The Religious Significance on Violence in Football

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The above emotive response was recalled by the late music disc jockey John Peel with reference to the match between Liverpool and AS Roma in the 1984 European Champions Cup Final in Paris. The goal scored by Allen Kennedy was the pivotal moment in the match and secured the win for Liverpool. The hyperbolic language that Peel used to express his state of elation is by no means unusual and is comparable with the sentiments expressed by so many football fans, who directly (as in the example above) or indirectly discuss the transformative effects that the game has on their lives.
