"[Akinyemi] seamlessly weaves together academic and pop culture sources into the soccer sources to illustrate why soccer concepts appeal to a wider discussion, and vice versa." -- World Soccer Talk
"When discussing why teams on the back foot sometimes walk away with the full three points and it seems unfair, Akinyemi cites, among other sources, a speech by Chief Justice John Roberts and a book by Navy Seals discussing intentional cheating during training. It is these kinds of connections that will thrill soccer fans that like to take a wider view of the game."
