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?", appears in July. Stay tuned!
