Englischer Fussball

by Raphael Honigstein | 06 August 2009
PAPERBACK
Category: General Sport
Synopsis
Wembley, 1966. 1-5, Munich, 2001. Mexico '72 and Italy '90. Bobby Moore and Franz Beckenbauer, Paul Gascoigne and Jürgen Klinsmann. Forty years of hurt, tabloid rabble-rousing and 'Don't mention the war'. But what do the Germans really think of us? Do they even care? In Englischer Fussball , respected journalist Raphael Honigstein gives us a German's-eye view of our national game. Starting with the origin of the modern game in the late nineteenth century, Honigstein traces the development of English football from its public-school origins to the glory years of Ramsey and beyond. Is English football really about manliness, hard work, fair play and a never-say-die attitude? Why is there so little room in our game for individual brilliance? And just why are we so hung up on beating the Germans? Provocative, incisive and ever topical, Englischer Fussball is a book that explores the difference between how we see ourselves and how the rest of the world sees us. From hooligans to sex scandals, Wayne Rooney to Stanley Matthews, it asks what football can teach us about the English national character. 'Honigstein offers a perspective on England's football and its culture that is stimulating and rather fascinating' Observer
