The Eastern European Chronicles II

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 second of two special issues - part one was released a month ago - celebrating the greats of Eastern European football across 14 nations, we travel to Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic, Georgia, Slovenia and Ukraine to rekindle some of the game's greatest names. 

Across 156 pages, you'll find some of the very best art, design and feature writing on the following, all tucked behind that Tony Svedin cover:


  • The glory of Dinamo Tbilisi and the tragedy of Vitaly Daraselia
  • Unfit, awkward and inconsistent: the genius of Georgi Kinkladze
  • Josef Masopust: the blueprint for all modern midfielders
  • Antonín Panenka and the eternal chip
  • The Czech Republic at Euro 96 and Euro 2004
  • Robert Prosinečki
  • Croatia at France 98
  • Hristo Stoichkov
  • When God was Bulgarian at USA 94
  • Yordan Letchkov doesn't care what you think
  • Is Oleh Blokhin the greatest Eastern European footballer of all?
  • Valeriy Lobanovskyi and the science of Dynamo Kyiv
  • The summer Igor Belanov and Oleh Protasov lit up world football
