Présentation de l'éditeur

The Denmark side of the 1980s was one of the last truly iconic international football teams. Although they did not win a trophy, they claimed something much more important and enduring: glory, and in industrial quantities. They were a bewitching fusion of futuristic attacking football, effortless Scandinavian cool and laid-back living. They played like angels and lived like you and I, and they were everyone's second team in the mid-1980s. The story of Danish Dynamite, as the team became known, is the story of a team of rock stars in a polyester Hummel kit.

Heralding from a country with no real football history to speak of and a population of five million, this humble and likeable team was unique. Everymen off the field and superheroes on it, they were totally of their time, and their approach to the game was in complete contrast to the gaudy excess and charmless arrogance of today's football stars. That they ultimately imploded in spectacular style, with a shocking 5-1 defeat to Spain in the 1986 World Cup in a game that almost everyone expected them to win, only adds to their legend.

For the first time in English, Danish Dynamite tells the story of perhaps the coolest team in football history, a team that had it all and blew it in spectacular style after a live-fast-die-young World Cup campaign. Featuring interviews with the players themselves, including Michael Laudrup, Preben Elkjær and Jesper Olsen, as well as with those who played or managed against them, this is a joyous celebration of one of the most life-affirming teams the world has ever seen.

HASH(0x975d0834) étoiles sur 5 A solid book on a wonderful team 4 janvier 2015

Danish Dynamite: The Story of Football's Greatest Cult Team (2014) by Rob Smyth, Lars Eriksen and and Mike Gibbons looks at the wonderful Danish team of the 1980s and early 1990s.

Denmark didn't get a professional league with reasonable rules until the 1970s. Despite football being the big game in Denmark the national team had never managed to be good prior to the late 1970s. Kurt Nielsen was one of the first Danish managers of the National team who was a full manager in the modern sense and who could select his own team. He was friendly and allowed the players too much freedom. His successor, Sepp Pointek was a former German international who was serious about creating a good team. When he moved to Denmark he was very lucky and got a fantastic group of players who with more serious coaching became one of the best teams of the 1980s featuring the fantastic Laudrup brothers, Elkjær, Olsen and a host of others.

The team really was thrilling and would go on to remarkable success at the 1984 European Championship and the 1986 World Cup. The team then declined and went on to cause a great upset and win the 1992 European Championship.

If you like reading about soccer and great teams of the past the book is well worth reading. However, it would be better as a documentary. Apparently there is a documentary in Danish and perhaps English which would be great to see. For anyone who vaguely remembers the team but not in great detail it's a bit of a stretch. Hopefully the documentary will be released like the Kindle copy of the book.
HASH(0x975d0a80) étoiles sur 5 truly a dynamite read 19 avril 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed getting the story behind the story of the emergence of one of soccer's most fun teams--the Danish national team of mid-'80s. How a German manager (Sepp Piontek) was the perfect fit for this special generation of soccer players is the essence of the book. It's also not just a book about soccer. There is so much in here about Danish culture and, in the midst of the terrible hooligan '80s, we learn how the roligans (Danish fans) were able to show fun could be had by fans by acting, well, as human beings not animals at soccer grounds.

Had to laugh learning about Frank Arnesen's singing skills and the reason behind his rash challenge and sending off vs. West Germany was fascinating. Or, after hearing all the push-and-shove between Piontek and star striker Preben Elkjaer how they became best of friends after both retired from the game.

The book doesn't just cover the '80s. It follows through to Denmark's unreal run to the 1992 Euro title with a mostly new squad.

This is a soccer book that'll bring back memories and cause you to go right to YouTube to find some of the gorgeous soccer talked about on these pages. As someone who got to witness the Danes at Euro 1984 in Starsbourg vs. Belgium upclose, it brought back so many great memories.

as a Dane myself, I was looking forward to the book before it came out. Glad I got it. Learned of some other players from the 80's I didn't know of.

HASH(0x975d0f6c) étoiles sur 5 Long awaited book on a great team. 18 mai 2014

I have waited for a book on the Danish Dynamite side for a long time and thanks to Rob Smyth it has been worth the wait. The matter is very rich and the book is well researched and written. There are a couple of complaints. The writers should have delved more into the personalities of the key players. Also get more of the players perspectives. But still a page turner. Finished it in one day. I am from India and never saw 1986 World Cup. But I just love this great side.
