Description de l'ouvrage

6 août 2009

Wembley, 1966.

1-5, Munich, 2001.

Mexico '72 and Italy '90.

Bobby Moore and Franz Beckenbauer, Paul Gascoigne and Jürgen Klinsmann.

Forty years of hurt, tabloid rabble-rousing and 'Don't mention the war'.

But what do the Germans really think of us? Do they even care?

In Englischer Fussball, respected journalist Raphael Honigstein gives us a German's-eye view of our national game. Nearly 150 years ago the English created a sport that the world has taken to its heart. Even today, English teams still fascinate audiences across the globe. So what makes our football special?

Starting with the origin of the modern game in the late nineteenth century, Honigstein traces the development of English football from its public-school origins to the glory years of Ramsey and beyond, exploring the culture and foundational myths of a peculiarly English invention. Is English football really about manliness, hard work, fair play and a never-say-die attitude? Why is there so little room in our game for individual brilliance? And just why are we so hung up on beating the Germans?

Provocative, incisive and ever topical, Englischer Fussball is the product of an outsider's life-long love affair with English football, a book that explores the difference between how we see ourselves and how the rest of the world sees us. From hooligans to sex scandals, Wayne Rooney to Stanley Matthews, it asks what football can teach us about the English national character.

"Honigstein offers a perspective on England's football and its culture that is stimulating and rather fascinating" (Observer)

"Hugely entertaining" (Independent)

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed 2 juin 2014

I was very excited to read Englischer Fussball. I've been reading Honigstein's articles for years. This book was a huge disappointment. It basically attempts to generalize and label the English people, and is at times insulting. I don't think Honigstein meant it that way, but he should have a better awareness of his message. There is so much more of a story to tell when it comes to culture and football, and to capture it would have taken more time and effort. Perhaps this is just a lazy book, and not necessarily insulting. But it is disappointing.

We always consider the England - Germany Football rivalry from England's point of view. But what do the German's think of English Football. This book goes deeper than ever to to apply German thinking to the past and present traditions of English football.

Honigstein, who writes in English as if it was his native language, is in fact German born. But he works as a sportswriter in London for a major English newspaper (the Guardian).

He investigates in depth the development of the domestic game in England. His chapters on British Soccer Media were terrific. The book's last chapter explores the rivalry at various World Cups (1966, 1970, 1990). He makes the argument that German's regard Italy as their natural rival, while the English, spurred on by their jingoistic tabloid media, still relives WWII through these World Cup meetings. He writes that Germany looks forward while England lives oin the past. A provocaitive argument.

This books is full of interesting ideas that flew in the face of my assumptions. But a word of caution. This book does not provide biographical stories about current and past German figures. If you want that let me recommend TOR by Uli-Hesse. But if you want a book that will provoke thought long after you finish, ENGLISCHER FUSSBALL is a great choice
