Power, Corruption and Pies 2 collects the best articles to have appeared in the independent football magazine When Saturday Comes between 1997 and 2006. It was an era when the football bandwagon became a juggernaut, apparently with no one at the wheel. In spite of rampant commercialisation, the game none the less retained its appeal, even among those for whom almost every season is a sequence of disappointments. This new WSC anthology reflects the big issues of the era, from the rise of the Champions League to the disappearance of old grounds, and offers heartfelt opinions on everything from the heyday of football boardgames to the calamitous decline of the FA Cup and Delia Smith's unusual half-time announcements. Throughout its existence WSC has provided a platform for innovative football writing. Widely known authors such as David Conn, Dave Hill and long-standing contributor Harry Pearson all feature in this book. Most of all, WSC gives space to the view of those who know football best: the supporters.
