Faith of Our Fathers : Football as a Religion Paperback
by Alan Edge
Alan Edge is a lifelong Liverpool supporter who grew up in an environment where team loyalties were embedded in working-class culture.
He was shocked to discover that his young son not only had not intention of following in his father's footsteps as a Liverpool fan, but preferred a Newcastle shirt because it was more fashionable!
Faith of our Fathers is more than a personal story; it is a universal tale written with a strong sense of pathos and a rare capacity to bring to life the concerns of fans who feel the game they grew up with is being eroded by commercial exploitation.
