Um was geht es eigentlich im Fußball? Gute Frage. Die einen werden sagen: Taktik. Die anderen werden sagen: Kampf. Wieder andere werden sagen: Die Viererkette ist Mittel zum Zweck, um Pressing spielen zu können – oder so ähnlich. Reinaldo Coddou H. und Thomas Lötz sind der Meinung, dass Fußball immer auch eine Frage des Stils ist. In ihrem neuen Buch The Style of Football laden die beiden Fußballfreunde den Leser und Betrachter auf eine Zeitreise durch die Ära der großen Styler des Fußballs ein. Jene Typen, die dem Fußball abseits des Rasengevierts eine zweite Dimension hinzufügten: Wichtig war forthin nicht mehr nur "aufm Platz", sondern mindestens genauso wichtig war, wie der Anzug saß und in welchem Club man nach dem Heimsieg ausging. Begonnen hat diese Ära zweifelsohne mit dem Nordiren George Best (R.I.P.), heute heißen die globalen Stilikonen David Beckham oder Cristiano Ronaldo – und in den Jahren dazwischen ist jede Menge Platz für schicke Sportwagen, fesche Girls und harte Drinks. Und wenn manchmal auch ein schlimmer Pelzmantel oder ein aus der Zeit fallender Haarschnitt herausgekommen ist – geschenkt und gerne auch für dieses Buch genommen. Stil ist am Ende ja immer auch eine Frage des Geschmacks.

However, they start running small errands for a local gangster, King Benny. In the summer of 1967, they accidentally injure a man while pulling a prank on a hot dog vendor. Tommy, Michael, and John are sentenced to 12-18 months, while Shakes is given 6-12 months. There, the boys are systematically abused and raped by guards Sean Nokes, Henry Addison, Ralph Ferguson, and Adam Styler. During the boys‘ stay at the facility, they participate in Wilkinson’s annual football game between the guards and inmates, one that the latter lose on purpose to avoid reprisals from the former.

Michael convinces Rizzo, a black inmate, that they should play as hard as they can to show the guards they can fight back. Rizzo agrees, and helps to win the game. By the spring of 1968, shortly before Shakes‘ release from Wilkinson, he insists that they should publicly report the abuse, but the others refuse, knowing that no one would believe them. They all therefore vow never to speak of the abuse the guards put them through once they are all out. Thirteen years later, John and Tommy, now career criminals, encounter Nokes by chance in a Hell’s Kitchen pub and kill him in front of witnesses. Michael, who has become an assistant district attorney, arranges to be assigned to the case, secretly intending to botch the prosecution.

He and Shakes, who is a newspaper reporter, forge a plan to free John and Tommy and get revenge on the guards who abused them. Michael’s plan will only work if he can discredit Nokes and place John and Tommy at another location. Ferguson, when called in court as a witness for Nokes‘ character, is forced to admit that he, Nokes, and other guards abused boys. To clinch the case, however, they need a key witness who can give John and Tommy an alibi. Ferguson, a social worker, loses his job and family and is plagued by guilt for the rest of his life. Michael, Shakes, John, Tommy, and Carol meet at a bar to celebrate.

Shakes remains a newspaper reporter, living in Hell’s Kitchen. Michael quits the DA’s office, moves to the English countryside, becomes a carpenter and never marries. Carol stays in the city as a social worker and has a son, whom she names after the four boys. Review aggregator Metacritic gives it a weighted score of 49, indicating „mixed or average reviews.
