9780803240476: The Soccer Diaries: An American’s Thirty-Year Pursuit of the International Game

Although soccer had long been the world’s game when Michael J. Agovino first encountered it in 1982, here it was just a poor cousin to American football, to be found on obscure UHF channels and in foreign magazines. But as Agovino himself passionately pursued soccer, Americans got wise and turned it into one of the most popular sports in the country. Agovino’s love affair with soccer is a portrait of the game’s culture and an intimate history of the sport’s coming of age in the United States.

Agovino’s quest takes him from the unkempt field in the Bronx where he taught himself to play to some of the sport’s most storied venues and historic matches. With Agovino we travel from school fields to Giants Stadium, then from England to Germany, Italy, and Spain, along the way taking in the final days of the North American Soccer League, the 1994 World Cup, and the birth of Major League Soccer. Offering the perspective of fan, player, and journalist, Agovino chronicles his obsession with the sport and its phenomenal evolution.

About the Author:

Michael J. Agovino is the author of The Bookmaker: A Memoir of Money, Luck, and Family from the Utopian Outskirts of New York City.

Review:

"A thoughtful and enjoyable narrative of his passion for the game"—Keir Graff, Booklist (Keir Graff Booklist 2014-06-01)

"Agovino’s journey will make soccer fans reflect on their own path on the lifelong love affair they have with the game they just can’t quit, no matter when that path started."—Jon Arnold, Goal (Jon Arnold Goal 2014-12-18)

"Agovino's The Soccer Diaries is the testament of those patient fans who knew in their heart-of-hearts that soccer in the US wouldn’t fade away, that it would grow into what we see today, and continue to do so."—Daniel Casey, Soccer Newsday (Daniel Casey Soccer Newsday 2015-02-16)

"[The Soccer Diaries] offers more than an insightful account of American soccer’s evolution over the past three decades—it also hits a chord with anyone who’s enjoyed meeting fascinating characters at pickup games, who’s discovered new friends and previously unfamiliar cultures through soccer, and experienced the emotional roller-coaster of soccer fandom."—Mike Woitalla, Soccer America Daily (Mike Woitalla Soccer America Daily 2015-03-24)

“An intimate and wonderfully written account of a sport that is increasingly shaking America’s soul out.”—Colum McCann, author of the National Book Award winner Let the Great World Spin and Dancer  (Colum McCann 2013-09-20)

“More than just one man’s thirty-year obsession with the sport, The Soccer Diaries is also the American odyssey of the sport itself. The Soccer Diaries is the incredible journey of the beautiful game over the last three decades. And it’s an education for even the most fanatical of supporters.”—David Peace, author of The Damned Utd and Red or Dead   (David Peace 2013-09-20)
