Cover
Author: Calvin, Mike
Publication year: 2018
Language: English
Classification: 796.334
ISBN: 9781780896311
Notes:
First he revealed the extraordinary lives of football scouts in 'The Nowhere Men.' Next he unearthed the pressures on football managers in 'Living on the Volcano.' Then he chronicled the hardships of young players striving to make it in 'No Hunger in Paradise.' Now in 'State of Play,' in what marks the pinnacle of a career investigating the human stories of football, award-winning writer Michael Calvin turns his eye to the biggest story of all - the game itself. From mental health to money, concussion to Champions league, fan-owners to oligarchs, women's football to world cups, Calvin gets under the skin of the beautiful game, and reveals why it is truly the game of our lives.
