A seriously entertaining soccer gift book, offering a history based around 100 memorable quotes reflecting every aspect of the beautiful game
The sayings of the great and the good—not to mention the lovers and the loathers—of the beautiful game are used here as starting points for an informal, freewheeling, and entertainingly opinionated history of soccer. Exploring themes as diverse as the language of the sport, the role of the media, the role of money, and the careers of gilded geniuses from Pele to Ronaldo and maverick managers from Clough to Mourinho, and generously sprinkled with anecdotes and fantastic photographs, this collection is the perfect present for anyone with a passion for the game.
