Im not a liverpool fan and i couldnt really get past that.

Wilson (and Murray) are good writers with a knowledge of football that makes me feel inadequate but for some reason i just couldnt get past it

Intelligent football fans' dream book; match reports giving a sense of each individual game, in the context of the tactical evolution of the sport and the wider social and historical development of the club.

The characters are sharply drawn and the significance of each match is fully explored.

A fine, fine book -- Wilson is as always great on tactics and breaking down matches, but this is also a very good history of the world's most glorious club. Recommended for any fan of the game, even non-LFC supporters.

A history of one of the most famous clubs in the world. A story through time from the start to Istanbul through 10 matches.

Good book. Perhaps a bit too detailed on the actual matches, but the analysis on the macro dynamics at the club is excellent.
