Jellyman's Thrown a Wobbly

Saturday afternoon, and if don't know who Jeff Stelling is you evidently don't follow football.

The man who can speak about 90 different games all at once, and knows the stats from teams in the Conference as well as he does the Premier League, now has a book: a collection of entertaining ancedotes from his time on Soccer Saturday.

Jellyman's Thrown a Wobbly (Saturday Afternoons in Front of the Telly) cites one of his most famous quotes and gives us a unique insight into the cult status of one of the tele's finest figures.

A deliciously chaotic, hugely entertaining, anecdote-ridden, humorous taste of life in the Soccer Saturday studio, it's great to hear what Jeff has to say about some of the show's legendary pundits over the years - ex-players such as George Best, Rodney Marsh, Chris Kamara, Charlie Nicholas and Matt Le Tissier.

You can learn what goes on behind the camera, while finding out everything about what it takes to make the magic happen.

The book just goes to demonstrate how a six-hour long, studio-based show with no live action pictures and featuring men gazing into TV monitors which the viewer can't see, can hold a huge audience enthralled every Saturday afternoon between August and May.

Obviously the highlight is some of the quotes to have come out of the show and Stelling over the past years. It's a cracking read, but we'll leave you a taste:

''They'll be dancing in the streets of Total Network Solutions tonight" and "James Brown's grabbed a second for Hartlepool. I feel good!"
