Welcome to your ultimate roadmap to finally understanding professional football. There are many books out there that try to explain the basics of this brilliant and complex game, but something always seems to be lost in translation. It's true, football can be as clear as mud to the uninitiated fan. This creates a sea of ”dumbed down" explanations that only outline the shell of a beautifully constructed and deceptively intellectual American obsession. But it doesn't have to be that way!
This is a unique guide to football that provides a smorgasbord of topics to feast on, all in an easily digestible and readable tone. Every subject is covered, beginning from the question of what it is that makes football so popular, all the way through everybody's position and job on the field, and how everyone knows what to do. All condensed into ten concise and easy-to-read chapters, with a glossary at the end for reference. When you finish, you will be able to not only understand what's happening in a game, but maybe even clarify some things for some longtime fans. For people of all ages and levels of knowledge, this is exactly what you’ve been looking for to make sense of something you thought you would never quite understand.
At just about 100 pages and packed with over THIRTY colorful pictures and crystal clear diagrams, The Casual Guide to Football will turn even the most clueless outsiders into enlightened face-painting football fans, primed to debate any subject. Without taking a turn into a snooze fest of strategical microanalysis and rote memorization, you will emerge with a taste and grasp of football that no simplified “cheat sheet” or rushed summary could ever provide. In just an hour or two, get caught up on the game that everyone loves and find out what you’ve been missing. Right in time for the 2016 football season!
About the author: Matthew England is a professional football fan, and watches as many games as possible. Like you, he was once completely lost when there was football on TV, but gradually began to learn the game and has been hooked ever since. He spends most of his free time watching highlights of football games that, regrettably, occurred before he was born.
