Men in Blazers Present Encyclopedia Blazertannica

From the wildly popular soccer pundits, a hilarious and informative guide to the ever-more popular game.

For more than a decade, the "Men in Blazers"—two balding transplants from Britain named Rog and Davo—have stood at the center of our growing national obsession with soccer. Hundreds of thousands of fans tune in weekly to their podcast and television broadcast to get their analysis of the previous week's matches and soccer news. But for all their passion, many American fans are new to the sport: they weren't following it (or weren't yet born) when, for example, Maradona scored two of the most remarkable World Cup goals of all time in 1986, or when George Best was leading Manchester United to glory on the pitch and boozing and rampaging off of it. Now, Rog and Davo fill in all the gaps with this hugely entertaining and idiosyncratic guide to the sport they—and we—love. Published on the eve of the 2018 World Cup, this will be the book every soccer fan will need to have.

    Entirely sub-optimal. The final nail in the coffin of the publishing business as we know it. Courage to all readers who embark on this heartless work, devoid of all human emotion and clearly ghost-wri...

    So much more than a well-illustrated collection of jokes about pie and hair loss, the encyclopedia format serves as a backdoor biography for the two men, "an optimistic Londoner who believes everythin...

    Listen to it on audio! While they don’t read every entry, I could listen to Rog and Davo talk soccer to me any day of the week. ...

  • Ric

    Rog and Davo have outdone themselves here. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any more suboptimal than the podcast and the tv show, they release this book that is as crap as the rest. And I couldn...

  • Ian Hamilton

    Bennett and Davis' show and podcast are consistently entertaining, but unfortunately Blazertannica feels as though it was hastily thrown together to ride the wave of the duo's popularity. The jokes ar...

  • Tim Hoiland

    From "Accents" and "Achilles Feet" to "Zaha" and "Zidane" this book is as lively and weird as its authors. If you've listened to the podcast or watched the show, a lot of this material will be familia...
