The perfect resource for the statistics junkies, tactics lovers, and analysis gurus who follow the beautiful game

This book debunks a few long-standing myths from the world of soccer. It examines the aspects of the game that are often overlooked, ignored, and taken for granted, and explains how and why football is a sport which is regularly misinterpreted. After taking a look at legends from the past and trends for the future that are outlined here, readers will never watch the game in the same way again.
