Présentation de l'éditeur

Real Madrid versus Barcelona is regarded by many as the most captivating fixture in world football. But it is not only the on-pitch battles that have forged their rivalry. From General Franco and bloody civil war to the Catalan city of Barcelona’s lukewarm reaction to Spain’s recent World Cup and European Championship triumphs, bitterness is never far from the surface.

In El Clásico, Richard Fitzpatrick charts the key political and historical flashpoints between the two clubs. With exclusive interviews with key figures, including Luís Figo, Hristo Stoichkov, Joan Laporta and Vicente del Bosque, El Clásico is the definitive guide to football’s greatest feud.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Good Book -- Best description of the rivalry I've seen 20 mai 2013
Par Futix76 - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This was a very good book, In fact I can say that this is the first book in many years that I actually read cover to cover without skimming through some of the content due to lack of interest. I'm an avid football fan and in a recent master's program I focused my studies on analyzing the effects of football on European nationalism. The deeper I dug into the topic, the more mesmerized I was to find out to what extreme the sport is imbedded in European culture. In fact, I was able interviews with some of the same people Richard Fitzpatrick interviewed for his book, which I thought was kind of cool. With that in mind, I was really looking forward to reading this book and for the most part it did not disappoint. However, there are sections of the book which feel like you're picking up a newspaper the day after a big match and you're reading the play by play from the day before. I guess if you're not familiar with the sport or the matches being recounted then it's something that may be appealing. However, if you're familiar with this rivalry then reading almost entire chapters on the play by play of a match gets you a little side tracked. But I guess this is done to put things into context for those not familiar with those events.

Pros: Easy read, unbiased for the most part and good for either the avid fan or someone trying to learn about the rivalry and its history.

Cons: Just a bit too much of play by play recount. Would have liked see more of the analytical implications of the rivalry in the current political/economic climate in Spain. Also, there are sections of the book that appear to be catering strictly to Real Madrid fans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a definitive classic 12 août 2013
Par Brian Maitland - Publié sur
There are so many soccer books now out there on Real Madrid, Barcelona and their rivalry, that it's a joy to find one so well done. This is IT, folks! Everything you need to know on the whys, hows and WTFs on maybe THE rivalry in world soccer today.

That's an emphasis on the now in this book so it's mainly focused on the current era of Lionel Messi's Barca and Cristiano Ronaldo's Real. Of course, the author delves into the history and the roots of the rivalry in detail. but he doesn't fall into that tired old trap of spewing forth Real is still the team of Franco (although Barca are still the de facto symbol of Catalonia even if their squad hails from all over Spain let alone the globe).

With the book heavily weighted on the present, it allows the past to breathe and be seen now much clearer. The author also does not stop at the main protagonists (players and managers) but delves into the fans groups, the presidents of each club, the youth academies, the alumni, the biased media conglomerates of each, the pressure on referees to give a bigger picture of the whole power game played out between these two giants of world soccer. He also shows how La Liga is suffering overall as a league entity and is not as healthy as the Bundesliga or English Premier League (well, the EPL is more a four-team oligarchy really with Manchester United, Chelsea and a rotating two others that has ranged over the years from Blackburn to Manchester City depending on whose owner has the deepest pockets).

Certainly, one of the best all-around books on soccer since 2000. A must-read for any soccer fan.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unputdownable 23 octobre 2012
Par Norbert - Publié sur
In one word Unputdownable. Richard Fitzpatrick gets the mix between football and history just right. The book is full of wonderful nuggets of background that will enhance most people's understanding of the rivalry between Barca and Real. The chapters flow by so easily that it ends too quickly - always the sign of a good read. On its own merit its an enjoyable read but I can also see myself referring to it when the future El Clasico games are on the box to refresh on the reasons behind the intense rivalry. If you have any interest in the beautiful game then this is mandatory reading.....

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Biased stories written for Barca fans. 9 décembre 2013

Clearly a biased book about Los Cules. This is a book written by an emotional Barca fan, and expect to hear the same old plain stories. Sorry, only one star.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Força Barça! 24 octobre 2012
Par Trempolina - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
As a Catalan Barça supporter since childhood, I was very curious to find out what was the author's take on the subject...this is why I engulfed this book. I really loved it, even though I was familiar with many of the stories from growing up in Catalonia in the 70s and 80s. It is a very well researched book and very balanced in a subject that I'd consider very difficult to remain impartial about. This book is so much more than a book on soccer; there is history, politics and identity involved. After reading this book, I'd say next time you watch a Barça-Real Madrid match, you'll see it with different eyes!
