'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Win Mad For It - Footies Greatest Rivalries

Win a copy of Mad for It: From Blackpool to Barcelona Football's Greatest Rivalries

What's the ultimate football derby? Could it be Manchester City v Manchester United, Southampton v Portsmouth, Newcastle v Sunderland, Rangers v Celtic, Arsenal v Spurs, Wrexham v Chester City, West Bromwich Albion v Wolverhampton Wanderers, Preston North End v Blackpool, or Millwall v West Ham?

In the new book Mad for It Andy Mitten talks to managers, players, backroom staff, local journalists and to a host of passionate fans to illuminate the conflicts, tensions, histories and culture behind these fascinating games. From the biggest global clashes and little known derbies in Cairo or Calcutta which attract twice as many fans as any Old Firm clash, to the coldest derby in the world, and the friendliest - Mad for It journeys across the UK and to the far-flung regions of planet football to discover the classic derby matches.

Features 28 games including: Argentina v Brazil, Cliftonville v Linfield, Barcelona v Real Madrid, Roma v Lazio, Elgin City v East Stirlingshire, Boca Juniors v River Plate Iran v Iraq, Mohun Bagan v East Bengal and many more…

Mad for It is available now in hardback from Amazon.co.uk and all good bookshops.

Or to be in with a chance of winning one of ten copies answer the following question

Question: Which famous Manchester band are known for the 'mad for it' saying? (Hint, you need one of these if you are stuck out in the desert without water!)
