"Fascinating" (Sunday Independent)

"Sports Book of the Year" (Sunday Times)

"A revelation. Anyone interested in Spain's two biggest teams can learn something new from this labour of love ... tackling tricky subjects with skill and weaving them into an engaging story. For that, this book stands out from the rest." (talksport.com)

Présentation de l'éditeur

*** Nominated for William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2013 ***



It's Messi vs Ronaldo, it's Catalonia vs Castilla. It's the nation against the state, freedom fighters vs Franco's fascists. It's majestic goals and mesmerising skills, red cards and bench brawls. It's the best two teams on the planet going face to face and toe to toe. It's more than a game. It's a war. It's Barcelona vs Real Madrid.



...Only, it's not that simple. From the wounds left by the civil war to the teams' recent global domination, historian and expert on Spanish football, Sid Lowe lifts the lid on sport's greatest rivalry. Lowe has spoken to the biggest names and the forgotten heroes who defined their clubs. Men like Alfredo Di Stéfano and Johan Cruyff as well as the only survivor of the most politically charged game in history, the Barcelona striker who knocked Madrid out of the European Cup for the first time ever, and the president who celebrated his club's defining moment by taking a midnight dip in the Thames.



By exploring the history, politics, culture, economics and language, while never forgetting the drama on the pitch, Lowe demonstrates the symbiotic nature of the relationship between these two football giants. In doing so he reveals the human story behind this explosive rivalry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Read For Barca Fans And Madridistas Alike 3 janvier 2014
Par Craig McLay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Sid Lowe's smoothly written and highly entertaining history of these two great football clubs dispels many myths and cuts right to the core of a rivalry that is easily one of the biggest in the history of the game.

Whether you count yourself as a Barca fan or a Madridista, a devotee of Messi or Ronaldo, this book will give you a better picture of the historical forces that have shaped two clubs from their formation through the Spanish civil war, their competing philosophies, and some of the titanic personalities who have come and gone.

Unless you speak Catalan or Spanish, Sid Lowe's coverage of La Liga for The Guardian is about the best (and certainly the least hysterically biased) football reporting there is, and he certainly doesn't disappoint with this full-length report on the past and current state of the union of the top two clubs in that preeminent footballing nation.

No matter what your club preference is (mine happens to be Barca), you owe it to yourself to read this book. There's plenty of great material in here - and that's probably about the only thing both sides would agree on.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating Read, Great Author 20 juin 2014
Par GS4815 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Over the past year, football journalism/literature has become one of my favorite genres for casual reading. Sid Lowe, an acclaimed journalist who writes for ESPN and the Guardian (among others), weaves social and sporting history with anecdotes about two of world football's greatest clubs.

Those who are intimately familiar with Spanish/Catalan history as they apply to both Real Madrid and Barcelona may find some of the material redundant. Thankfully, I was not in that camp and thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Lowe's insights into Spanish culture, society, and language through the lens of its most celebrated football clubs. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about the history of these two clubs or Spanish history as expressed through football.

Par Usni - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This book comprehensively details the history of the rivalry, from 1902 to present day. Of course you cannot understand the rivalry without understanding the Spanish Civil War and this is where Sid Lowe shines with a ton of detail on those dark days. Personally I thought the best part was the chapter on the Alfredo Di Stefano transfer which I found very similar to the story of how the Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees changing both clubs forever. Barca obviously didn't sell Di Stefano but they, like the Red Sox, whiffed on a chance to acquire/keep one of the greatest players of their respective sports.

The only flaw of the book I felt was that it felt a little thin when it came to the rivalry present day. It has a detailed overview of Mourinho vs Guardiola but I felt Lowe didn't devote enough pages to Messi vs Ronaldo, ironic considering they are the ones on the cover. Lowe wrote almost nothing on Ronaldo's transfer from Manchester United and little on how Messi ended up at La Masia.

But really that's a small nitpick on a otherwise great book. If you want to buy just one book on El Clasico this is the one to buy.

The pictures of Messi and CR& on the cover will definitely deceive who bought this book looking for contemporary, more individualistic feuds. This book covers many (I mean MANY)years of History, Geopolitics and cultural conflicts between Barcelona (the city) and Madrid from the perspective of those two teams.

I recommended it for those who are fond of History, not soccer.

Sid Lowe is a Spanish football genius, the equivalent of a Messi or Ronaldo in the world of football pundits. Fear and Loathing in La Liga: Barcelona, Real Madrid, and the World's Greatest Sports Rivalry is a masterpiece, something that explains the true greatness of the Barca/Madrid rivalry. Put it this way: you won't understand the importance of "El Clasico" until you read this book.

Yes, this derby is bigger than anything in the sporting world. Bigger than the Yankees and the Red Sox. Bigger than the Lakers and the Celtics or Duke and UNC. Even bigger than the Cowboys and Eagles or the Packers and the Bears. It's that big, a rivalry that makes the WORLD take notice.

He breaks the rivalry down from every angle: football, revolutions, politics, great players, dynasties, anything you can imagine. He proves that it is a game that matters on and off the pitch.

And this is a book that matters when it comes to wanting to learn about Spanish football because we all know that Barca and Real Madrid is the pinnacle of Spanish and, you could certainly argue, world football.

People interested in the history of the game will be engulfed in this text. So many things are to be learned and this is certainly the place to start.

Don't watch another "El Classico" or even La Liga match without first reading this book. It will make everything click and you will get more out of the games, knowing how far these two teams have come. Neither was spared from tragedy and neither was free from obstacles. But today they both stand as the giants of world football.
