The Harmony of the SphereLinks Between Football and Music


“Like chess, like music, football is circumscribed in time, yet creates its own temporality within set time limits; or, if you prefer, it owes its abstractedness to a capacity for constantly remodelling the present, or truly inventing it.

“One evening, we started to muse over the correspondence between music and football. I was not talking about Vindaloo, or why Seven Nation Army became Emmanuel Eboué’s theme tune at the Emirates, but whether, for example, it would be possible to use staves instead of chalkboards to explain, describe, analyse how a team functions as a living organism. Managers, so often described as ‘conductors’, would love it if they could notate movements on the field as precisely as a composer drops notes from a pen on a blank piece of manuscript paper”
