After the gallons of ink that have been spilt over bullfighting, Spain's real passion has finally been recognised in Phil Ball's entertaining book, Morbo: The Story of Spanish Football - a lively combination of history, politics, analysis and anecdotes.

The thing about morbo, says Ball, is that it never dies. Instead, it grows ever bigger - each encounter adds yet more morbo.

He exposes the hypocrisy of Basque politics, the long shadow of Francisco Franco in Spain and, finally, the exuberance of that Catalan city: Barcelona.
