A compelling portrait of life in the professional grassroots of the game, from gritty northern towns blighted by post-industrial decline to ivory towers of academia and a seaside resort riven by a fans' civil war. The author spoke to owners, managers, players, and supporters of eight lower-division teams over the course of a season to discover the fierce passions and loyalties that sustain clubs unlikely to win anything other than the devotion of their fans. Published in 2020.
