Book cover for Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport
In this book we want to introduce new numbers and new ideas to soccer: numbers on suicides, on wage spending, on countries’ populations, on passes and sprints, on anything that helps to reveal new truths about the game.

“For instance, you need an ethics unit that can investigate wrongdoing and is not under the president’s control—which would imply a big change from the Blatter-era FIFA.”
Simon Kuper, Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport

“For some of Europe’s indebted clubs, match fixing is part of the business plan.”
Simon Kuper, Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport

Simon Kuper
“Not many universities, opera houses, or aid agencies say no to sugar daddies. We think European soccer needs these people.”
Simon Kuper, Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport

Simon Kuper
“being large and rich helps a country win matches, but having a long soccer history helps a lot more.”
Simon Kuper, Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport

Simon Kuper
“In most industries, a bad business goes bankrupt, but soccer clubs almost never do. No matter how much money they waste, someone will always bail them out. This is what is known in finance as “moral hazard”: when you know you will be saved no matter how much money you lose, you are free to lose money.”
Simon Kuper, Soccernomics: Why England Loses; Why Germany, Spain, and France Win; and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport
