Description de l'ouvrage

26 septembre 2013

*** 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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but falters at the end 18 avril 2014
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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 too long, just watch the el clasico instead 16 août 2014
Par Matthew Harris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
way too long, and, amazingly, despite the length, extremely limited in scope. I've actually only made it through half of this and I've decided to put it down for awhile, maybe a few months. It's just not very organized. The narrative is strangely repetitive and full of cliched and obviously forced quotations from odd meetings with old-time players in some room in the basement of the Bernabue ( thats probably spelled wrong). The writing is mediocre. Sid Lowe is no Geleano. In fact, he is not even in the same atmosphere. This book is more a rambling conversation than it is history or thoughtful analysis. and, again, way too long. one day I'll read the second half. Maybe the second half with have more energy and color, since presumably the author would be more familiar with the most recent era of this rivalry, but man, the first 150 pages are a real chore to slog through. I mean, there are only so many ways you can describe how great a player is. The book is at its best when dealing closely with the story of individual players. The historical context and cultural context is very weak. My expectations were way too high for this book. I guess i wanted it to be as exciting as watching these two teams play, but I don't know what I was thinking; that's clearly impossible. i did learn a thing or two from the first 150 pages, but the book doesn't sound authoritative. The author doesn't have the same command of language and history as Geleano.

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.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 I recommended it for those who are fond of History 20 juillet 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
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.
