Football has never been more hyped, more central to Britain's culture than today. 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. Now revised and updated to take account of the 2004-5 season, 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a quite magnificent book...with a splendid eye for important detail and a determination to ask difficult questions, Conn reminds us of what is important- Conn's greatest feat in a book that is well researched and written with searing honesty is to show the game's magnificent resilience" -- David Wash * Sunday Times *
"For a fascinating insight into the causes, and the creators, of the game's ills this is a superbly told tale" -- Peter Corrigan * Independent *
"An important book" * The Times *
"Should be read by anyone who really cares about football" -- James Lawton * Independent *
"This is a must-read for all who love football" -- Delia Smith
