Eight by Eight Magazine returns and as always it is filled with great photography, illustration, and writing about the beautiful game, continuing to lead the way in football print excellence.
In issue 16, you’ll see that Eight by Eight have devoted 27 pages to “The Greatness Factor”, a celebration of football’s all-time best players – who’s undisputed? who’s nearly there? and who just might be one day? It kicks off with an intimate and compelling appreciation of Pelé, who’ll be 80 this year, by Eight by Eight’s writer-at-large, David Hirshey.
You’ll be familiar with the players joining Pelé in their top ten, but they’re also sought to help you see them in new way. Of course they’ve included Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Maradona, and Johan Cruyff, but you’ll see that the list isn’t quite as expected as you might think, with features on Lucy Bronze, Troy Deeney, Wilfred Zaha and a focus on Real Madrid.
Other highlights in the new issue include: The 50 most important people in football, Pep Guardiola on the prowl, the 20 richest football clubs, and the heartbreaking story of Hungarian star, István Tóth, who was executed by the Nazis in 1945.
