Perfect Companion for Golden Past, Red Future,
This review is from: Red Revival: Rafa Benitez's Liverpool Revolution (Paperback)
Following on from the brilliant `Golden Past, Red Future' was never going to be easy. With neither number 6 nor the long-awaited number 19 arriving in 2006, there was never going to be an ending to match that of Istanbul, no matter how hard the Cardiff heroics tried. But there was plenty for Liverpool fans to cheer about last season, and even more to look forward to in the near future, all of which is analyzed comprehensively in this great book, which for me is equally as good as its predecessor.
Every aspect of the season is discussed, from the will-he won't he Gerrard saga of 2005, to all the new additions to the squad including Robbie Fowler, to the best ever Premiership points tally all the way on to that memorable Saturday in Cardiff. Detailed statistical analysis of individual players lets readers realize just how important each was for the team in their own way as the reds broke the club record for consecutive clean sheets. It also suggests how Liverpool might combat Chelsea's spending, gives a good description of the new scouting system that Benitez has installed and details the youth team players who may or may not have the ability to break into the first team.
A great read for any fan of football (obviously, Liverpool fans will have more to enjoy than most) which is insightful, intelligent, at times very witty and most important of all, thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended
