About The Author

Nick Davidson

Nick Davidson works as a freelance graphic designer (he designed the cover artwork for Modern Football is Rubbish and Modern Football is STILL Rubbish). Nick studied History and Politics at Warwick University, he then completed an MA in Sociology of Sport at Leicester University’s Centre for Research into Sport and Society.
This is Nick’s second book. In 2002, he wrote Team Shirts to Ticket Stubs: A Visual History of Watford Football Club 1977-2002 which was published by Watford Football Club.
Nick is a lifelong Watford fan and, along with Shaun, plays five-a-side football every Wednesday night. Chasing 18-year-old kids around the football pitch makes him feel very old.

Shaun Hunt

Shaun Hunt works as a manager for a world famous fast food chain. Shaun studied History at Warwick University between 1990–93. Nick and Shaun played in the same football team at university, it took them several months to realise they were actually on the same degree course.
Born and raised in Cornwall, supporting Liverpool was the obvious choice. He is now the assistant manager of Cadbury Athletic under-10s. He plays football for the Spleen Team every Wednesday alongside Nick.

Nick Davidson and Shaun Hunt were hoping that their first book Modern Football is Rubbish would put right all the ills of the present day game. But, amazingly the administrators at club and national level took no notice and the putrification of the beautiful game continued. So they are hoping that Modern Football is Still Rubbish will do what the first one couldn’t.
