The Official Liverpool FC Illustrated Encyclopedia(2003)
A non fiction book by Jeff Anderson and Stephen Done
Liverpool FC is the only British club to hold the UEFA Champions League/European Cup in perpetuity, thanks to the Reds five wins. That is the glorious tip of an enormous iceberg of trophies - three UEFA Cups and UEFA Super Cups, and 18 Football League titles, eight Football League Cups and seven FA Cups complete the major-trophy list - To look at the players that have worn the famous red shirt is to wander through a Who's Who of football history: from Billy Liddell to European Footballer of the Year Kevin Keegan, through Dalglish, Hansen, Rush and Souness to Steven Gerrard and Michael Owen. The story of Liverpool Football Club is rich in success and glory, but it is also steeped in tradition: the famous boot-room ethic has permeated every corridor of the Club; The Kop, despite its modernisation into an all-seater stand, still offers a fanatical, awesome support that many claim is worth a goal start. And amazingly, the club has only had 15 managers in the last century - a level of stability almost unheard of in the modern game. From A to Z, The Official Liverpool FC Illustrated Encyclopedia chronicles the highs and lows of LFC's stunning story and serves as an unequalled source of reference on everything to do with the club. From the Academy through to Christian Ziege, not forgetting the Beatles, Kenny Dalglish, Gerard Houllier, Yosser Hughes and Abel Xavier in between, this is a fascinating alphabetical journey through over a century of sporting heroics set against the backdrop of life on Merseyside. But most importantly it is a story of incredible passion and pride. For Liverpool Football Club somehow manages to inspire not only its own fans, but also followers of football the world over. For millions, Liverpool Football Club is a special place and this is its own special story.
