Love You More Than Football is an unreleased Space album from 2000. Originally scheduled for release in July 2000, the album was to be a follow up to 1998’s Tin Planet.[1] The album, briefly known as Bulletproof, was later rescheduled for 4 December 2001 but was never released.[2][3]

Most of the 14 tracks on the album were short love songs. The album was produced by Edwyn Collins.[1]

The single "Diary of a Wimp" reached #49 in the UK.

Currently the album has been set as license free, so it can be freely downloaded from the internet if a copy can be found. This was confirmed by the singer Tommy Scott, who when asked in Bristol in October 2009, apparently told a fan: "Oh god, that was meant to be released about ten years ago... If you got a copy of it, then it's yours, I've chucked that project away since Gut [records] screwed us over."[citation needed].

As well as "Diary Of A Wimp", three other tracks from the album later surfaced on compilations by Gut. "Gravity" appeared on Greatest Hits, and as a digital single in 2002, whilst "Good Times" and "I Love You More Than Football" appeared on Greatest Hits & Unheard Bits.
