    This book was recommended to me by a friend who knows that although I do not follow football, I enjoy books about white collar crime and other forms of corruption, topics which I find interesting to learn about.However, what I did not enjoy about this book is how the author has allowed his passion to blight the story by using the book as an outlet for his anger Instead of writing a balanced account of the facts, the author used provocative language to swing the story politically left When I sa This book was recommended to me by a friend who knows that although I do not follow football, I enjoy books about white collar crime and other forms of corruption, topics which I find interesting to learn about.However, what I did not enjoy about this book is how the author has allowed his passion to blight the story by using the book as an outlet for his anger Instead of writing a balanced account of the facts, the author used provocative language to swing the story politically left When I sat down for a relaxing evening reading about a topic of interest, I found myself feeling like an angry socialist had been ranting at me about how unfair the world is Andrew Jennings should take note of how a passionate investigative journalist can write a book about white collar crime without it coming across as a power hating money jealous complaint by looking at Oliver Bullough s Moneyland or Daniel Ammann s The King of Oil These books have minor underlying political slants they were written by journalists after all but ultimately allow readers to form opinions of their own.Disappointing

    Andrew Jennings with the B.B.C s Panorama programmes first exposed the criminal cess pit that is F.I.F.A I remember watching some of those broadcasts Jennings 2014 update The Dirty Game uncovers a monumental scandal in World football that has been operating for decades and that has only been fully exposed in the last few years Bribes, kickbacks, fraud, money laundering, match fixing, embezzlement and life spent in the trough of a rich gravy train for the criminals at the head of this or Andrew Jennings with the B.B.C s Panorama programmes first exposed the criminal cess pit that is F.I.F.A I remember watching some of those broadcasts Jennings 2014 update The Dirty Game uncovers a monumental scandal in World football that has been operating for decades and that has only been fully exposed in the last few years Bribes, kickbacks, fraud, money laundering, match fixing, embezzlement and life spent in the trough of a rich gravy train for the criminals at the head of this organisation.For fans of the beautiful game can now read that at international level that beauty is only skin deep Of course, any Jack be nimble who trousers a few hundred grand from a bank will certainly disappear behind bars for a tidy stretch, but there is another set of laws for high flyers such as Blatter and Co.Has Mr Jennings helped to put this corrupt house in order I doubt very much Blatter has been replaced at the helm by Gianni Infantino He was implicated in the FIFA corruption scandal in documents released in the Panama Papers.It would have been interesting if The Dirty Game contained details of the F.B.I s involvement, although I understand the Feds do not disclose details of their work I did like this book for uncovering the dirt on these creeps that I have long detested i.e Blatter, Havelange and Jack Warner et al, but felt the text sinks into repetition and hops around in it s chronology, so at the final whistle gets three stars

    An eye opening book that unravels mysteries and stories that were not highlighted enough in the media because of FIFA s influence around the globe A must read for every football fan and every anti corruption enthusiast Any news regarding FIFA officials will feel even better to my heart and mind from now on.Andrew Jennings must be celebrated as he is truly the unsung hero of the game s fans.


  4. Cyrille Honoré Cyrille Honoré says:

    Jennings n est pas le meilleur crivain qui soit mais la qualit de son travail et l ampleur de la corruption qu il d taille rendent ce livre important pour ceux qui aiment le foot mais d plorent qu il soit dans les mains d une mafia.


  5. Joao Miguel Joao Miguel says:

    I found this book quite entertaining, although the Author has a very one sided point of view on the topic, maybe due to his journalist background This ruins the criticality of the book but nonetheless some good inside information on the topic that keeps you thinking.

    Ontluisterend verhaal Niet goed geschreven, qua stijl lastig te volgen als je geen insider bent het boek veronderstelt toch vrij veel voorkennis.

    Incredible


  9. Rob Kemp Rob Kemp says:

    Jennings is in his element pulling apart the corrupt sham which Blatter oversaw, insightful and infuriating for a fan of the game

    Interesting book with lot of insights into the world of professional scumbags without a snippet of consciousness.
