Descriptions du produit

"Bennetts has produced an engrossing, authoritative account of the game in his adopted country as it makes a growing mark in Europe" (Independent)

"An authoritative and adventurous examination of Russian football" (The Herald)

"This book does more than just help you learn to love Russia. It even helps you learn to love Russian football" (Simon Kuper)

Présentation de l'éditeur

In 1991, the collapse of the USSR seemed to signal the death of the Russian football industry, as the money, the players and the fans left. But now the oligarchs who profited from the post-Soviet turmoil are supporting the nation's football clubs and their dreams of glory, resulting in unprecedented success.



Along this journey into the heart of Russian football, Marc Bennetts meets the managers, oligarchs, players, pundits and fans that define the Russian Premier league, now the fastest-growing and most intriguing football league in the world. From Andrei Arshavin and the national team's adventures at Euro 2008 to the symbolism of a club from war-torn Chechnya lifting the Russian FA Cup, Football Dynamo uncovers shocking revelations about corruption, hooliganism and racism, but also the true beauty of the game and the country.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 dynamic look at the modern Russian soccer scene 25 août 2011
Par Brian Maitland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a look inside modern day Russia that you just don't find anywhere else. As the author pointed out early in the book, it's odd that so many travel books choose to ignore sports when that is probably one of e the best ways to experience a culture from the locals' POV.

When you read this you'll no longer think, as far as Europe goes, that Italy's Serie A has a grip on match fixing and corruption. Russia's professional leagues take corruption to levels that defy description although Marc Bennetts does his best to describe them in as much detail as possible.

The book covers many aspects of the Russian game from the popularity of Moscow's Spartak team from the communist era through to today capitalist age to even soccer in war-torn Chechnya. The funny thing is the least interesting chapter was the last on Guus Hiddink's reign as manager of the national team when Russia surprised many by making the semi-finals of Euro 2008. By the time you reach this stage of the book, the successes just are not as crazy and wild as the rest of the tales.

Although, I have the "revised and updated" version, Zenit St. Petersburg's 2008 UEFA Cup win is not covered in the chapter on Zenit. It's buried in the last chapter just in case you're wondering.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great background on the past and present in Russian football 29 juillet 2014

As a lover of football and someone interested in Russia, this book was thoroughly interesting and a great, quick read. It touched on a number of different teams in Russia,how the game is emerging from the Soviet period, the nouveau riche/oil money and how it has changed things, corruption, match fixing, and a little bit on fan culture. If there was one thing I was hoping for more about, it's the fan culture aspect and the feeling from the outside looking in that nationalism drives the terraces in Russia these days and average fans are pushed out or at least silenced, especially with teams like Zenit. Also, a more detailed look inside the ultras (though that is likely inaccessible to the author) would have made the book all the better, again from the outside looking in, it appears Russian fans have taken things away from the stadium to fight club like meetings in forests, something only very briefly mentioned in the book. As a football writer in a country with plenty of issues myself, I can understand the trend to avoid focusing on the negative, this book doesn't ignore the bad side, but also does a good job balancing things. It's an excellent read and leaves me wanting even more.

I've read a large amount of books on soccer in various countries and the author's detailed knowledge impressed me. I recommend this book to anyone who shares my passion for the beautiful game!
