Goodman appears as "Drunker Uncle". Bobby Moynihan plays a dowdy, weird, obnoxious woman who's surprisingly successful at seducing celebrities Appearances Throughout the melodramatic plot developments, much of the dialogue consists of descriptions of highway routes taken from place to place, with freeways referred to with the definite article, as in "the 10", a usage characteristic of Southern California English.

The heady Saturday afternoon of July 30th 1966 at Wembley Stadium was the crowning moment of the English game, when Alf Ramsey's team won the World Cup and the nation's fanatical football public consummated their relationship with the sport they had invented. John Moynihan's THE SOCCER SYNDROME is a celebration of that love affair.

Their latest work, Hockey Analytics: A Game-Changing Perspective, is a book that only Stephen and Christopher could . The only thing I would change is that the authors refer too often to other sports such as basketball and soccer.

Their latest work, Hockey Analytics: A Game-Changing Perspective, is a book that only Stephen and Christopher could write. It’s informed by years of working professionally in hockey and other sports. It’s a deep dive into how the game should be played. I think that is probably because they have an extensive background in basketball analytics, and their basketball analytics book is great as well. I am not sure all the same concepts really apply to hockey and even if they do, one or two mentions would have been enough.

As I strode along the graceful curve of the landing, I caught the changing reflections within that sparkling blue. I flipped back the cover, opening the book on a page with a handwritten scrawl. This book belongs to Mary Ibbots, December 1936. It all gave the appearance that the ball was trembling, shaking on its branch as if far too delicately positioned to be secure. The more I stared it, the more the ball shook. It jerked, quite violently. Either the thread holding it to the branch snapped, or it slipped free of the stem it had been hanging on. Either way, the ball abruptly dropped from the branch.

Moynihan was a football writer with whom I began a friendship in 1982 while covering the World Cup. But I didn't realise he had a unique gift for capturing the game's charm until his books The Soccer Syndrome and Soccer Focus were published in the latter half of the 1980s, just when.

The book is useful not only for individual change but also for group change. The Self 1, Self 2 distinction resonated with how I’ve been thinking about motivation. It reminds me a little of the driver (Self 1), elephant (Self 2) metaphor used in Chip and Dan Heath’s Switch: How to Change Things.

Soccer has undergone vast changes since this journalist wrote his book "The Soccer Syndrome" in 1965 - most dramatically in the festering problem of the behaviour of its supporters. In this book, John Moynihan offers a personal chronicle of his reactions to the game in the 1970s and 80s. Through a series of vivid pictures-in-words, he portrays the matches, players and events which have made a lasting impression on him, always going beyond the obvious. From Chelsea's cup win and Pele's retirement, to Heysel and Burnley's reprieve, takeing in World Cups along the way, feelings of elation alternate with moments of frustration and bleak sadness.
