or cliched into parody.

But I do still like reading quality football coverage (Simon Kuper etc - although he's begun to disappear up his own backside).

You lot are a informed bunch when it comes to football (well, some of you anyway). So what's the best/most interesting book about football - or sport - that has yet to be written or covered? And why the fuck haven't you written it yet?

All suggestions welcome - even the shit, pithy ones that will inevitably follow...

That would enter next season, I think, with the world Super Cup, I think that’ll go in the book The story behind West Ham’s six trophy year 2022-2023. Am I missing one, perhaps it should be seven? If Guardiola did it with Barca, don’t see why Moyes wouldn’t do it with the happy Hammers.

PB was the club secretary (old regime under Terry brown) and it was his secretary who was on receiving end lol

First time I've heard it called a secretary, Pentonville.

You're fast becoming my favourite poster on here.

"Where have I seen that face before?"

The story of when I walked in the dressing room and caught a well known married West Ham player going through the Club Secretary's secretary like a freight train.

As slow as a C5 he wasn't.

My favourite football book is A Season With Verona by Tim Parks.

Find a dog shit team and follow them for a whole season and try to understand why the punters actually follow a dog shit team.

I'd buy it.

Re: What's the best book about football yet to be written?
A rabbit whole I sometimes fall down is the wiki pages of former players with big potential that didn’t make it.

There has to be a book in that if you can find the most outlandish, odd, bizarre change of careers.
