Fighting Talk : Flimsy Facts, Sweeping Statements and Inspired Sporting Hunches Hardback


The Sports Fact: the bedrock of any self-respecting fan, the trump card of the pub conversation.

We cant quote Shakespeare or remember our loved ones birthdays - superfluous! - but we can list, in alphabetical order, the last three strikers for our teams to have a 20-goal season, together with the names of their wives, children, aunts, favourite TV shows, golf handicap... glory! And so it is that Fighting Talk, the Saturday morning bastion of world-class punditry, introduces five years of accrued knowledge, one liners, quips, and anecdote all gleaned from, or in the style of, the hugely popular show.

Discover Sports Facts as pithy as what kind of chocolate bar Victoria Beckham was munching on as she gave birth to first son Brooklyn, or whether a World Cup victory have any effect on the victorious nations GDP, or even Also, be challenged by the divisive Defend the Indefensibles in which our crack team of writers support motions as scurrilous as the best thing about the Grand National is seeing a horse gets shot, or that its really true women really cant throw.
