Tony Evans has been football editor of The Times for five years and was born a Liverpool fan. He writes a weekly column for The Game, The Times' weekly football supplement. He came to journalism at the age of 29 and spent his 20s following Liverpool and playing in bands, including a stint in The Farm. In 1983-84, he saw all 42 league games and most of the matches in other competitions.
Superbly paced. Full of riveting anecdotes about possibly Liverpool's finest campaign, the Treble in 1983-84. The book is worth the admission price alone for Evans' re-telling of Souey's jaw-busting encounter with Dynamo Bucharest's Lica Movila, followed by the Reds' triumph in Rome. This is how a football book should read * Mirror (Book of the Month) *
Evans' narrative never flags, the anecdotes are apt, and the blood on the streets and the boots on the field are as dramatic and black-humoured as on a battleground * The Times *
