Description du produit

Revue de presse

The authoritative inside account of how world football is run. --Observer

Présentation de l'éditeur

What's wrong with Football today? In June 2011, Sepp Blatter was elected - uncontested - as president of Fifa once more. Despite attempts to halt the vote amidst allegations and accusations of corruption, the show went on.

As How They Stole The Game, David Yallop's classic expose of the dark heart behind the beautiful game showed when it was first published, Football was rotten from the top down. In the book Yallop reveals the story of João Havelenge, Fifa President from 1974 to 1998, the Godfather of football, and how he turned a religion to millions of fans into a multi-billion dollar business, riven with suspicious deals and unexpected payments.

Can you watch and wonder about Qatar after reading this book.
Can you really care about the world cup.

While the circumstances under which Argentina won that 1978 World Cup decisive game against Peru are definitely sketchy, I find this a very biased, awful book. In my opinion, this material is a rant worthy of a tabloid, written by a self-righteous author who obviously despises Latin Americans. Knowing the football (soccer) animosity between the English and the Argentines, "How They Stole the Game" appears to be fueled more by envy than an investigative effort. Well, David Yallop should consider writing a book about England's 1966 World Cup victory, which is widely regarded as controversial, if not scandalous. What a humbling effort that could be. Lying and cheating could happen anywhere, right?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing. Extremely One Sided. 10 février 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

Being a football fan I was looking forward to reading this book. Unfortunately, the author could not bring himself to keep even a minimum of objectivity.
I also think that FIFA is a corrupt organization. I also know about the accusations against Havelange in Brazil which means that I am very sympathetic to the author's arguments.
However, the author made sure that he lost all credibility by using a vindictive and biased style. This book is clearly written for the tabloids.
Not to fall in the same trap, here are a few of my objections:
- He displays a hatred for Latins which is totally irrelevant to the subject.
- He makes outrageous claims without proof and cites no sources.
- He explains away anything even remotely unpleasant the English have ever done in the World Cup (are we to believe good English boys don't even make mistakes ?)
- He lies about facts ! (there is a passage where he describes de Argentina-Poland game in '78, his description misses a penalty !!! awarded to Poland) Not that it matters but how can we believe the rest of the story when someone misses the obvious.
- He derides Argentina's "Arab side" ??!! (I thought the country was Spanish/Italian of sorts)
- He only acknowledges Brazilian and English "contributors" (not the most balanced approach when you investigate football, where are the Germans or Italians ? for instance)
- He finds absolutely nothing unusual about the '66 World Cup even when he does with all others (does the identity of the winner have anything to do with that one ?)
But he enticed me to buy the book. A great marketing ploy indeed
