书籍简介

The great footballers and coaches are rarely glimpsed from up close. They shield themselves from the tabloids, hide their personalities behind professionalism, and in the words of the cliche, 'do their talking on the pitch'. This book gets up close to them. The Football Men is not a series of celebrity profiles, and it doesn't attempt to unearth secrets in the players' private lives. Rather, it portrays these men as three-dimensional human beings. It describes their upbringings, the football cultures they grew up in, the way they play, and the baggage that they bring to their relationships at work. This multimillion-pound, multinational world is mostly inhabited by ordinary men. The profiles in this book are sometimes funny, but never breathless or sensational. Some of the profiles in this book are based on interviews; others are the results of time the author spent with that person; sometimes the profile is a story of a country. All are fascinating and shed light on their subject to reveal things you wouldn't expect.From one of the great sports writers of our time this is a penetrating and surprising collection of articles on the figures that have defined the modern sporting world.GY IN IO JM JO KE KI KN KW LC LK LS MM MS MT MU MV MW MY MZ NA NG NP NR PG PK PN SB SC SD SH SL SO SZ TO TT TV TZ UG VC VG VU WS YE ZM ZWCF CG CH CI CK CL CN CO CR CU CV CX CZ DE DJ DK DO DZ EC EE EG EH ER ES ET FI FM FO FR GA GE GF GL GN GP GQ GR GT GW HK HM HN HR HT HU ID IL IQ IR IS IT JP KG KH KM KP KR KY KZ LA LB LI LR LT LU LV LY MA MC MD MG MK ML MN MO MQ MR MX NC NE NF NI NL NO NU OM PA PE PF PL PM PS PT PW PY QA RE RO RU RW SA SE SG SI SJ SK SM SN SR ST SV SY TC TD TF TG TH TJ TK TL TM TN TR TW UA UY UZ VA VE VN WF YTFM FO FR GA GE GF GL GN GP GQ GR GT GW HK HM HN HR HT HU ID IL IQ IR IS IT JP KG KH KM KP KR KY KZ LA LB LI LR LT LU LV LY MA MC MD MG MK ML MN MO MQ MR MX NC NE NF NI NL NO NU OM PA PE PF PL PM PS PT PW PY QA RE RO RU RW SA SE SG SI SJ SK SM SN SR ST SV SY TC TD TF TG TH TJ TK TL TM TN TR TW UA UY UZ VA VE VN WF YTTO 1930S; 13.
