One thought on “The Anatomy of England

  1. Simon

    We ve waited a long time, but there are now such a lot of good books about football In Jonathan Wilson we already have a very good writer on the sport I think he is going to become one of the great football writers.

    It s obvious that Johnathan Wilson s Anatomy of England is a unique and magisterial work but in my opinion it contains a couple of annoying flaws Wilson s stated objective is to concentrate on the lesser known matches that shaped England s football evolution but how can you write a book on the history of without including 1966 or 1970 Wilson s objectivity begins to feel like negativity rather quickly, I like my football authors to be a little positive about their subjects These minor flaws in n [...]

    It might seem odd that Wilson chose to follow up a book like Inverting the Pyramid, one with such a broad, all encompassing sweep, with one that seems to have such a narrow focus not merely a book about England s national team, but one that focuses on ten specific matches many of which its readers are unlikely to have seen to make its point Yet, where else could he really have gone Inverting the Pyramid picked up so many strands of thought and left them tantalizing unresolved or unexamined that, [...]

    Very interesting Loved reading about the build up to each match possibly than the match itself Was pleased with how it focused on matches other than the most famous, or the best wins.I did find the early stages heavy reading as I did not know the protagonists, but the book was written in a way that I was always intrigued with the next piece.Very interesting how attitudes of the public never change.

  5. Stuart

    A history of the English national side, focusing on ten matches, only 2 of which I can remember Holland 96, Croatia 07.Very enjoyable I think Wilson is usually very good at striking a balance between the zonal marking type stuff that can get a bit dry but is worth knowing, and the typical narrative He treads that line very well again here The focus of each chapter is one of the ten games, but he does a nice job of linking them together.8 10

    Anyone who wants to write about sports should read Wilson s oeuvre He does it better than anyone.
