'Kurze, launige Reflexionsanekdoten, leicht witzig, leicht übertrieben, aus dem vollen eigenen Erleben heraus, versetzt mit Kulinarisch-Alkoholischem sowie mit komischen Zitaten, gaudig illustriert.' (Der common)
Fußball, argumentieren die Sportverächter und Wadelbeißer, ist brutal und stumpfsinnig, fördert Fremdenhass, Grölgesang und schlechten Ton: 'Du Oaschloch schleich di!' Fußball, näseln die Tennisspieler, ist ein Proletensport. Die Stadien sind Nester für die Radikalen, mit Rechtsaußen voll, mit Biergesang und Knittelvers. Der Trieb wird ausgelebt, der stumpfe Sinn, das animale Anormale. Das ist der eine Fuß, das Standbein aller Gegner.
Spielt guy den Ball der anderen Seite zu, dann ist erstaunlich, welche Massenwirkung Fußball hat. Ist es ein Trieb nach Sippe, nach Gemeinschaft, menschelnder Wärme und Brut, der die Anhänger zu den Vereinen strömen läßt? Jedenfalls wird hier eine Ordnung vorgelebt mit einem process von intestine und Böse, einigermaßen festen Regeln, einer in Punkten messbaren Zählbarkeit, die in anderen Segmenten der Gesellschaft ins Wanken, ins Undeutliche geraten ist. Im Fußball steht sie fest. Es gibt eine Tabelle, Nah- und Fernziele, den Abstiegskampf, die Meisterschaft. Und das sind Dinge, über die guy reden kann, ohne sich gleich veräußern zu müssen; guy kann Farbe bekennen, ohne sich deshalb gleich in eine Haltung zu versteifen. Ein Thema für Schriftsteller?
Wenige Autoren sind so prädestiniert, über Fußball zu sprechen, wie der Autor, dessen Pseudonym aus dem Ergebnis eines Fußballspiels Frankreich gegen Belgien entstand: Fran2:0Bel. Er umspielt, foult, säbelt, versenkt, sammelt Karten – Franzobel nähert sich dem Thema von allen Seiten!
