Tim Marshall's "Dirty Northern Bastards" and Other Tales From the Terraces, published on the first of August, tells the story of Britain's football fans through the songs and chants that they serenade the terraces with. Some are rude, some are offensive, but most are witty and banterous and they're inseparable from the game itself. To really bring the chants out of the book, Elliott and Thompson partnered with FanChants.com to put the chants themselves in the ebook, and to allow readers of the physical book to listen on their phones or computers using a QR code sticker on the front of the book.
