Product description

The near future. The soccer world has is even more dominated by rampant commercial interests than it is today. Manchester Athletic, one of the Commercialship's most successful clubs, are having a poor season and are in danger of being relegated from the Commercialship for the first time in their illustrious history. With the campaign reaching its climax they sack their manager. Could Gerald Hubert, redundant modern languages teacher, be their saviour? The Beautiful Game is an entertaining satire on the crazily commercial world of modern soccer, television and even education. It also questions the notions of identity and professional expertise.
