Sport from the Armchair   

Lovereading view...

You can never take what you love too seriously. This book celebrates this fact. Instead of hydrogen to helium, it presents Pele to Sepp Blatter - 108 elements from the football pantheon arranged by their properties and behaviour on and off the pitch. It also includes a poster spanning over 150 years to offer an original perspective of the game.

Synopsis
