A fascinating survey,
This review is from: Outcasts! The Lands That FIFA Forgot (Hardcover)
While confessing an interest - I know the author Steve Menary - I can honestly say that this is an excellent book. At a time when football is increasingly dominated by money, Steve has travelled to countries ranging from Greenland to the Channel Islands to find people excluded from the mainstream but with more passion for the game than a whole host of Premiership stars. It's an insight into the politics at the margins of the game and a series of portraits of people and places I knew nothing about. Good for pub quizzes too - do you know who won the inaugural Wild Cup in 2006?
