Soccer FAQ

Soccer FAQ: All That's Left to Know about the Clubs, the Players, and the RivalriesSoccer FAQ: All That's Left to Know about the Clubs, the Players, and the Rivalries by Dave Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book that covers everything soccer...including the origins of the word "soccer".  I learned so much and was greatly entertained in the process.  Soccer FAQ is a collection of anecdotes spanning the history of this game, the greatest of games.

I was surprised by how much coverage was given to the history of Soccer in the U.S. and was also surprised by the breadth of this work.  Pele's World Cup exploits, United's air disaster, list's of top players and managers, and more were included(as you would expect) but there were stories from all over the globe.  Stories from India, Africa, Japan, lower divisions, mob football, Gibraltar, and more filled these pages with tons of information and hours of entertainment.

This is a great work that any Football/Soccer fan will greatly enjoy.



I received an ARC of this book from the publisher.
