Book of the Month – When Friday Comes: Football in the War Zone by James Montague – Chapter Four – Israel

    Israel, a land fractured by its divisions and ringed with fences of intimidation. Hatred and hash, political factions turned football clubs. Life is lived on the edge; a party on the verge of disaster. Young faces with massive guns everywhere.

    The spectre of rocket attacks in the North clouds the kickoff of the football season. Liverpool, dubbed chickens, for their refusal to play their Champions League tie with Maccabi Haifa in the country forcing a change of venue to Kiev in Ukraine.

    Indelible stains on the passport, whichever way you look at it. The peculiar sex appeal of one Yossi Benayoun turned asset in a land of many questions and mistrust.

    Montague embarks on a fascinating, if terrifying tour of the holiest of lands; read on my friends, read on.
