Product Description

Product Description

This book focuses on what is arguably the most extraordinary game in the long and illustrious history of Liverpool FC ~ the 2005 European Champions League Final against AC Milan at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul.

As the spectators assembled in the stadium to watch the game, accompanied by millions more on TV, little did they realise that they were about to be taken on the roller-coaster ride of a lifetime.

Three goals down at half-time, Liverpool seemed to have lost the game for sure ~ but went on to stage a truly remarkable comeback ~ stretching the nerves of every Liverpool fan to breaking point and beyond.

For Michael Bailey and his father, two lifelong Reds who were lucky enough to be in the Ataturk Stadium that night, it was an unforgettably emotional experience, and not just because of what was happening on the pitch.

Earlier that year, three of Michael's close friends had lost their fathers, making him appreciate his own Dad all the more, so when offered two tickets for the final, Michael jumped at the chance ~ little suspecting at the time just how memorable a game it would turn out to be.

Michael succeeds in recapturing the spirit of the occassion and, in doing so, gets to the heart of what being a Liverpool fan is all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A scouse odyssey and a half! 24 Aug 2011
By Coops
Format:Kindle Edition
Being both an avid Liverpool and general football fan, yet far from an avid reader it takes a lot to get and keep my interest in a book!

But this Scouse Odyssey captured my heart and mind from the outset. For anyone who has followed their club through the ups and downs, had hopes and dreams of titles and cups shattered, this book tells the story of what will possibly be the greatest footballing example of how, when any chance of victory seems to have gone, with a belief and togetherness, there is always hope.

Anyone who has followed their team 'on the road' be it to domestic or European game, will be able to relate to the comical tales of travelling to away games. The way the book is written can make you laugh out loud one minute, and evoke memories of your own experiences the next.

Not only does this book tell the story of that incredible night, it also tells the tale of the unique unity football brings to people who share a passion it what in my eyes will always be 'the beautiful game.'

Any football fan could relate to this book and the emotions it stirs

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Liverpool fans 3 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite not being a Liverpool fan I bought this book anyway. What I found was a very well written piece of work that caputures what it is like to not only to have a relationship with your football team but also comments effectively on the father/son relationship.
The book takes you on a very interesting journey and it should appeal to a wide audience outside of simply Liverpool fans. That said it's a must for all kopites and could well be seen as their 'Fever Pitch'.
