'What is a football team? A complex entity, I'm sure we'd all agree. It's a team of players of course, but also a team of coaching staff and their support system, a team of management, a team of administrators, a team of publicists, a team of corporate relations staff, and teams of supporters. All of these. I am going to be talking about the connection between the idea of the 'team' and Hölderlin, so please bear with me while I talk first about 'teams'.' (Introduction)
