Getting girls onside for the new football season

Press release from: Bloodstone

Amie Walsh’s new book, ‘Football Rules for Girls’, aims to push aside the stereotypes, explain the offside rule, and get women out of the kitchen and onto the sofa for the new football season.

Written for female friends who were bemoaning the start of the new football season and the prospect of their beauty being overshadowed by that of the beautiful game, ‘Football Rules for Girls’ is a handy pocket guide that talks about the game, demystifies formations and league tables, and makes everything simple.

(Even the offside rule, which is moved into the far more welcoming environment of a shoe shop in order to tease out its intricacies.)

“The truth is,” says author, Amie Walsh, “that during the wonderful summer, we’ve had no premier league, no world cup, not even Olympic football to disturb our peace. We’ve actually been able to talk to our men about important things.”

Fearing that the launch of the new football season will leave women, once more, in second place whenever their man’s team is playing, ‘Football Rules for Girls’ puts women right beside them.

“We can’t beat them,” Amie Walsh adds, “so we might as well join them.”

With quotes from famous football figures and the league tables for all of the football divisions in the 2011/2012 season — including the Women’s Premier League — ‘Football Rules for Girls’ re-addresses the balance by giving women the information they need to compete on an equal footing.

“This is the one book girls need to buy to understand football,” Amie Walsh says.

It will be interesting to see, however, who ends up buying the book. Will it be girls who want to join their men? Or will it be men who want to appease their girls with something more meaningful than a box of chocolates?

‘Football Rules for Girls’ is available from all online booksellers, and to order from any High Street bookshop.

'Football Rules for Girls' is the new book for girls who don't want to be one the sidelines when their men talk about football.
