Rethinking Football

About the Book

So what do you do when you cannot watch football anymore? You will keep thinking about football anyway, just differently. You might begin to rethink the game more deeply. The coronavirus lockdown in 2020 pushed the pause button on live action. But it also fast forwarded some overdue debate about the future of the sport.

The first chapter in this essay collection, “The Great Reduction”, written during the lockdown in April 2020, considers how the coronavirus pandemic could transform soccer. In particular, how the crisis might reduce the number of professional clubs. Further essays are in progress. Stay tuned!

How does it work? This e-book is published in instalments, chapter by chapter. You buy the whole book now, then every time I add another piece you will automatically get the new, expanded version for free. You can read it on any phone, tablet, kindle or computer.
