by Dempsey, Luke

Club soccer is exploding in popularity: here is everything fans need to know.

Written with verve from a passionate fan’s perspective, Club Soccer 101 is the essential guide to the 101 most storied club soccer teams in the world—from renowned powerhouses like Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Boca Juniors, Liverpool, Manchester United, A.C. Milan, and Real Madrid to rising American teams like the Los Angeles Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, and Seattle Sounders. The book features you-were-there stories of each team’s greatest games, historic moments of glory and disappointment, and most famous (and infamous) players—from Pelé, Maradona, and George Best to Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, and Ronaldo in our own time. The book also includes statistics for both the casual fan and the die-hard fan. Set to publish just as the season begins, Club Soccer 101 will be an authoritative, opinionated, and fun-to-read guide to the world’s favorite sport.

Luke Dempsey is one of the funniest, most charming narrative companions I know. This book is the perfect vessel for his genius and one of the world's great reference books. I will keep it next to my television, so that I will have a wholesome way to kill halftimes.
