But He Got the Ball Ref!

Football (soccer) rules

Questioning refereeing decisions is part of the matchday experience – a topic for post-match debate – but all too often fans embarrass themselves by not knowing what they are talking about. The common one is “but he got the ball!” – even TV pundits, who are supposed to be there to provide expert analysis, often don’t understand what Law 12 of the game actually means.
This is a book for fans, for amateur players and lovers of the beautiful game. 
As well as a easy to follow look at the laws of the game, there are insights into how the laws developed, and a humorous take on the state of the modern game.
