Liverpool: The Story of a Football Club in 101 Lives

Liverpool — The Story of a Football Club in 101 Lives tells the history of the Anfield club through the biographies of key individuals associated with the Merseysiders from their formation in the gas-lit days of Victorian Britain through to the present day.
From John Houlding, the Lord Mayor of Liverpool who was the founder of the club in controversial circumstances, to their greatest manager Bill Shankly, and the great players who have worn the famous red shirt throughout its history, the in-depth stories of the characters — players and managers — here paint a fascinating picture of how the club — indeed, the game of football itself — has developed from workers playing for fun to today’s multi-million-pound business.
