Gooaal!: The Joy of Football Celebrations [9781785317309]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Football celebrations are a vital part of the beautiful game. Gooaal! The Joy of Football Celebrations is all about what happens in the exhilarating moments after a goal. Where once a firm handshake was the norm - with a brief head nod if it had been a really good goal - today we see backflips, finger-pointing, ear-cuffing, badge-bashing, knee-sliding, camera-mugging, thumb-sucking - and sometimes something entirely original and funny. Often, the celebration is instinctive and all the better for it, but others are carefully planned and designed to make a point. Some are controversial or political, and an unfortunate few have resulted in injuries. Peter Crouch, Wayne Rooney, Paul Gascoigne, Jurgen Klinsmann, Jamie Vardy, Raheem Sterling, Alex Morgan, Bebeto, finger-wagging Jimmy Bullard, golf club-waving Craig Bellamy, line-sniffing Robbie Fowler - all of them are among the 200-plus celebrations featured in this book. You'll discover exactly what went on - and why.
AUTHOR: Tony Rickson has spent a lifetime on local and regional newspapers, in roles ranging from editor of several titles to group sports editor in charge of 21 different papers. He has written about football at every level, from international matches down to non-league, and has seen thousands of games at hundreds of different grounds. His goal celebration during a relatively modest playing career was to raise one arm and solemnly punch the air.
