5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and insightful, 31 Aug. 2011
This review is from: A Cultured Left Foot: The Eleven Elements of Footballing Greatness (Kindle Edition)
Every football fan can think of the things that marked out the greatest players they've seen, but this book goes further, trying to identify common features that all great players must have. It's a well-constructed list, with a range of obvious and less-obvious characteristics. The author compiled the list himself and then sent it out for comment to a huge number of football fans and others involved with the game; some of their responses are included as he defines what he means by each characteristic. There is much analysis of great moments, great goals, great matches, but also seemingly simple acts of genius too. This book will surely make any football fan recall particular moments, either when they saw a great player in action or perhaps when they saw a lesser play momentarily achieve that greatness that only a very small number can sustain. This book is engagingly written and is a real celebration of the game at its very best.
