Over the years we’ve created a number of self-initiated football projects that led to us working with Hardie Grant. This is now our 5th book with the publisher, having pitched the Red Mist concept in March 2018.

There’s more than one way to attain football immortality, and in Red Mist: Football’s Most Shocking Moments, BBC Sport journalist Phil Cartwright turns a witty and revealing eye over the mavericks, pioneers and anti-heroes that have defined football history. From Zinedine Zidane’s infamous headbutt to Eric Cantona’s kung-fu kick, Red Mist celebrates 30 iconic game-changing moments that broke the hearts of nations and spawned instant legacies. Featuring stories of red cards, dirty tackles, biting, pitch invaders and much more, you will be taken on an unforgettable journey of the (not so) good, the bad and the downright despicable.
