The Uruguay coach, Juan Lopez instructs the team to play defensively and keep it tight. As Lopez leaves the room, he gathers his team around and says :“Juan is a good man, but if we do defend then we will suffer the same fate of Sweden and Spain… The game is played down on the pitch.”And then as the game begins, “Boys, the crowd may as well be made of wood.

The quickest way to get it over with is to go get the bastards who started it.
Dick Butkus I worked hard at becoming a professional football player, just like society says you should. The key was probably three people: The good Lord, the offensive linemen I played with and great fullbacks that could block very well.
— Winston Churchill It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gleaned from a lifetime of trial, error, and writing it down, Hawkins provides advice everyone can benefit from in short, digestible chapters.
