The Five a Side Bible

If you play football, the chances are you play 5-a-side - it's by far the most popular version of the game in the UK. But it's much more than a game. It's an unbeatable fitness regime, it's a social club, it's an elite sport, it's what we do when we get too old for 'jumpers for goalposts'. The 5-a-side Bible tells the whole story. There's sports science, the low-down on tacti and nutrition, how to use warm-ups and warm-downs to optimise performance. But there's also the fun side of fives: crazy team names - The Neville Wears Prada, Murder on Zidane's Floor - wacky stories of ill-discipline and injuries, outlandish excuses for not playing, kit disasters and a bucket list of the world's most iconic 5-a-side pitches. Produced by BackPage Press (Football Manager Stole My Life), Freight and 5-a-side.com, this is the book 5-a-side has been waiting for.
