DescriptionHow do you fall in love with a game that ends in a draw 20% of the time? A game in which goals happen on only 10% of all shots and shots happen on only 11% of all possessions?
To truly love soccer, you need to love the moments between goals. Non-Goals illuminates these under-the-surface moments on a soccer field, unlocking the game by connecting on-field action to cultural phenomena that the soccer-curious will understand. Whether you're a fan or a non-fan, after reading Non-Goals you'll never look at soccer the same way again.

'Non-Goals' is the ultimate quick primer for the soccer-curious. Breaking down the game through relatable analogies like The Beatles, American history, and 'Moby Dick', Bob Bjarke manages to take what could easily become boring sports analysis and turn it into genuinely eye-opening fun. I'm sincerely inspired to watch more soccer after reading this book!
