About this product
- DescriptionThese stories are all our stories. We weren't to kw it, but they'd change our lives. They follow the transformation of childish naivete into adult obsession. Though the exhilarating highs more often than t give way to crushing lows, these stories explain why football fans are forever under its spell. This book looks to the past, but its chapters shaped futures. Forty-four different backgrounds give rise to forty-four different journeys, from Italy to Inverness, from Arsenal to Australia - but while the team belongs to the individual, the emotions are overwhelmingly collective. While our relationships with the game may change, it retains an almost indefinable quality at its root - and as these stories show, it's a joyous quality indeed.
