Being both an avid Liverpool and general football fan, yet far from an avid reader it takes a lot to get and keep my interest in a book!
But this Scouse Odyssey captured my heart and mind from the outset. For anyone who has followed their club through the ups and downs, had hopes and dreams of titles and cups shattered, this book tells the story of what will possibly be the greatest footballing example of how, when any chance of victory seems to have gone, with a belief and togetherness, there is always hope.
Anyone who has followed their team 'on the road' be it to domestic or European game, will be able to relate to the comical tales of travelling to away games. The way the book is written can make you laugh out loud one minute, and evoke memories of your own experiences the next.
Not only does this book tell the story of that incredible night, it also tells the tale of the unique unity football brings to people who share a passion it what in my eyes will always be 'the beautiful game.'
Any football fan could relate to this book and the emotions it stirs
