Writers Who Like Football

Thank you New Books and More for bringing this to my attention.

I can't resist adding a personal favourite one by Oscar Wilde:


"Football is all very well as a game for rough girls, but is hardly suitable for delicate boys"



Albert Camus


George Orwell


Jean-Paul Sartre
