Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on 28 Nov. 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is the book the game in Europe has been waiting for. Charlie Connelly has penned the best book about football since Simon Kuper's 'Football Against The Enemy' six years ago.
Concentrating on the lesser-known countries like the Faroe Islands as well as the better-known ones, Connelly goes beyond the clubs and national teams to discover where they fit in their countries and what they mean to people.
The chapter on Sindelar the Austrian player is possibly the best piece of football writing ever whilst the chapter onm the Superga disaster gives a much better idea of that tragic event than the whole book that recently came out about it.
Helped by Sarah Williams's magnificent photography this book is essential reading for anyone who cares about the game and wants to find out more about Europe. Thgere are tales here that everyone should know and it is beautifully written if badly edited in places.

Excellent book. Worth the money. Charlie really captures the feeling of Europe, from the outer reaches of the of Atlantic islands to the War torn parts of Western Europe. From great names to less well known 'stars'.
This book is a great read and I can only say that Charlie is a great writer.

This is the type of football book I really enjoy. Intelligent and well written and with a focus on some of the countries that don't get the press attention they deserve. There are some great stories and lots of historical background to the teams and players. Well recommended.
