From the wildly popular soccer pundits, a hilarious and informative guide to the ever-more popular game.For more than a decade, the "Men in Blazers"two balding transplants from Britain named Rog and Davohave stood at the center of our growing national obsession with soccer. Hundreds of thousands of fans tune in weekly to their podcast and television broadcast to get their analysis of the previous week's matches and soccer news. But for all their passion, many American fans are new to the sport: they weren't following it (or weren't yet born) when, for example, Maradona scored two of the most remarkable World Cup goals of all time in 1986, or when George Best was leading Manchester United to glory on the pitch and boozing and rampaging off of it. Now, Rog and Davo fill in all the gaps with this hugely entertaining and idiosyncratic guide to the sport theyand welove. Published on the eve of the 2018 World Cup, this will be the book every soccer fan will need to have....

Men in Blazers Present Encyclopedia Blazertannica Reviews
Crappity crap crap crap. And we’re all the better for this. Thank you for this, gents.
Entirely sub-optimal. The final nail in the coffin of the publishing business as we know it.
Courage to all readers who embark on this heartless work, devoid of all human emotion and clearly ghost-written by Zlatan.
Bennett and Davis' show and podcast are consistently entertaining, but unfortunately Blazertannica feels as though it was hastily thrown together to ride the wave of the duo's popularity. The jokes are inconsistent, and the "encyclopedia" is a smorgasbord of largely dull and superfluous entries. Much of what makes the comedic pair so strong is their delivery and ability to feed off one another on air; unfortunately this formula isn't replicated in this book.
Pure Sub-Optimal Crap. I’ll forgive the lack of having Mexico with an excellent section on Miguel Herrera.
This felt like part memoir, part love letter to GFOPs everywhere. Much of the content will be familiar to long time listeners, but there is lots of behind the scenes photos and stories that let you get even more inside the mind of Rog and Davo. I enjoyed learning more about 70s and 80s England football culture and fandom, like the part on Subbuteo and Bobby Moore. Best book for prepping for the 2018 World Cup out today.
Rog and Davo have outdone themselves here. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more suboptimal than the podcast and the tv show, they release this book that is as crap as the rest. And I couldn’t have possibly enjoyed it more.
Balds win! Balds win! BALDS WIN!
