Book Description

18 Oct 2013
Liverpool FC are one of the most famous clubs in the world with passionate fans on every continent. Recent tours to North America and the Far East have shown just how popular they are with games being played before sell-out crowds in stadiums as big as Wembley. Going back to the Victorian era, author Steven Horton tells the story of the club's tours, not just to the far foreign lands such as Sudan and Singapore but also to places nearer to home including Ireland, Scotland and Scandinavia. The book gives an insight into how tours have evolved from being end-of-season jaunts to beat the minimum wage to carefully planned programmes for developing fitness through to the globe trotting, money spinning operations of the present day. Red All Over the World gives some fascinating insights and answers a number of questions including: where did Liverpool travel by horsed drawn carriage, who had a gun pointed at him in a Spanish bar and how was pre-season so crucial to success under Bob Paisley? The book answers these and more, covering both the light hearted and serious elements of Liverpool's tours around the globe.

Format:Paperback
Following his excellent summary of Liverpool's trophy-winning season of 1972-73 in "Ending the Seven-Year Itch", the second in Steven Horton's trilogy in the first half of this decade changes direction completely by moving away from competitive matches and focusing on friendly matches that the club has played throughout its history. "Red All Over The World" is indeed an appropriate title because, South America apart, Liverpool Football Club has indeed travelled to pretty much every corner of the globe in its one hundred and twenty-one year history to entertain followers of the game from many different cultures and backgrounds.

Steven is a proficient and authoritative local historian as well as being extremely knowledgeable about the football club he has supported all his life. But the internet is only a recent phenomenon so there is only one way to properly research events that took place decades ago; and that is by the most painstaking detective work that usually involves spending hours trawling through old newspaper reports and articles, something this author has always been prepared to do with the utmost diligence so that he can get at the facts and then relay them to others.

Liverpool teams started travelling almost as soon as the club had been formed. In the early days some tours at the end of a season gave the club an opportunity to reward its players with a sort of `busman's holiday' because it was unable, officially anyway, to supplement a player's wages with extra payments. But the schedule was extremely demanding. In the club's inaugural season, 1892-93, twenty-five competitive matches were played (twenty-two in the Lancashire League and three in the F.A.
