Pressestimmen

'"Calcio: A History of Italian Football" reveals more about the national character than any dry study of politics or economics ever could. This is a hefty work but there is so much going on that the pace never slackens. Foot is a meticulous and knowledgeable guide to his complex subject and leaves the reader wanting to investigate further.' Andrew Baker, Daily Telegraph 'John Foot is head over heels in love with calcio, and his detailed, thematically structured account of its past and present is overwhelming evidence of that.' Independent, Sport Section Book of the Week 'An excellent chapter on British failures in Serie A but it's the many scandals that one keeps coming back to.' Observer Sport Monthly 'Foot's exemplary history shows how football and Italian society are inextricably intertwined, and is full of fascinating vignettes.' Sunday Times 'Highly readable! "Calcio" has set an impressive benchmark for football histories in general.' Sean O'Connor, Soccerpile.com 'Like a match-winning penalty taken in extra time, this is a book not to be missed.' Oldie 'Foot mixes serious analysis and comic storytelling to bring to life tales of paranoia and intrigue!' Scotland on Sunday '"Calcio" is an impressive addition: a comprehensive history of Italy's national obsession!' Sunday Business Post 'The jacket's claim that Calcio should be read "by anyone interested in football" is far too modest -- it should be read by anyone interested in either football or Italy.' Guardian

4.0 von 5 Sternen serious look at Serie A 5. November 2011
Von Brian Maitland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
An amazing tome on Italian soccer and the first in English that actually explains well why Italians play such defensive-minded soccer. The one point I thought he completely missed was his discussion of foreign players. There was not only an overemphasis on British players but barely nary a mention of modern foreign stars other than Maradona. I would have liked to have heard about Michel Platini, Boniek, Preben Elkjaer's fantastic season at verona when they won the scudetto, Michael Laudrup and even more on the Dutch threesome at Milan.

The corruption in the Italian game explains a lot of how Italian soccer is viewed both by Italians and those outside Italy. The most fascinating read is on the stars pre-TV explosion and to learn who the true heroes were in Italian soccer esp. the whole love him/hate him stuff on Gianni Rivera.

This ranks up there with Morbo (on Spanish soccer), Tor (on German soccer) and Futebol (on Brazilian soccer) as a must-have in any soccer fan's library. Do not be dissuaded by its length, this book flows well and the author is a first-rate writer.
4.0 von 5 Sternen The Italian Job 19. September 2013
Von Charlie Bartel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is JOHN FOOT"S second volume on the history and the Culture of Italian Football. He stats at the beginning with the Game's British Roots. He details the story of James Richardson Spensley, player, coach and referee from the game's earliest days. He goes into detail of the Catholic Church's opposition to the game in the days before professionalism and the national league. Considering how future popes where open fans of the game, I found this enlightening.

Italian football has been populated with larger than life figure such as Vittorio Pozzo (the only man to coach 2 World Cup winners along with a gold medal winning Olympic team), the Agnelli family (owners of FIAT and Juventus), the Mazolla's (father and son) and the Morattis (also father and son who owned the Internazionale club of Milan). They're all here along with others. I enjoyed the story of Gigi Meroni, an Italian version of the George Best tale (an extravagantly talented player who's career was cut short in tragic circumstances).

Italian football has been littered with scandal. Scandals involving gambling, corrupting referees, and boosting player performances through club administered doping programs. Sadly, I felt that FOOT treated this area with a shrug of a shoulder, as if "you weren't cheating you weren't trying." There is also not enough about the rampant violence that regularly takes place at stadiums around the country. I was disappointed not to read more about all of this.

If I can recommend it, I would also advise the reader to buy FORZA ITALIA by PADDY AGNEW. Taken with CALCIO these two books given a wonderful full insight to life in Italy and Football's place in that life. Think of it like ordering Antipasta with your main dish.

Brazil has won the World Cup 5 times, the most of any country in the world. But Italy has won it 4 times, loosing twice to Brazil in the finals (1970 and 1994). Many experts suggest the final of the upcoming 2014 tournament will be Brazil and Italy. If they're right get both of these books right away so you will be ready for the upcoming World Cup. Good stuff.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun 1. Oktober 2012
Von Daniele Purrone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As an Italian, I love this book. It offers a great view on the "calcio" phenomenon, both old and new.
It's not perfect: some translations are wrong, some concepts not fully understood (calling Bologna a "provinciale" is not correct, since Bologna is a region's "chef-lieu"), some names are written incorrectly.
Still, it is a very fun to read and gives a great "outside perspective" on Italian football!
