As Quoted in The guardian

Soccer was not meant to be enjoyed. It was meant to be experienced. The World Cup was a festival of fate – man accepting his hard circumstances, the near certainty of his failure.

Nigel Beale invited some time back to This week allowed me margins to stock my shelves on such, affording a sidelong survey of what I have actually read, especially in recent years: the contrast with ambitious books begun and abandoned is stark.
