The Beautiful Game? : Searching for the Soul of Football Paperback / softback
by David Conn
Football is at the heart of British culture - yet never has it been in greater turmoil.
Once, football stood for passion, community, honour, even beauty.
The game is in danger of losing its lifeblood - and its soul. In The Beautiful Game? David Conn, the game's most respected investigative journalist, sets out on a journey through the heart of our national game, exploring how the sport has failed - and who is to blame.
This is a book for those who keep the faith, who believe that the sport itself, stripped of the greed and self-interest blighting its organisation, still has values, and can still be beautiful. `For a fascinating insight into the causes, and the creators, of the game's ills this is a superbly told tale' Independent
