I've just been reading the chapter about Liverpool's first European Cup in 1977 and it brought back so many wonderful memories, although I must admit I'd never previously heard the story of the Kopite who nearly lost his crown jewels at the St Etienne game. Oh happy days.
But then Liverpool, The Complete Record is a treasure house packed with gems, from incredible facts, figures and tables to fascinating newspaper reports, fans' tales and the definitive account of every decade of our club's history.
In compiling and writing their book, Arnie Baldursson and Gudmundur Magnusson have truly excelled and my congratulations and thanks go to Iceland's finest for what is destined to be a Liverpool classic.
As I have said elsewhere, if ever I'm marooned on a desert island, this is the one book you can leave me with. Sheer bliss on the beach, day after day after day.

Format: Hardcover
This book recounts in 486 very readable pages the history of Liverpool FC from their inception in 1892 up to the end of the 2010-11 season. The history is told more or less as a continuous narrative, and is interspersed with league tables and tables of every competitive fixture from each season.

This is followed by two shorter sections comprising tables of every fact you could possibly want to know about Liverpool FC, from the number of league, cup and European appearances of every player, to the squad numbers since 1993, the highest and lowest attendances, and even which Liverpool players have scored on their birthday! -- in short, a statistics buff's dreamland.

I've only been a Liverpool fan since 2004, and before that I knew nothing about football, so this book was a history lesson for me. I loved catching up on the early directors of the club and how they ended up purchasing Anfield from rivals Everton, through the dire period of the late 50's and then the club's revival under Shankly and Paisley, and then the great years of the 80's under Dalglish, and finally reliving some of the highs and lows under recent managers Houllier, Benítez and Hodgson.

My only complaints are that the tabular information could have been edited more carefully, particularly towards the end of the book. For example, on page 533 a table ranking every manager in the club's history by games won, drawn and lost whilst in charge has John McKenna / WE Barclay in 1st place with a win ratio of 60.62%, with Kenny Dalglish (first stint) in 2nd place with a win ratio of 60.91%! And there are many similar examples of data listed out of sequence as the book nears its end. Also, in the narrative account of the last few seasons (c. 2005-2011) it feels like the writers are hastening to put down their pen. But these are minor irritations.

All in all, an essential purchase for any fan who wants to understand the club's 120-year history.

The book has all the data and statistics you need to know about Liverpool FC. I find the fact on which players have played with what number when to a quite interesting thing, since this information is not easily available elsewhere (but probably on the authors homepage)
