Helmin & Sorgenfri
100 years ago, a group of young men founded a football club in northern Copenhagen. Lyngby Football Club. The first matches were played at a local airfield, but driven by pioneers and zealots, the club grew under the cover of a world war, municipal wars and dramatic confrontations on the pitch and in the boardroom.
In the book Blue Blood, the reader is taken on an eventful football journey, which unfolds against the background of extensive historical archive material and interviews with a number of key people who have all contributed to the club's history.
It is the story of ups and downs, triumphs and scandals and millions that suddenly disappeared and left the club in a deadly bankruptcy.
But it is also the story of the zealots who, just like 100 years ago, came together and led the club forward when things looked bleakest. About togetherness, opportunism and faith in youth.
About the fact that people in Lyngby stand together for the city's football. For better or worse.
