'We have written our own history with this win by becoming the first side to win three cups and we have produced a game which will be remembered for all time.' Gerard Houllier
After 17 long years in the wilderness, Liverpool Football Club are back among the European legends after one of the greatest football matches of all time. Liverpool FC - The Historic Treble traces the sensational three-cup roller coaster ride of season 2000/01. Remember Fowler at his magnificent best as he volleyed Hesky's flick beyond a helpless Bennett in the Birmingham City goal. Relive the eerie silence of the fans as, after City's 90th minute penalty was converted the Division One side forced extra time. Then there was the agony when Liverpool, who'd had one hand on the Worthington Cup, found their first triumph in six years would be decided by the lottery of the penalty shoot out. Then enter Jamie Carragher and enter Sander Westerveld. And phase one is complete. Remember sensing the FA Cup slipping away as Arsenal scored a goal they'd been threatening for the previous 70 minutes. But as Berger and Fowler, greeted by a massive Kopite roar of approval, came on, hopes were raised and within minutes Owen had scored.Six minutes later, with the FA Cup final seemingly heading for extra time, Liverpool snatched victory with a stunning Owen goal that left no time for Arsenal's shattered players to fight back. A few old scores settled. Phase two complete. And then to one of the most momentous nights in the history of Liverpool Football Club and the most amazing European Cup final ever. One hundred and sixteen minutes, seven goals, one penalty, two red cards and an own goal later Liverpool clinch their historic victory. Phase three done and dusted. In this stunning book, retrace the steps of Houllier's heroes through contemporaneous match reports of every single Cup game of the season. Featuring full match by match statistics, animated kick-by-kick descriptions and the best pitch-side photography for every single game, Liverpool FC: The Historic Treble follows the Red's path to victory in glorious detail. Fully official, this is the only wholly comprehensive record of Liverpool's Cup season and is a must-have celebration of a unique achievement.
