Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Kuper's approach is more subtle. He always listens, but only rarely quotes verbatim. The footballer is a subject rather than a talking head. This approach produces an excellent result… his sureness of purpose allows him to devote his energies to producing something regularly insightful and sometimes very, very funny. There are excellent pieces on legends such as Franz Beckenbauer, Diego Maradona and Romario, but the best are on the Dutch. This owes something to Kuper's Dutch past but it is indebted heavily to the Dutch footballer'
The Herald 14/5
'I hate football. But the time you read this I might love it again… In his latest book, football's finest writer turns his attention to succinct profiles of the great and the good - mainly players (from longstanding legends like Cruyff and Becken bauer to current idols Messi and Fabregas) but also managers, actor Anthony Minghella and stadium architect Jacques Herzog… As well as the captivating profiles there are some revealing interviews, most notably with Glenn Hoddle, who cuts a rather sad figure reminiscing about his career as the sport keeps him at a distance, partly for being religious, a bit different and 'not one of the lads''
Time Out 19/5
'This hugely enjoyable collection of Kuper's features and interviews with the pros has a leaning abroad, especially towards Holland, but it's complemented with some fine new pieces on English players including David Beckham. Kuper's knowledge of the global game is second only to the vitality of his writing'
FourFourTwo Magazine June issue
'Five ages of a professional footballer…'
Extract, FT Magazine 14/5
'An up-close look at some of the giants of the game, describing the football cultures they grew up in, the way they play, and the baggage they bring to work'
TNT Magazine 9/5
"[Strikers] can play terribly and be praised for one goal, but defenders are hanged for one mistake"
Extract, Sport Magazine 20/5
'No one else writing in the UK has tracked the careers of footballers and managers in Kuper's fashion. He knows and cares about their family backgrounds, education and early years. He also has a rare international perspective, drawn from decades of travel around the continent and the ability to speak and read in several tongues. The chapter dissecting the ghosted autobiographies of Messrs Carragher, Cole, Gerrard, Lampard and Rooney is a masterful piece of literary criticism'
Financial Times 7/5

Présentation de l'éditeur

The great footballers and coaches are rarely glimpsed from up close. They shield themselves from the tabloids, hide their personalities behind professionalism, and in the words of the cliché, 'do their talking on the pitch'.
This book gets up close to them. The Football Men is not a series of celebrity profiles, and it doesn't attempt to unearth secrets in the players' private lives. Rather, it portrays these men as three-dimensional human beings. It describes their upbringings, the football cultures they grew up in, the way they play, and the baggage that they bring to their relationships at work. This multimillion-pound, multinational world is mostly inhabited by ordinary men. The profiles in this book are sometimes funny, but never breathless or sensational.
Some of the profiles in this book are based on interviews; others are the results of time the author spent with that person; sometimes the profile is a story of a country. All are fascinating and shed light on their subject to reveal things you wouldn't expect.
From one of the great sports writers of our time this is a penetrating and surprising collection of articles on the figures that have defined the modern sporting world.

Great football journalism 27 août 2012
Par Jammer13 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The premise of the book is to analyse players and coaches in football without directly interviewing them. Simon Kuper is one of the few football journalists who can get away with this. The subjects covered are wide ranging within football and culturally. Humorous and stimulating I was at first recluctant to buy the book knowing that it was a collection of previously published articles. In the end however I didn't in the least regret it.
