How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won the F.A.CupThis Classic Humour Novel Chronicles The Momentous Journey Of Steeple Sinderby An Unremarkable Fenland Village From The Mire Of Obscurity To National Heroics This Unbelievable Feat Is Contrived By The Serendipitous Meeting Of Three Great Men Mr Fangfoss Who Cares Nothing For Football , Dr Kossuth A Hungarian Academic And Headmaster Of The Village School, And The Wanderers Captain Alex Slingsby, A Mighty Warrior Biding His Time In Quiet Sinderby For The Chance To Rise Once Everybody loves a good underdog sports story, and this one is about as charming as they get It s the story of a tiny rural village soccer team winning the biggest tournament in British soccer It s not really all that much about the soccer you probably don t need to care about soccer to enjoy this book I love soccer, and I love this book. I read this rather charming short novel as a little light relief before starting on the remaining books on this year s Booker longlist At heart it is a wish fulfilment fantasy about a village football team who, by following a mysterious Hungarian guru s plan, succeed in achieving every small football club s impossible dream, proceeding all the way to the F.A Cup final and winning that too If that were all there was to the story, it would be at best an interesting oddity and an enjoyable comic fantasy, but Carr s genius is making everything double edged, by choosing to tell the story from much later after everything has fallen apart By concentrating on the details and acute observations of the realities of life in small rural communities, he succeeds in adding a interesting layer to the story, indeed the narrator is much interested in the characters and their machinations than in the game itself. Nachdem mich Ein Monat auf dem Land begeistert hatte, war f r mich klar, dass ich auch dieses Buch lesen w rde, und das, obwohl ich mich f r Fu ball berhaupt nicht interessiere Es hat vor allem mit der Erz hlhaltung und dem Tonfall zu tun, dass mich Carrs B cher so ansprechen Die letzten 40 Seiten habe ich heute in einem Strandkorb sitzend in Hohwacht gelesen, und als ich gerade das Buch zuschlug, kam ein wei gekleideter Herr auf eine Personengruppe in meiner N he zu, die ich zuvor gar nicht wahrgenommen hatte Lautstark begr te er die Betroffenen , wusste sogleich zu berichten, dass heute nur Penner unterwegs sein, und begann die Armen nun zu belehren an welchen Str nden es sauber sch n w re, dass die Leute aber zu faul seien, 100 Meter zu gehen dass alle unter 35 st ndig ihr Smartphone griffbereit h tten ob die denn wirklich glaubten, dass sie so unerh rt wichtig seien Hier hoffte ich vergeblich, dass der Lautsprecher diese Frage einmal kurz reflektieren m ge Kurzum Innerhalb weniger Minuten hatte ich das Gef hl, jemand habe einen Eimer mit Unrat ber mich entleert.Was das mit den B chern von J.L Carr zu tun hat Vielleicht gar nicht so wenig Seine Erz hler haben ihre eigenen Sorgen um die sie weder Aufhebens machen noch viele Worte dar ber verlieren und versuchen, abseits des so oft als normal empfundenen Alltags, der laut ist und fixiert aufs Popul re, sich auf das zu besinnen, was ihr Leben ausmacht Sich in den Dienst einer Sache zu stellen, auch dort, wo Ansehen und Anerkennung nicht eben wahrscheinlich sind, schreckt sie nicht ab Fast, scheint es, ist die milde Melancholie die Medizin, mit der der Erz hler wieder ans Leben anzukn pfen vermag.Der Erz hler von Wie die Steeple Sinderby Wanderers den Pokal holten ist in der Dorfmannschaft des Fleckens Sinderby M dchen f r alles und k mmert sich um s mtliche Belange der Mannschaft nur als Spieler tritt er nicht auf.Wovon er in diesem Entwurf zur offiziellen Mannschaftschronik berichtet, klingt wie ein M rchen Die zusammengew rfelte Dorfmannschaft gewinnt mit der Strategie eines ungarischen Gelehrten Spiel um Spiel und tritt schlie lich zum Endspiel um den Pokal an.Auch wenn es einige Spielberichte in dem Roman gibt, erz hlt mit viel britischem Humor, ist das eigentliche Thema doch nicht der Fu ball, sondern wie Gemeinschaft und der Traum vom Erfolg das Leben ver ndern kann.Ein sehr sch ner Roman ruhig, unaufgeregt und very british. The incredible Leicester City side that pulled what arguably has been the most endearing and unsuspected rabbit out of a priceless hat in 2016, might in all probability have been influenced by the fictional exploits of the motely crew that is Steeple Sinderby Wanderers The factual miracle of Claudio Ranieri s side has an eerie similarity excepting the decrepit facilities of the Wanderers and a home turf that is barely above water level to the fortitude of Alex Slingsby s side.This moving laugh riot by J.L.Carr has all the ingredients of a sure shot bestseller Hilarious protagonists, a heartwarming swarm of humanity to egg on their heroes and a multitude of chaotic settings all make for one captivating roller coaster of a read The humour is fantastic and the plot is just about perfect neither overcooked nor underdone The road to Wembley from the unremarkable village of Fenland is the brainchild of the indefatigably resourceful Professor Kossuth a Hungarian immigrant Extrapolating his ingenious teaching methods at school to the game of football, Kossuth with the able backing of Mr.Fangfoss, who is the Chairman of virtually everything that could conceivably need chairing at Fenland, manages to mould together a team of diverse characters.Sporting an attire that is buttercup yellow the, Sinderby Wanderers main stars are Monkey Tonks a goal keeper who before the trials has never kicked or grabbed a football in his life, the Shooting Star Swift who once was a rising star for a 1st Division side but who is now leading a reclusive life and Alexander Slinngsby, who has sacrificed a potential career in football to tend to his invalid wife Diana This team strung up on short notice follows 7 precepts postulated by Kossuth and popularly known as the Kossuth postulates How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers proceed to demolish every opponent, obscure and decorated before finally dismantling the much vaunted Glasgow Rangers at the hallowed turf of Wembley takes up a major portion of this endearingly rib tickling book.
