Do you remember the first football match you went to? The first time you went to Anfield? Your first away match? Your first European game? Visits to Wembley? Rome? Istanbul? If you have ever been to watch Liverpool play, the chances are you will have a programme. And if you have a programme, you will have a little bit of history in your hands.
Now, for the first time, 75 seasons of Liverpool football programmes have been catalogued and assembled in one place. Starting as World War II draws to a close, the book takes you on a journey through the post-war history of Liverpool Football Club, a journey on which the match-day programmes are your guide.
Travel with the Reds on their early tours to the United States and Canada; discover the “forgotten tours” to Czechoslovakia, Sweden and France; and, share in their dreams of European conquest, starting with a bumpy plane ride to Reykjavik. Along the way, relive the dramas, the comebacks, the tragedies and the heroics – and the strangest season of all, in which Liverpool, reigning Champions of Europe, were crowned Champions of England and Champions of the World. This book does more than tell you the history of the past 75 seasons, it lets you share in it and helps you make it your own.
All profits generated from the book are being donated to Liverpool F.C.'s charity, the LFC Foundation. "Working in areas of high need and deprivation across the Liverpool City Region, it aims to deliver sustainable and long-term change for communities and to ensure that its work continues to benefit future generations."
