England has singularly failed to make any impact at either the World Cup or the European Championships for more than 40 years--this book explains why, with the help of exclusive interviews with players, managers, and commentators There have been 20 major international soccer tournaments since that Saturday in July 1966 when Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup trophy for England. As each of these competitions has come around, a wave of expectation in the country has been followed, with seeming inevitability, by disappointment just weeks later. But with just three semi-final appearances to show for more than 40 years of effort and pain, why does England--as a team and as a nation--continue to believe that it has an almost divine right to succeed in international soccer? Tracing the fortunes of 10 England managers--Ramsey, Revie, Greenwood, Robson, Taylor, Venables, Hoddle, Eriksson, McLaren, and Capello--this book shows just why the England team has struggled to live with the weight of expectation. Full of dramatic on-field action and dressing room gossip, it vividly recreates the highs and lows, the agony and ecstacy, the close calls and the humiliations, and pinpoints precisely why things have always gone so badly wrong.
Exploring the cultural, ideological and economic legacies of Euro 2012

Categories: Sports & Recreation
Type: BOOK - Published: 2016-03-22 - Publisher: Routledge

European National football came together in the summer of 2012 for the 14th occasion. This book sets out to examine the enduring social tensions between supporters and authorities, as well as those between local, national and European identities, which formed the backdrop to the 14th staging of the European National football tournament, Euro2012. The context of the tournament was somewhat unique from those staged in previous years, being jointly hosted for the first time by two post-Communist nations still in the process of social and economic transition. In this respect, the decision to stage Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine bore its own material and symbolic legacies shaping the tournament: the unsettling of neo-liberal imaginings and emergent ‘East-West’ fears about poor infrastructure, inefficiencies and corruption jostled with moral panics about racism and fears surrounding the potentially unfulfilled consumerist expectations of west European supporters. The book seeks to explore the ideologies and practices invoked by competing national sentiments and examine the social tensions, ambiguities and social capital generating potentials surrounding national, ethnic, European identity, with respect to national football teams, supporters and supporter movements. This book was published as a special issue of Soccer and Society.

He’s British football’s philosopher manqué. The most successful England manager we never had and a genuine footballing legend. To many, an outspoken working class hero. To others – mainly his targets – he was a bolshy northern gobshite. Never less than opinionated, often controversial and always eloquent, here we present Brian Clough, in his very own words… On himself: ‘I wouldn’t say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.’ On Roy Keane: ‘I only ever hit Roy once. He got up, so I couldn’t have hit him very hard.’ On the FA: ‘I’m sure the England selectors thought if they took me on and gave me the job I’d want to run the show. They were shrewd, because that’s exactly what I would have done.’ On being nominated for a knighthood: ‘I thought it was my next door neighbour, because she thought if I got something like that, I’d have to move.’ On handling players: ‘We talk about it for twenty minutes and then we decide I was right.’ On drink: ‘Walk on water? I know most people out there will be saying that instead of walking on it, I should have taken more of it with my drinks.’ Duncan Hamilton is the author of the acclaimed Provided You Don’t Kiss Me: 20 Years with Brian Clough, for which he won the William Hill Sports Book of Year Award in 2007. He was the Nottingham Evening Post’s Forest reporter during the club, and Clough’s glory years. He is now deputy editor at the Yorkshire Post.

THE ABSURD ASCENT OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MAN IN FOOTBALL. THE MANAGER.

THE MANAGER takes the reader beyond the well-worn anecdotes, deeper into the stories of football's top men and the world they inhabit. Barney Ronay asks the important questions about these compelling characters - Where did they come from? Why are they so miserable? Where do they get their suits? Hilarious and absorbing, this book contains enough revelations to provide the most avid fan with a library of fresh tales. You'll never look at the man on the touchline in the same way again.
