A collection of lyrical sweet-nothings whispered to club shops, floodlights, outfield players in goal and 47 other reminders of why we love football
Overpaid players. Sunday lunchtime kick-offs. Absurd ticket prices. Non-black boots. Football's menu of ills is long. Where has the joy gone? Why do we bother? Saturday, 3pm
offers a glorious antidote. It is here to remind you that football can still sing to your heart. . .Warm, heartfelt and witty, here are fifty short essays of prose poetry dedicated to what is good in the game. These are not wallowing nostalgia; they are things that remain
sweet and right: seeing a ground from the train, brackets on vidiprinters, ball hitting bar, Jimmy Armfield's voice, listening to the results in a traffic jam, football towns and autograph-hunters. This is fan culture at its finest, words to transport you somewhere else and identify with, words to hide away in a pub and luxuriate in.. .Saturday, 3pm
is a book of love letters to football and a clarion call, helping us find the romance in the game all over again.
