Description du produit

Revue de presse

There is a big piece of brain behind the brawn in this book my friends...There's a brilliant story about the derby in Sheffield - United and Wednesday. It is a cracking yarn...I have got to tell you, it's a good book, because it's got good stories in it, it's got human stories in it. If you want to read a little bit more about football culture and a little bit about the way it really ticks and I think what probably really drives people to sort of derby madness and derby day mayhem, get hold of Douglas Beattie's book. --Steve Bunce, BBC London Sports Show.

It's a real fans' book, I really mean it, that's exactly what it is, as I say, it touched me in more ways than one. Really, reading about the reasons why you support one team or another, or you are passionate about one team or another, it brought it all home to me and it made sense...You have a wonderful passage there, I really read the chapter on the north London rivalry, and the introduction which mentions it, with gusto, so much gusto --Dotun Adebayo, Radio 5 Live.

Best Sporting Reads of 2008 --BBC Sport

Présentation de l'éditeur

Why do football supporters choose one club rather than the other in a city where intense, often deep-seated rivalries exist? What made the choice for them; family ties, politics, religion, race, gang membership? Or were the clubs just different in what they stood for on the field as much as off it? Douglas Beattie spent two years getting underneath the skin of mainland Britain's biggest derby rivalries. These are the matches that are built up by the media as passionate, divisive and vitally important for the entire cities they are played in. These are the games that have a history of violence, fueds, social unrest and bigotry. But what is the truth about the origins behind these entrenched rivalries? And how does the enmity, so often displayed by supporters and, gleefully, by the media, reveal itself in modern times?With divisions going back as far as the English Civil War and preconceptions - mostly wrong - littering the landscape, Douglas visited Sheffield, Birmingham, north London, Manchester, Liverpool, the north east, Edinburgh and Glasgow to discover the answer to question such as, why do the citizens of Sheffield call each other 'Pigs', who was Wallace Mercer, the man who divided Edinburgh, what is it like to spend a day with Birmingham City's Zulu hooligans, why do the theme tune of 'Z Cars' and a banana loom large in the history of the 'friendly' Merseyside derby, and who really eats prawn sandwiches in Manchester?
