It’s episode two of the TSS Book Club! We’re reading “The Age of Football: Soccer in the 21st Century” by David Goldblatt. You don’t need to have read the book to enjoy these episodes, I promise.
Chapter two is all about soccer in the Middle East, from the Egyptian ultras role in the overthrow of Mubarak to that little kid with the blue-and-white-striped-plastic-bag Messi jersey.
