The third session of FSF’s 5-part series on David Goldblatt’s The Age of Football: The Global Game in the Twenty-first Century focused on the 119-page chapter 4 titled: “This Storm Is What We Call Progress: Football and the European Project.”
Moderated by Lindsay Krasnoff [read her comments here], the 29 participants grappled with a variety of themes in the work. Not only did Goldblatt ably respond to questions from around the world on a rich set of topics and countries, but the Spurs supporter also lavished praise on ex-Arsenal striker Ian Wright’s performance on BBC Radio 4’s “Desert Island Discs”!
The series continues on Tuesday, June 30, again at 2pm US Eastern (7pm UK). We will discuss “The Fragmented Worlds of Asian Football” and “Football in the Americas” (that is, CONCACAF), with Andrew Guest as moderator.
