COLOR VERSION “Memoirs of a Soccer Player: From Bitola to Broadmeadow” is a culturally potent football odyssey, full of drama, laughs, tears and triumphs. Fundamentally, it’s a true story that takes you on a journey from one continent to another, and in doing so, highlights some of the intrinsic elements that have defined the evolution of the “Round Ball” game in Australia. At its core, “Memoirs” presents a semi-biographical account of author, Doug Pichaloff’s life, from a football perspective, in particular, it puts the spotlight on Doug’s soccer career as a player, a captain, a club secretary, a coach, a school teacher and above all, a mentor to anyone who has ever shown interest in the world game. In relation to this, the book also documents the rise of Doug’s beloved football club, a little-known team that began its life as “Newcastle Macedonia”, took flight as “Hamilton Red Star” and finally conquered Northern NSW as “Broadmeadow Magic FC”.Parallel to all of this, “Memoirs” presents an enthralling backstory covering over “100 years of International Football”. Yes, to make this book the ultimate historical artefact, authors Doug and Tony Pichaloff have put the spotlight on the origins of the game, including football at the “Summer Olympics” and the history of the “FIFA World Cup”, with special emphasis on the Yugoslavia national team and the Australian Socceroos. Complementing this epic “Soccer Chronicle”, is a sumptuous “Football Feast” of fascinating photographs, many that have never been published before. Furthermore, “Memoirs of a Soccer Player: From Bitola To Broadmeadow” is a heartfelt saga brimming with compelling cultural commentary, insightful family history and inspirational “soccer anecdotes” that will have you lacing up your boots and heading to the nearest oval.
