Theatre Of Silence - The Lost Soul Of Football (Second Edition)

Matthew Bazell

THE FOOTBALL BOOK WITH A ROTTEN EDGE!

They used to call it the people’s game – but not anymore; silent crowds, soulless all-seater stadiums, rip-off ticket pricing, corporate priorities, players diving, 24/7 fixtures, aggressive stewards, overbearing advertising, overpaid players, agents and of course - Sepp Blatter. All of these and more are the target of a relentless attack from Matthew Bazell, who asks why no-one’s singing anymore. In a heartfelt personal account, Bazell examines the way in which football, both on and off the field has lost its soul to greed, but argues that, ultimately it’s the supporters who have the power to reclaim the game.

This new edition includes updates, pictures, new material and a special guest chapter by John Lydon.
