This insightful, highly readable book attempts to map the evolution of the club through ten specific matches... Above all, The Anatomy of Liverpool is an engrossing account of a sporting institution forging its identity through the post-war years. Some of the detail is priceless too... Highly recommended.

In 2013 Wilson uses the same "History in Ten Matches" concept with which he approached his book about the national team two years earlier. He picks ten matches from Liverpool Football Club's history, all carefully selected because "certain games lie on the fault-lines of history. Perhaps they mark the end of one era and the start of another". The tragic match at Hillsborough is deliberately omitted because the subject-matter is "too big for a book of this nature". So we end up with ten matches but only four of the ten are cup finals, although the destiny of the English championship did rest on two of the others. Interestingly, because sports-writers are often reluctant to tackle events that they did not live through themselves, the first match took place in the 19th century towards the end of Queen Victoria's reign; and the second shortly after the end of the Second World War. All the other eight took place in more modern times (what I might call the video/dvd-age) because those matches can all be watched in their entirety and dissected minute by minute if necessary.Read more ›
