Later this week Professor Gordon McNeil along with Irvine Welsh launch the most interesting football book to hit the shelves in years - "Homo Passiens: Man the Footballer"
So to whet your appetite:-
Did you know that humans evolved running on two legs (bipedalism) to play football? Did you know that humans have domed heads and flat brows for subtle and controlled heading? Did you know that goalkeepers have opposable thumbs for saving? Did you know that the bioarticle that binds foot to ball and known as the mession has recently been discovered at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland?
These are some of the amazing findings of Professor Gordon P. McNeil of St Andrews University, Scotland.
He backs up his hypothesis with scientific research, such as the discovery of the elbow gene in defenders (ELB HIT Alpha-1) for violent fouling, with the discovery of the goal scoring hormone scorotonin, and with archaeological finds of football in prehistoric cave paintings, and carved stone footballs in Scotland depicting ancient football art (known as fitba’ spheres), and by the amazing finding of Greek vases from 300 BC showing soldiers protecting their private parts during a free kick.
The author of the amazing book Homo Passiens interviews Professor McNeil in various taverns around Scotland, in which the learned academic proves beyond doubt that humans evolved bipedalism to play football and that the species Homo passiens predates Homo sapiens by more than two million years.
Prepare to have your mind stretched, bent and warped as you discover the true origins of mankind and the missing link in human evolution.
In this book, Homo Passiens: Man the Footballer; you will enjoy Matt Kenyon’s amazing illustrations that back up the theory.
Football will never be the same again... Available in all the good book shops - soon!
