Football is at the heart of British culture – yet never has it been in greater turmoil.

Once, football stood for passion, community, honour, even beauty. The game is in danger of losing its lifeblood - and its soul.

In The Beautiful Game? David Conn, the game's most respected investigative journalist, sets out on a journey through the heart of our national game, exploring how the sport has failed - and who is to blame. This is a book for those who keep the faith, who believe that the sport itself, stripped of the greed and self-interest blighting its organisation, still has values, and can still be beautiful.

‘For a fascinating insight into the causes, and the creators, of the game's ills this is a superbly told tale’ Independent
