Description

Somewhere along the way football took a wrong turn, losing touch with fans. In a passionate, funny book of essays, The Ugly Game sets out to put football right by comparing it, often unfavourably, with American football, a sport, perhaps surprisingly, that's showing how money need not destroy fairness and competition.
