あらすじ・解説

Soccer has been America's Sport of the Future since 1972. Propelled by the rise of the World Cup, Premier League, the glory of the United States Women's National Team, Lionel Messi's demigod-esque talent and repeat exposure to Cristiano Ronaldo's preening abs, that future has finally arrived.

The Men in Blazers are two English-born, soccer-obsessed broadcasters who have savored the dizzying growth of the game along with millions of Americans, as if it was a rollicking, sporting telenovela playing out in real life. Written in such a way that fully immerses Americans in the history and culture of the world's game, their Encyclopedia Blazertannica relives the careers of such greats such as George Best, Maradona, Beckham...and Alexi Lalas. It examines fan culture, from the tactical variations of scarf tying, to the pathos of England's classic, yet doomed, World Cup theme songs, and explores the complex physics and ethics of both celebratory knee slides and fights between players, along with such burning questions as how professional footballers deal with hair loss. Any listener will feel as if they've had a front-row seat for the classic matches - seeing every dive and missed penalty kick, and hearing every vulgar chant - and will emerge with a deeper appreciation for the dodgy haircuts and ill-judged neck tattoos that populate world football.

Includes bonus material exclusive to the audiobook: an extended clip from the Men in Blazers podcast

Suboptimal Crap

I disliked all of it. Complete crap. No highlights or photos of blazers wouldn’t send this to my arch-nemesis.

Great job guys!

Fan-freakin-tastic!

This is by far one of the best audio books I’ve ever listened to. Especially the interview with Jerry Baker, first American to score a hat trick in English top flight football/soccer, at the end. Fan-freakin-tastic!

Peak Rog and Davo

This is what you would expect from Rog sand Davo. It’s funny, insightful, and also crap. Maybe I should not give it stars?

Courage.

Good but beware

Really funny for what it is, a selection of chapters from the book read by davo and rog. They choose their favorite or most noteworthy entries and read them and discuss. So just know ahead of time that it isn't the full book.

Perfect gift for any GFOP!

Whether you're a fan of the Men In Blazers pod or not, this a perfect gift for the soccer fan as well as the new fan just finding their footing in the sport. Rog and Davo provide a great balance of humor and soccer nostalgia, all while acting as the fun, knowledgeable professor that you wish you had for history class. This is a must-listen for all fans alike!
