Overview

'He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it - you can see it all over their faces' - Ron Atkinson

'Rugby is a good occasion for keeping thirty bullies far from the city centre' - Oscar Wilde

Whether over the moon or sick as a parrot, sportsmen and women can invariably be relied upon to come out with a humorous quote...even if it's not always intentional. The Bowler's Holding, The Batsman's Willey provides the definitive collection of sporting wit, from participants and observers alike.

The book covers the full gamut of the sports spectrum and provides over 4,000 side-splittingly funny quotes - some examples of incisive sporting wit, others inadvertent howlers never to be forgotten; ranging from the cutting remarks of Brian Clough and Muhammad Ali to the studied observations of John Arlott and the hilarious gaffes of Murray Walker.

The Bowler's Holding, The Batsman's Willey is an absolute must for any sports fan.
