Pickles the World Cup Dog and Other Unusual Football Obituaries Summary

Pickles the World Cup Dog and Other Unusual Football Obituaries by Peter Seddon

Following on from Aurum's successful sports humour title in winter 2006, Peter the Lord's Cat, we bring you a football equivalent for winter 2007. Pickles the World Cup Dog is a beautifully-designed small gift book which offers an eccentric gallery of over 200 footballing obituaries. This original collection concentrates on the more unusual subjects, from celebrities (Rod Hull - death by TV football); inventors (Charles Goodyear, without whom the manufacture of bladder footballs and the development of the modern game would not have been possible); literary greats (Albert Camus, goalkeeper turned novelist who 'owed everything to football'); god's creatures (Toby the Sheep, Morton FC's club mascot who drowned in the club bath); musicians (Elgar, an avid Wolves fan who wrote the first football 'chant'); and murders (referee William Ernest Williams killed in 1912 by a disgruntled player); and of course the much lamented mongrel Pickles, the '66 world cup hero who discovered the stolen cup under a bush in South Norwood before garrotting himself on his own leash in pursuit of a neighbour's tabby. This work does for football what Aurum's successful Peter the Lord's Cat did for cricket. It offers an original collection of 200 football-related obituaries, full of surprising and eccentric entries. It is available in a beautifully produced miniature hardback. It is an ideal gift book for football fans.
