The Eastern European Chronicles I

Sale price£12.00

As magical as it is mystical, Eastern European football remains one of the great jewels of the beautiful game. 

From the bountiful but brutal years of life behind the Iron Curtain, through to the 1990s when Eastern European football was finally able to show its might to the wide eyes of the world, the sport has been at the forefront of society, science and innovation. 

In the first of two special issues - with part two coming in a month - celebrating the greats of Eastern European football across 14 nations, we travel to Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Yugoslavia to rekindle some of the game's greatest names. 

Across 152 pages, you'll find some of the very best art, design and feature writing on the following, all tucked behind that commanding Tony Svedin cover:


  • Hungary, Gusztáv Sebes and 1954
  • Ferenc Puskás: Immortal
  • Poland 1974 and a unique era of natural talent
  • Is Zbigniew Boniek Poland's greatest footballer?
  • The joy of Dragan Džajić, Yugoslav football's ultimate icon
  • Red Star 1991: the team that enthralled a continent
  • Yugoslavia's hypothetical wonderteam of the 1990s
  • Safet Sušić, PSG and a life lived for Bosnia
  • Velež Mostar: the club that once stood with giants
  • Edin Džeko: a hero fit for a modern Bosnia
  • The untouchable feats of Steaua Bucharest
  • Gheorghe Hagi: the master of fantasy
  • The mistiming of Darko Pančev
  • Hamlet and Henrikh: the Mkhitaryan dynasty
  • BATE Borisov: 13 titles in a row for a club founded in 1996
