Quite simply, a trip back in the good old days of football specials, blagging into grounds, onto trains and ships and witnessing Liverpool's finest triumphs. It was all captured well by these traveling Reds and it makes me sad for the new generation of Reds who will never feel what we did in the 70s and 80s, with the innocence, passion, and sense of adventure all lost by capitalistic means. It's just a day out for the middle class and wealthy now. Even the way we dressed back then has been lost on the new Reds. Too many replicas on display today and too many new fans who will never know what it really meant to be Kopite, Anfield Road Ender, or a casual. Today, they sing Rafa songs, much to my dismay. We used to sing for Liverpool, now we sing for a Spaniard who has spent millions on nobodies and not won anything in 4 years, playing counter attacking football, when we used to win something every season with players who were attack minded and independent, and could pull out a display of football that was a clinic in one touch passing. Today's fans haven't a clue what it was like for us following our Red Men around the globe, but this book brings some perspective on it. Now, we just need the full length movie.
