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 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”, considers how the coronavirus pandemic will transform soccer. In particular, how the crisis might reduce the number of professional clubs. The second chapter, "Do Tactics Matter?", is 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. I will post a new essay every two months, until I reach about 50,000 words. As a reward for early readers, all orders today are discounted to $4.99. Later, it will cost $9.99. You can read it on any phone, tablet, kindle or computer.
