Publisher's Summary

Barcelona is the greatest football team in the world, the greatest for a generation, and possibly the greatest of all time. This is the untold inside story of how the best and most loved football team in the world came to redefine how the game is played. We start with the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley, the game that ended the debate about whether Barcelona was the greatest team in the world and began a new one: are they the best ever? We are inside the winning dressing room and inside the mind of the team s coach, Pep Guardiola.
From there, the focus is on each of the iconic personalities of this team, telling its story through them, from its genesis in the late 1980s to their coronation in London: Guardiola; his mentor, Johan Cruyff; Xavi; Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi, perhaps the greatest footballer of all time.

In-depth analysis of the greatest team ever

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would, not just to Barcelona fans but football fans everywhere. It clearly shows where Barcelona made mistakes, what were the circumstances and how luck played its role into constructing one of the best teams ever. Everyone can learn something from this book, the Football Manager video gamers, the football fanatics, the casual fan, the sports fan or anyone into sports.

What does Graham Hunter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Graham Hunter, being the author, shows the excitement in parts that I would doubt can be portrayed when reading the book. Simple put, he does an excellent job narrating.

A Fantastic Insight

A fantastic insight into how the greatest team in the world was put together. Full of anecdotes from the people that matter; players, coaches, managers and board members. The author has obviously built up close and trusting relationships with the main protagonists in this book, with tales from the Barca dressing room to the inner sanctums and workings of La Masia. A compelling piece of work for any football fan.

Mesmerising

The best insight to the making and history of the greatest football team to have graced this unbelievable planet.

Graham has really done well to call on the views and experiences of every key member of this journey on this epic account of the Pep years and beyond.
