deCoubertin Books Everton Harry Catterick - The Untold Story of a Football Great
HK$ 208.00
Everton Direct

Harry Catterick - The Untold Story of a Football Great As the manager of Sheffield Wednesday and Everton, Harry Catterick amassed more top flight points in the 1960s than all his rivals, finishing outside the top 6 on only one occasion. Yet, unfairly, he stands in the shadows of contemporaries such as Bill Shankly, Don Revie and Brian Clough in the public consciousness. Following extensive research, including being given unique access to the Catterick family’s documents and photographs, Rob Sawyer has recounted the life of this football great for the very first time. It is a story taking in a working class childhood in County Durham, adolescence in Stockport, a playing career stymied by misfortune, the struggles of a lower league managerial apprenticeship, heady times of top-flight success, managerial downfall and ill-health, contentment in semi-retirement and an untimely early passing – fittingly in the place he is most closely associated with. ‘Harry Catterick was a remarkable man whose firm grip on all playing matters was based as much on the sheer force of his will andpersonality as on any tactical nous or ability to read a player. I doubt if football will see the like of Harry Catterick again.’ — Joe Royle, Everton legend and former manager

*A New York Times Best Seller"Powerful. an important read." -Publishers WeeklyNew York Times* bestselling author Steve Almond takes on America's biggest sacred cow: football*In Against Football, Steve Almond details why, after forty years as a fan, he can no longer watch the game he still loves. Using a synthesis of memoir, reportage, and cultural critique, Almond asks a series of provocative questions: Does our addiction to football foster a tolerance for violence, greed, racism, and homophobia? What does it mean that our society has transmuted the intuitive physical joys of childhood-run, leap, throw, tackle-into a billion-dollar industry? How did a sport that causes brain damage become such an important emblem for our institutions of higher learning?There has never been a book that exposes the dark underside of America's favorite game with such searing candor.

Football Done Right
HK$ 185.00 HK$ 231.00
Kobo

Former NFL General Manager and three-time Super Bowl winner Michael Lombardi reveals what makes football organizations tick at the championship level. From personnel to practice to game-day decisions that win titles, Lombardi shares what he learned working with coaching legends Bill Walsh of the 49ers, Al Davis of the Raiders, and Bill Belichick of the Patriots, among others, during his three decades in football. Why do some NFL franchises dominate year-after-year, while others can never crack the code of success? For 30 years Michael Lombardi had a front row seat and full access as three titans-Bill Walsh, Al Davis and Bill Belichick-reinvented the game, turning it into a national obsession while piling up Super Bowl trophies. Now, in Football Done Right, Lombardi provides the blueprint that makes a successful organization click and win-and the mistakes unsuccessful organizations make that keep them on the losing side time and again. In reality, very few coaches understand the philosophies, attention to detail and massive commitment that defined NFL juggernauts like the 49ers and the Patriots. The best organizations are not just employing players, they are building something bigger. Football Done Right will explain how the best leaders evaluate, acquire and utilize personnel in ways other professional minds, football and otherwise, won't even contemplate. How do you know when to trade a player? How do you create a positive atmosphere when everyone is out to maximize his own paycheck? And why is the tight end like the knight on a chessboard?To some, game planning consists only of designing an attack for the next opponent. But Lombardi explain how the smartest leaders script everything: from an afternoon's special teams practice to a season's playoff run to a decade-long organizational blueprint. Readers will delight in the Lombardi tour of an NFL weekend, including what really goes on during the game on and off the field and inside the headset. First stop: Belichick

Football Development Index
HK$ 610.00 HK$ 678.00
Kobo

This book provides a systematic overview of football development from a scientific perspective. The proposed multidimensional framework of assessing the concept of sports development (with a deliberate emphasis on association football) goes beyond the conventional medal tally counts and win percentages. The conceptual foundation of the Football Development Index (Fdi) revolves around the understanding that football development grasps all athletic proficiency levels from grassroots to elite, and includes all football stakeholders. The proposed composite indicator of football development highlights three key dimensions: on-pitch performance, popularity, and development environment. The book provides both a conceptual discussion on football development as well as an overview of the various techniques used for constructing composite indicators. The practical implications of a multidimensional index on football development cover a vast array of fundamental sports economics and management issues such as performance measurement and management, fairness of funding allocation, sports development policy, stakeholder relations, and many others. While providing concrete guidelines and recommendations, this book also raises some fundamental issues, such as whether socio-economic determinants can affect a nation's sporting performance. Results turn out to be inconclusive, but going further with this notion, the correlations between socio-economic development levels and football development seem to produce more insightful findings, which shed light on more questions than the book has the ability to answer. The findings of this research may be adopted by Fifa and continental and national federations to objectify decision-making regarding development programs and activities. This book embodies a systematic assessment approach, which can be adapted to fit the needs of any football governing body and which provides an opportunity to benchmark the best global football development practic

Women's Football in the UK
HK$ 424.00 HK$ 470.00
Kobo

This book examines the complex ways in which girls and women experience football cultures in Britain. It extends current debate surrounding women and football (namely, how gender has functioned to shape women's experiences of playing the game), by focusing on organisational, administrative and coaching practices, alongside the particular issues surrounding sexuality, ethnicity and disability (not only gender).The book analyses football and gender to reveal the subtle forms of discrimination that persist. It is important to highlight the many challenges and transformations made by girls and women but more importantly to consider the ways power continues to operate to devalue and undermine girls and women involved in the game. The UK-based authors make use of their recent research findings to offer critical debate on girls' and women's current experiences of British football cultures. Overall the book reveals the present day complexities of marginalisation and exclusion. This book was published as a special issue of Sport and Society.

The U.S. Women's Soccer Team
HK$ 213.00 HK$ 236.00
Kobo

Updated through the 2012 Olympics. On a July afternoon in 1999, the proudest moment for U.s. soccer occurred in Pasadena, California. In the presence of more than 90,000 fans and viewed by another 40 million on television, the U.s. women outlasted China to win the World Cup. Although the United States has lagged far behind other countries in the men's game, it has been at the forefront when it comes to women's soccer. In the second edition of The U.s. Women's Soccer Team: An American Success Story, Clemente A. Lisi examines how the sport has gained popularity over the past few decades. While other books have been written about the team during a specific year, such as those focused solely on the World Cup win on U.s. soil, Lisi looks beyond this event, detailing the program's infancy and how it steadily became a model for women's teams around the globe. Beginning with the start of the U.s. program in 1985, Lisi recounts the development of the women's team, highlighted by their two first place finishes in the Women's World Cups (1991 and 1999) and four Olympic women's gold medals (1996, 2004, 2008, and 2012). In addition to chronicling the history of the team as a whole, this book offers mini profiles and photographs of some of the best players over the years, including Julie Foudy, Amy Rodriguez, Hope Solo, and Mia Hamm.

The only thing that Lenny liked better than sex was football.I stood there trying to get him to notice me, but it wasn't working, I went into the shower so that when I came out I would have that amazing smell that us girls get after a shower. Then I stood there in front of him, as the game was on. Now it was up to him, it was either his silly football game. Or me!

HOW TO BET FOOTBALL SMARTLY AND IMPROVE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING
HK$ 257.00
Kobo

Sport betting is a big business today especially for soccer. So much money is made by bookmakers every week that it is surprising how most punters continue to bet on soccer without fully understand the factors that influence the outcomes of the matches. Many have made efforts to gain more knowledge, betting techniques and skills on this subject but there is still relatively little information out there to equip the punters with a detailed mainframe to see the game with a clearer picture. This guide provides a basic understanding of the game of soccer at the readers' point. It does not cover areas like finding the best bookmakers or match fixing syndicate. It does not matter if you are more used to Asian Handicap, 1 x 2, Half-Time/Full-Time (Ht/ft), Over/Under or running ball as well as parlays. Here, we are only concerned with predicting the result of soccer matches. Whichever betting styles or staking methods you prefer in order to profit from your predictions is entirely depended on yourselves. The objective of this guide is to teach reader with the skills and knowledge to identify any soccer match. To determine the winning sides and the performances expected from teams in upcoming matches. It examines all the known factors that influence the outcomes of the matches as well as factors which I had discovered myself and will share here with you.

Nothing about history pops off a page better than illustrative photos. And nothing can tell the story of the first century of the Trojans better than the nearly 200 photos collected in Historic Photos of USC Football. The slow but inexorable transformation from muddy, sloppy fields, leather helmets, unprotected faces, and basic bleachers to modern turf, sophisticated head gear, sleek uniforms, and gargantuan stadiums is clearly and impressively shown in these images. Marion Morrison before he became John Wayne, the Trojans as they became the Thundering Herd, Coach Elmer Gloomy Gus" Henderson actually smiling, the Trojans in derby hats in Chicago celebrating, and Turd the forgotten mascot are all captured here through the camera's eye. Whether it's the drama of big games, the gimmicky publicity photos of a bygone era, or the unrelenting demands of practice, the story of this uniquely ambitious team is told here in gridiron detail.

Historic Photos of University of Alabama Football
HK$ 240.00 HK$ 300.00
Kobo

In 1992, the centennial year of the University of Alabama football program, the Crimson Tide won its 12th national championship. Few major college football programs can claim as many. Through the medium of photography, this book tells the story of the greatness of University of Alabama football, from its origins as a club sport in 1892, through the death of its most famous head coach, Paul W. Bryant. Over the course of those nine decades, Alabama would win 11 of its 12 national championships and forever change the face of college football. What began as a sport dominated by elite teams in the Northeast and Midwest, would, by the time of Bryant's death, be the hallmark sport of the American South. And the University of Alabama would, for many of those years, be the premier team in one of America's greatest football conferences, the Southeast Conference. Historic Photos of University of Alabama Football provides a window into a storied past that is the foundation upon which the program's future greatness will stand.

Computational Metrics for Soccer Analysis
HK$ 441.00 HK$ 490.00
Kobo

This book provides an account of the use of computational tactical metrics in improving sports analysis, in particular the use of Global Positioning System (Gps) data in soccer. As well as offering a practical perspective on collective behavioural analysis, it introduces the computational metrics available in the literature that allow readers to identify collective behaviour and patterns of play in team sports. These metrics only require the bio-dimensional geo-referencing information from GPS or video-tracking systems to provide qualitative and quantitative information about the tactical behaviour of players and the inter-relationships between teammates and their opponents. Exercises, experimental cases and algorithms enable readers to fully comprehend how to compute these metrics, as well as introducing them to the ultimate performance analysis tool, which is the basis to run them on. The script to compute the metrics is presented in Python. The book is a valuable resource for professional analysts as well students and researchers in the field of sports analysis wanting to optimise the use of GPS trackers in soccer.

Women, Soccer and Transnational Migration
HK$ 416.00 HK$ 462.00
Kobo

Estimated participation figures of almost 30 million worldwide make soccer the most prominent team sport amongst girls and women. However, making a living as a female player is only deemed possible in approximately 20 out of around 150 FIFA-listed women's soccer countries. This has led to a situation where highly skilled sports women have to migrate from their homelands to find employment with a professional team. Women, Soccer and Transnational Migration represents a substantial contribution to our knowledge on the development of women's soccer, to research into sports labor migration and sport and globalization more broadly. The book consists of three parts. Firstly, it provides an overview and an analysis of migration in women's soccer from its earliest forms until now. It then presents several case studies, delivered by scholars from around the world, illustrating how female players are increasingly being drawn to the Usa, Northern Europe and Scandinavia due to their ability to support professional leagues. Finally, all the themes and patterns of these case studies are drawn together to be able to compare and contrast migration in women's soccer to sport migration and globalization more broadly. This study not only makes recommendations for future researchers, but may also serve as an important source of information for those in charge of policy. As such, it is essential reading for students, lecturers, researchers and practitioners involved in sports migration and women's sport.

The book presents a collection of papers on a wide range of football issues. Football is a complex and dynamic phenomenon that needs to be examined in various social and historical contexts. It is influenced by social, economic, political and cultural factors while it also affects social life. As a miniature model of social life, football can almost be regarded as a magical game in the sense that it includes several indicators which provide us with the opportunity to collect information about the events taking place. The methods of analyzing and solving problems experienced on football fields and in social life should broaden the perspective, focusing on all actors of football.

Football, Ethnicity and Community
HK$ 562.00 HK$ 624.00
Kobo

Winner of the British Sociological Association Philip Abrams Memorial Prize 2017This book is a case study of an African-Caribbean-founded football club, Meadebrook Cavaliers, from the English East Midlands. Covering the years 1970 to 2010, it seeks to address the paucity of research on the British African-Caribbean male experience in leisure and sport as well as on the relationship between race and local-level football. The development of the club was intimately connected to wider changes in the social and sporting terrain. Based on a mix of archival and ethnographic research, the book examines the club's growth over four decades, exploring the attitudes, social realities and identity politics of its African-Caribbean membership and the varying demands and expectations of the wider black community. In doing so, it shows how studies of minority ethnic and local football clubs can shed light on the changing social identities and cultural dynamics of the communities that constitute them.

A History of Football in North and South Korea c.1910-2002
HK$ 523.00 HK$ 581.00
Kobo

For the Koreans, no sport has surpassed football in terms of its popularity and national importance, from the Japanese colonization era onwards. However, its importance has developed over time as a result of unusual and agonizing historical events, including the tragic split between North and South Korea. This volume attempts to assess football's changing political and cultural place in Korea over the course of the twentieth century, from the Japanese colonial period via the Korean War to the end of the Cold War. It analyses the development and diffusion of football in North and South Korea from the following angles: nationalism and regionalism, internationalism and globalism, patronage, and the Korean style of play. It particularly concentrates on the social meanings of the North Korean miracle in the 1966 World Cup and of South Korea's success in the 2002 tournament. The author shows that football in Korea has not only reflected changes in Korean society but helped to shape those changes.

Aux frontières du football et du politique

Fruit d'un colloque international qui s'est tenu en septembre 2015 à l'Université de Neuchâtel, cet ouvrage analyse le supportérisme comme pratique militante. Les contributions portent notamment sur le Brésil, l'Egypte, la France, la Russie, la Turquie et l'Ukraine. Mais au-delà de l'aire géographique ou culturelle, il s'agit de comprendre les ressorts de l'extension du supportérisme dans l'espace public et les liens que les supporters entretiennent avec d'autres formes de mobilisations ou d'actions collectives. L'interrogation dépasse le cadre restreint du stade en cherchant à comprendre comment des individus et des groupes qui consacrent une part importante de leur temps au soutien d'une équipe de football en viennent à défendre des causes politiques. Cet ouvrage constitue ainsi une nouvelle étape dans la construction d'une sociologie des pratiques européennes et transnationales du supportérisme.

In the Name of the Father: Family, Football, and the Manning Dynasty
HK$ 215.00 HK$ 268.00
Kobo

The story of America's most sacred and carefully constructed football dynasty is revealed in this unflinching family portrait. No family in the history of American sports has ascended to the storybook level of greatness and royal succession quite like the Mannings. Although the façade has occasionally cracked-murmurs of locker-room scandal, flashes of fraternal jealousy-this talented trio of quarterbacks is enshrined in American culture, epitomizing once-proud but dying nostrums of Southern Christian manhood. With remarkable nuance, "outstanding biographer" (*Dallas Morning News*) Mark Ribowsky traces their roots from red-clay Mississippi. From patriarch Archie's heyday at Ole Miss, with its complicated history, to the rise of his Super Bowl champion sons Peyton and Eli, a complex new cultural reality emerges. Drawing on dozens of new interviews, Ribowsky shows that the path to football immortality has not always been smooth, nor completely glorious. The result is a distinctly American saga of a flawed lineage that forever changed the game.

Is There Life After Football?
HK$ 163.00 HK$ 172.00
Kobo

* 2016 Best Book Award, North American Society for the Sociology of Sport*Is There Life After Football?draws upon the experiences of hundreds of former players as they describe their lives playing the sport and after their football days are over. The "bubble"-like conditions of privilege that NFL players experience while playing, often leave players unprepared for the real world once they retire and must manage their own lives. The book also reveals the difficulties affecting former NFL players in retirement: social isolation, financial concerns, inadequate career planning, psychological challenges, and physical injuries. From players who make reckless and unsustainable financial investments during their very few high-earning years, to players who struggle to form personal and professional relationships outside of football, the stories in the book put a very human face on the realities of professional football. George Koonce Jr, a former NFL player himself, weaves in his own story throughout, explaining the challenges he encountered and decisions that helped him succeed after leaving the sport. Ultimately, Is There Life After Football? concludes that, despite the challenges players face, it is possible for players to find success after leaving the NFL if they have the right support, education, and awareness of what might await them.

The American Soccer League
HK$ 893.00 HK$ 992.00
Kobo

It was the " American Menace" according to the Scottish and English newspapers of the 1920s. The best players in the Scottish leagues were being drawn to American companies that offered good jobs in return for playing on the company soccer team. The resulting squads, many of them ethnic, beat the best teams in the world at that time. This period from 1921 to 1931 were the "Golden Years of American Soccer." With the skyrocketing economic prosperity of the United States and its corollary flood of new immigrants to America's shores, came interest in soccer as a new form of sports entertainment. It grew rapidly around Northeastern industrial towns like Fall River, Massachusetts, and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. As with the popular North American Soccer League of the 1970s and 80s and its imported stars like Pele, the American Soccer League of the 1920s bid for the best soccer players in the world, creating a competitive, fertile environment for the growth of soccer. Unfortunately, few detailed records remain about these great teams and players. League records were lost after W.w. II and newspaper coverage was concentrated in smaller cities. Many of the League's heretofore unknown players possess no first name in print, and the unfortunate losers of matches and league championship games often went unreported altogether. During the later, tougher years of the Depression, many of the foreign players hunkered down in jobs or returned to their native countries. The disbanded American Soccer League was revived under the same name but very different circumstances in 1933, but never reached the same level of skill as during the 1920s. American Soccer League 1921-1931 is the result of Colin Jose's tireless determination to provide accurate history of soccer's evolution in the United States. Soccer was one of the most popular sports in the United States during the 1920s, often drawing huge crowds in relatively small towns to see the world's best players compete. Documented through th

Soccer Alive
HK$ 137.00

Soccer is a game that requires the player to be quick not only in movement but also in decision-making. Everyday soccer training focuses on improving technical and tactical abilities and almost completely neglects to practice the ability to read the game and make the right decision quickly. The use of all technical and tactical abilities in the game is of little use unless connected to the ability to make decisions. "Soccer Alive - The Game is the Best Teacher" provides a new training philosophy. It presents the new didactical approach of using game situations to improve the particular movements and behaviors which are used most frequently in the game. The book explains how to deal with game situations as a model for appropriate exercises and how to coach players practicing complex tasks. It is geared toward coaches and parents of recreational level through high school level players and players at the high school level and above.

How can a nation of about 16 million inhabitants regularly produce world- class players like Cruyff, Haan, van Basten, Rijkaard, van Nistelrooy, van der Sar, van Bommel, Robben and van Persie and world-class coaches like Michels, Cruyff, Beenakker, Advocaat, Stevens and van Marwijk?

The Rebirth of Professional Soccer in America
HK$ 322.00 HK$ 402.00
Kobo

The history of soccer in the United States is far richer and more complex than many people realize. Leagues competed in the U.s. as far back as the late 1800s, and in 1919 Bethlehem Steel became the first American professional soccer team to play in Europe when they toured Sweden. Multiple leagues existed during the early 1900s, but after the American Soccer Association folded in 1933, the country did not see a rebirth of professional soccer until 1967. It was a painful, hostile revival that saw dueling groups of American sports entrepreneurs fracture into two separate professional leagues, The United Soccer Association (Usa) and the National Professional Soccer League (Npsl). The Rebirth of Professional Soccer in America: The Strange Days of the United Soccer Association tells the story of this largely forgotten chapter in the sport's history. The USA and Npsl were ragged, misshapen pieces of a puzzle that refused to fit together, two leagues competing directly for fans and revenue. While the USA was a league sanctioned by Fifa but absent from the nation's airwaves, the Npsl was considered an "outlaw" league by Fifa but it held an exclusive television contract with Cbs. This would have been strange enough, but the USA league imported entire teams from Great Britain, Italy, and South America, including Stoke City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Cagliari Calcio, and Bangu. This book recounts soccer riots in Yankee Stadium, teams with dual identities, World Cup winners on the pitch, and a cast of characters featuring the likes of Phil Woosnam, Lamar Hunt, Derek Dougan, and Gordon Banks. Drawing on meticulous research and interviews, this book reveals the little-known story that unfolded on the field, in the boardroom, and across the country during this single strange season of professional soccer. Featuring an impressive group of global soccer legends, this book delivers a fascinating piece of soccer history for the growing legions of American soccer supporters, as well as

Incorporating cutting-edge concepts, from accelerated culture and claustropolitanism to non-postmodernity, he reflects on the demise of working class football cultures and the rapid media globalisation of 'the people's game'.Drawing on international empirical research and a unique and ground-breaking study of football hooligan memoirs, the book delves into a wide array of disciplines, examining fascinating topics such as the relationship between music and football; hooligans and ultras; the rise of social media and anti-modern football movements; and ultra-realist criminology. Football and Accelerated Culture offers a new way of thinking about sporting cultures that expands the boundaries of physical cultural studies. As such, it is important reading for anybody with an interest in the culture of sport and leisure, social theory, communication studies, criminology or socio-legal studies.

Africa is no longer on the periphery of world football but the economic disparities between the first and the third worlds hinder the development of the game. The author shows convincingly how Africa's advance within world football is tied to its national political economy and how the balance of power within Fifa still clearly favours its European members.

Fringe Nations in World Soccer
HK$ 424.00 HK$ 470.00
Kobo

Soccer is the most popular mass spectator sport in the world, gaining huge media coverage and reaching all levels of society in countries all around the world. More than just entertainment, soccer has proved to be a reflection of national, cultural, community and ethnic identity as well as an indication of the development and international status of post-colonial nation states. For those nations still at the fringes of the modern global game, soccer represents a vision of potential commercialisation, capable of generating foreign reserves and bringing in considerable economic power. This book explores aspects of the development of soccer in countries which have recently been marginalised in world soccer or have only erratic success on the international stage. These fringe nations include a greater part of Africa, the Usa, Australia, Israel, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, Indonesia, Thailand, Maldives and Sri Lanka, and while these countries are rarely noticed by the global football media, they nonetheless have great potential to excel, and many have a rich soccer heritage that still holds a place of central importance in the every day life of the people. This book was previously published as a special issue of Soccer and Society.

Upside Down Football
HK$ 229.00 HK$ 286.00

The long snapper is perhaps the most overlooked and underappreciated position in football. He spends a great deal of his career bent over a football, with a guy either kneeling seven yards behind him or standing back at 15 yards. In a sense, the long snapper has one job-to go unnoticed. If he is noticed, it probably means he's flubbed a snap-and for a long snapper, a single mistake can mean instant unemployment. In Upside Down Football: An Inside Look at Long Snapping in the Nfl, Ted Kluck shares the unique stories of these often-unseen high-pressure athletes. To fully explore the art of long snapping, Kluck attempts to perfect his own long-snapping technique, enlisting NFL snapping super-agent Kevin Gold and former longtime NFL snapper Justin Snow to help him. He also learns from elite NFL special teams coach Gary Zauner, experiences the camp circuit via snapping guru Chris Rubio, trains with snapping coach Nolan Owen, and talks with Green Beret and college snapper Nate Boyer. Upside Down Football features in-depth interviews with players, coaches, agents, and scouts, introducing the reader to men who have snapped at the game's highest level and to those who helped them get there. NFL and college football fans, along with long snappers of all levels, will enjoy this entertaining and enlightening perspective on the most underappreciated position in football.

Football and American Identity
HK$ 493.00 HK$ 547.00
Kobo

Learn the value of football to American societyNo sport reflects the American value system like football. Visitors to the United States need only watch a game or two to learn all they need to know about the American way of life and the beliefs, attitudes, and concerns of American society. Football and American Identity examines the social conditions and cultural implications found in the football subculture, represented by core values such as competition, conflict, diversity, power, economic success, fair play, liberty, and patriotism. This unique book goes beyond the standard fare on football strategy and history, or the biographies of famous players and coaches, to analyze the reasons why the game is the essence of the American spirit. Author Gerhard Falk, Professor of Sociology at the State University College of New York at Buffalo, examines football as a game, as a business, and as a reflection of the diversity in American life. Football and American Identity also addresses the relationship between football and the media, with much of the game's income generated by advertising and endorsements, and examines the presence of crime in football culture. The book discusses the development of the game-and those involved in it-at the Pop Warner, college, and professional levels, examining the social origin of players, coaches, cheerleaders, and owners. In addition, Football and American Identity analyzes the game's fans and their devotion to their teams, examines why Pennsylvania is considered the mother of American football, and looks at the National Football League and its commissioners. Football and American Identity examines: how individualism and achievement can lead to mythological statuswhy a person's occupation is the most important indicator of prestige in the United Stateswhat the consequences are of earning more in a year than most Americans make in a lifetimewhy equality is vital to the ethnic make-up of American football teamswhy teamwork is important-in

Globalised Football
HK$ 424.00 HK$ 470.00
Kobo

When studying the social phenomena in and around football, five major aspects of globalisation processes become evident: international migration, the global flow of capital, the syncretistic nature of tradition and modernity in contemporary culture, new experiences of time and space and the revolution in information technologies. In an exploration of these themes the collection provides insight into academic studies of football in Portugal, Germany, England, Spain, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique, China, Japan, South Korea, Russia and the Usa. At examining football-related phenomena under the headings of nations and migration, myths and business, the city and the dream, it shows how modernised football itself is object and subject in processes of both neo-liberal globalisation and counter hegemonic globalisation. While the contributions highlight characteristics of particular local and national contexts, the volume focuses on global centre-periphery-relations and migration trajectories of football professionals by analysing recent developments in post-colonial Portuguese speaking areas: The high ranking of "Portuguese football" not only serves in national(ist) discourses or in order to emancipate the country from a marginal position, it also turns Portugal into a football-talent exporter, confronting it partly with the same ambiguous consequences as Brazil and the African countries, who "lose" their football talents to the European centre. The receiving countries, again, include Portugal. This book was previously published as a special issue of Soccer in Society

The Soccer Diaries
HK$ 185.00 HK$ 231.00
Kobo

Although soccer had long been the world's game when Michael J. Agovino first encountered it in 1982, here it was just a poor cousin to American football, to be found on obscure UHF channels and in foreign magazines. But as Agovino himself passionately pursued soccer, Americans got wise and turned it into one of the most popular sports in the country. Agovino's love affair with soccer is a portrait of the game's culture and an intimate history of the sport's coming of age in the United States. Agovino's quest takes him from the unkempt field in the Bronx where he taught himself to play to some of the sport's most storied venues and historic matches. With Agovino we travel from school fields to Giants Stadium, then from England to Germany, Italy, and Spain, along the way taking in the final days of the North American Soccer League, the 1994 World Cup, and the birth of Major League Soccer. Offering the perspective of fan, player, and journalist, Agovino chronicles his obsession with the sport and its phenomenal evolution.

When France both hosted and won the World Cup in 1998, the face of its star player, Zinedine Zidane, the son of Algerian immigrants, was projected onto the Arc de Triomphe.

In Soccer Empire, Laurent Dubois illuminates the connections between empire and sport by tracing the story of World Cup soccer, from the Cup's French origins in the 1930s to Africa and the Caribbean and back again. As he vividly recounts the lives of two of soccer's most electrifying players, Zidane and his outspoken teammate, Lilian Thuram, Dubois deepens our understanding of the legacies of empire that persist in Europe and brilliantly captures the power of soccer to change the nation and the world.

Soccer in Spain
HK$ 668.00 HK$ 742.00
Kobo

Soccer has the unique ability to represent and strengthen different cultural identities and ideologies throughout the world. Perhaps nowhere can this be seen more prominently than in Spain, which has surged to the forefront of the world's most popular sport. The national team has won the last two European Championships and the 2010 World Cup, while the two preeminent club teams in Spain, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, have reached the semifinals of the Uefa Champions League in 2011, 2012, and 2013. Even before the sport became a global phenomenon, soccer had established a strong connection with Spanish identity and culture. In Soccer in Spain: Politics, Literature, and Film, Timothy J. Ashton examines the sport's association with Spanish culture and society. In this volume, Ashton demonstrates how Spain's soccer clubs reflected the politics of the region they represented and continue to reflect them today. The author also explores the often-tenuous relationship between the intellectual classes and the soccer community in Spain. Although some of the country's most highly-praised literary figures had a passion for soccer-which was often reflected in their work-many intellectuals deemed the topic unsuitable for critical study. Ashton also discusses how soccer films faced a similar rebuff from Spanish intellectuals, though the popularity of these films has grown in recent years. As soccer continues to be one of the modern world's most significant representations of globalization, its importance as a cultural touchpoint cannot be ignored. For anyone wanting to learn more about the relationship between soccer, politics, and popular culture, this volume offers critical insights. Soccer in Spain is a valuable read for students and scholars of Spanish political history, literature, film, and sport.

Things to Consider When Buying Football Gear in Hong Kong

Football or soccer is one of the popular team sports in Hong Kong. Both men and women are hooked on the sport since it encourages the spirit of sportsmanship and at the same time is physically challenging. Whether you are a casual fan, a football athlete, or a trainer, you know that it is important to wear the right football gear to protect you from injuries. That’s why it’s essential to consider these tips before choosing a football gear.

Mini-Cleats or Flat Soled Football Shoes

Football is not only played on a grass field but also on an artificial turf. Artificial turf is a solid surface that is made of synthetic material similar to natural grass. Playing on such hard surfaces will require you to wear football shoes with flat rubber soles since they grip better. Football shoes with mini-cleats also work and can make running on a grass field easier.

Impact-Resistant and Flexible Shin Guards

Another gear to take into consideration are the shin guards. In a football game, it’s sometimes expected that you get hit with a ball or a player’s foot in the shins. The soccer ball may be smooth when you touch it but once it moves fast in the field, it will feel painful if it hits your shins. That’s why it’s important to wear shin guards to shield your legs against strong hits, no matter which position you have in the game. Pick ones that are impact-resistant and flexible to enhance body protection and performance.

Comfortable and Protective Apparel

Apparel is a fundamental aspect of football so it’s essential to choose one that provides you comfort and better performance. For football jerseys, always pick ones that have moisture wicking properties. A jersey that wicks away sweat not only keeps you cool but also gives comfort, thus allowing you to perform better. If you are playing football in hot seasons, go for short-sleeved jerseys. Otherwise, choose the long-sleeved ones. To know if you got the right jersey, it should have just the right amount of looseness. If it’s too loose, it might get snagged when you are playing closely with other players. When it comes to football shorts, the right length should fall between your upper knee and mid-thigh. For socks, it’s best to go for long and thick ones, enough to provide a covering for your shin guards and cushioning for your feet.

Latex Soccer Balls

The staple of any football game is the ball. It’s ideal to go for ones that have a synthetic covering as they give a better response and provide a smoother edge than others. You can also opt for ones with four coatings of polyester and cotton. On the other hand, if you see soccer balls that are made from two layers of polyester, then those are inferior in quality. Also, before purchasing a soccer ball, it’s important to check the bladder which is the part of the ball that contains air. Select a bladder that is made of latex since it is a high-quality material.
