Product Description

Publisher: Mainstream

Author: John Williams

A unique and exhaustively researched history of Liverpool Football Club, which explores the origins and divisive politics of football in the city of Liverpool and profiles the club's key figures.

Many of the great figures of the club are featured in Red Men, including the first great Liverpool manager, Tom Watson, who piloted the club to its first league championships in 1901 and 1906 before taking the club to the FA Cup final in 1914; Elisha Scott, the darling of the Kop in the 1920s; and, of course, Bill Shankly, who won that elusive first FA Cup in 1965.
