How To Watch Football: 52 Rules for Understanding the Beautiful Game, On and Off the Pitch
About this deal
I was perplexed because the book was of course promoted on the Tifo YouTube channel, which regularly goes into much greater depth about tactics in particular. As such, I wrongly assumed that the target audience would already have a relatively good understanding of the game. The reality is, however, that I highly recommend Tifo's YouTube video content (in particular their Tifo IRL breakdowns of games) to all football fans. This book, however, I can only recommend to someone completely new to the sport, and even then I would probably say that "Inverting the Pyramid" is a much better "if you could only read one football book" candidate. For me, Tifo's "How To Watch Football" was a bad case of high/misguided expectations that were not met at all. Why did I have such high expectations? Excellent for anyone that likes football and a perfect way to upgrade your knowledge into the world of football if your understanding is limited.

The variety of topics covered was especially pleasing, and although the book can be read in around an hour or two, it made for a surprisingly edifying experience.
I do like the Tifo guys and their brilliant and funny podcast as my other half had them on every night during the World cup. I love Tifo Football's YouTube channel. Since the Russia World Cup, it has been my go to resource for understanding more of the game of football; tactics, the business and sub plots going on behind the scenes. Its more of a good collectible item for fans of the Chanel than a print version of the deeply analytical content of the tifo YouTube channel.
