In the meantime, we have this Top 10 to put together. I myself have just discovered The Global Game website, which I’m finding fascinating. I’m reading through its book of the same name, which we will look at this month.
Some of you on Twitter have already piped up. @sit_walk has named Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch, How Soccer Explains the World by Franklin Foer and Among the Thugs by Bill Buford as his favourite books on soccer, while @Mark_Jackman can’t get past the fact that I’m calling it “soccer” and not “football” (truce?).
I’ll bet there will be a lot of soccer titles just because of the timing, but do give them visit and pipe up, eh?
