Kenny Dalglish. Graeme Souness. Ian Rush. Alan Hansen. Bruce Grobelaar. They rank with the very greatest players ever. But the heroes of 1984 were an unlikely group to make history. Led by a 63-year old first-time manager and a captain show-off better known for his moves on the dancefloor, Liverpool's greatest season was a booze-fuelled journey to three trophies: the first division title, the League Cup and the European Cup, won on a remarkable night in Rome. The team's theme song was even the much-derided Chris Rea hit. Eye-watering, hilarious, and utterly unbelievable, this is the story of how they did it, and how their season was the last year of innocence in English football.

Reviews

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
