Football Book Club venture into new territory this week, as we read our first ever referee's autobiography. And who else to introduce us to the genre, but the most iconic ref of them all - Pierluigi Collina.
Featuring Pierluigi on World Cup finals, Champions League finals, and a Serie C match where someone got attacked with an umbrella. Pierluigi almost getting Punk'd, joking around with Gabriel Batistuta and being impressed by the Renault 4's fuel consumption. Mr Collina's unhinged eating habits and why he won't sit down to eat chicken. Exceptional anecdotes such as 'Edmilson's back-to-front shirt incident'. Plus James Boughen versus Ben Mee.
