    One thought on “Spain: The Inside Story of La Roja's Historic Treble”

    1. "What we do, what we have done, is make something very difficult appear completely normal." Iker Casillas sums it up beautifully when he describes what Spain has achieved over the past decade. And this book follows the story of the Spainish national team in the conquest of three consecutive tournaments, something never replicated in world football, and gives us the background, the whys and hows this amazing feat was achieved. A truly must read for a football fan.

    2. One of my all-time favourite books. You know, the Euro-winning Spanish team of 2008 was my favourite football team of all time. So the first third of the book is an absolute joy for me, I had to fight my happy tears while reading it.I would love to read an extension about the 2014 disgrace at the World Cup, insights at the changing room, what Del Bosque told the team players.

    3. This is so enjoyable, it's written in a very conversational style and is so interesting but also quite moving in places despite knowing the ending. All the Spanish players seem so likeable and it's just a really good story.

    4. Very easy to read with great insight into the bubbles that the players and managers found themselves in. Loved the style of tournament writing as it was day by day, and not jumping around or missing days. It was a cumulative process which was well described.

    5. The Spanish national men's football team achieved something unique in 2012 when they won the European Championship for a second consecutive time, with winning of the 2010 World Cup coming between these two successes. This book tells the story of how all of this came about.There could have been a real danger of the book becoming simply match report after match report, but the author uses the personal access that he has had to the team, the technical staff, administrators, etc to really good effec [...]

    6. Excellent insight into what made the Spanish football team be so successful across three major tournaments.Superb behind the scenes insight.
