Format: Paperback
This is by far the best book about Liverpool FC that I have ever read. Brian Reade's passion (no, make that obsession) is matched only by his economical, yet extremely powerful way with words. It is frequently 'laugh-out-loud', but is also heartbreaking to the point of actual tears (with good reason too)... If you support Liverpool therefore, or even if you don't, I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I agree with the other reviewer, Brian Reade writes a compelling book with the rollercoaster of emotions that following Liverpool over decades bring with it. He doesn't shy away from unpleasant truths (blame over Heysel) and neither is he willing to lay down and accept anything less than the real truth over Hillsborough.
This book will make you laugh and it will make you cry. More than anything it will make you proud to be a Scouser. Our inability to be prodded, poked or pigeon-holed and our ability to always see the bright side and the black humour in some awful situations.
Congratulations to Reade on writing a football book which is nothing like some of the saccharine sweet sycophantic scribblings of some of his journalistic contemporaries.
Highly recommended to any football fan or student of late 20th Century social history.

I really enjoyed this book. I have read it twice already. Brian Reade is so good at conveying his passion for LFC he could even turn a bluenose red! He takes you through his journey as a Liverpudlian from childhood to present, following the Redmens highs and lows. If you love football and Liverpool you will love this book. It is both heartbreakingly sad (Hillsborough), uplifting(Istanbul) and funny. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.

I bought this book for my dad for one of his birthday presents as I seen the book was written by Brian Reade (who also wrote 'An Epic Swindle'). Although I have not read the book it seems like a good book, with clear writing inside, perfect for a fathers day gift or a stocking filler if your running short on ideas!

Quick Delivery and the packaging ensured the product was in pristine condition.

As a Liverpool fan, this book probably has more appeal than it would to a Man Utd, Chelsea or Everton fan, but that should not disuade you from picking this up. If you put yourself in Reade's place it won't matter what club you follow and if you do follow Liverpool then why have you not read this book already?
An excellent book and an engaging history of one man's love of a footballing giant.

I've been visiting Anfield for almost 30 years now so not quite up to the '44 years with the same bird' but nevertheless the majority of the book was very relevant to my life!
Whether you are a new (younger) supporter or have been supporting the reds for a long time, this book is sure to evoke memories and will have you laughing, crying and agreeing with Brian as he tells his tales of years of supporting LFC.
Very well written and very real - this book is a must for any Liverpool fan and is an interesting and fun recollection of the last 4 decades.
