Love, Hope and Hatred by Mike Mosley
Love, Hope and Hatred celebrates the most spine-tingling occasions in the world’s best-loved sport - football’s derby matches. Sixty English League derbies are studied and a top thirty are described in detail in a Derby League Table, a basis for endless debate.
Enjoy too a whistle-stop tour of local rivalries across six continents and compare world derbies with our own. The book answers questions about how derbies have developed – which are the most competitive? Why are some so especially ferocious? Why have clubs changed ‘partners’? Why are there derbies based upon class, politics and religion? and why are they called ‘derbies’ anyway?
The book is for football lovers everywhere and the first half in particular will also appeal to people interested in social history – and the odd pub quiz!
