5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift for a Red devotee!, 5 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red Machine: Liverpool FC in the '80s: The Players' Stories (Kindle Edition)
Simon Hughes is well known in Liverpool as a talented and gifted sports writer, and it is a testament to him that he has gone back in time to write about part of LFC's golden era that he heard about from his father's tales, back when footballers were real men, and players, staff and backroom staff gave their all to their clubs, and loyalty wasn't just attached to a price tag. I read this book as an Everton fan, but it still made a great read for me. As the book is based around the 1980's this was a hugely competitive time for Merseyside football, and there are some huge characters in the book, from Craig Johnson to John Barnes, who Liverpool fans will always hold in great esteem. Simon writes with knowledge, depth and humour and his love for his craft and his team shine through. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It would make a great gift for a devoted Liverpool fan. I am sure that Susan Hughes, to whom this book is dedicated, would have been very proud. We are certainly proud that our city has such a creative sports writer representing us!
