The author was a world class journalist and columnist with Great Britain's Daily Express who left it all behind to chase his idea of the American Dream, as a part of bringing big-time soccer to North America in the 1960s. After navigating the league through its Dark Ages, Toye helped establish a championship side for New York City, and worked long and hard to bring Pele to his Cosmos. Such a great accomplishment, however, would soon attract the mongrels to the door. Toye relates in excruciating first-hand detail the front-office lunacy which followed. American Soccer fans -if you do consider yourself a soccer fan - buy this book. Get some wisdom. Now! Before the mongrels invade once more.
