|520||1|||a "In The Beautiful Game is Over distinguished Professor of Business Finance John Samuels carefully examines the way football has been organised since its inception over one hundred years ago and comes to the conclusion that football, like any other twenty-first century industry, has gone global, both in its ruthless pursuit of profit through its reliance on free market forces, and in the marginalisation of its potentially greatest asset: the traditional football fan. Synthesizing an impressively broad range of football-related facts and analysis, The Beautiful Game is Over addresses the problems that currently lie at the heart of the game, whether this be corruption, inept corporate governance or the dirty money and dubious people coming into the game. It is truly an indispensable read for the committed football fan."--BOOK JACKET.|
