You'll love this because...

Your friend’s name appears on the front of this hilarious and informative Haynes guide to the beautiful game!

  • Write a special message on the title page
  • Name appears at top of every page
  • Hardback official spoof Haynes manual

The Haynes Owners Workshop Manual format of book is something that just about everyone who has ever owned a car or motorcycle will be familiar with, and this official Haynes Explains Football book parodies the manuals by applying the same detailed approach with diagrams to explaining the world’s most popular sport! Full of interesting facts and also the all important rules of the game, this book is a funny gift for a sports fan, or a useful one for somebody who’d like to be able to talk about soccer with their partner or friends!

Your friend’s name will appear on the cover, and at the top of each page. You can also add your own personal message on the title page.

Haven't opened the book fully as it is for a Christmas present but from what I have seen it looks very good quality. Smaller than expected.

The final result was wonderful

The final result was wonderful. The book was given as a gift for fathers day. It came out beautiful and we are pleased. It was only prior to receiving the book that there was a hick-up. My order could not be tracked on your site at all and we had no way to know when it was arriving. Thankfully when it did arrive we got it with no issues. Overall the finished product is well worth the price and its a great keepsake to have.
