Red Men : Liverpool Football Club: The Biography
by John Williams




Overview -
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.

The recent tragedies that have shaped the club's contemporary identity are covered here, as are the new Continental influences at Liverpool and, of course, the glory of Istanbul in 2005. Red Men is the definitive history of a remarkable
football club from its formation in 1892 to the present day, told in the wider context of the social and cultural development of the city of Liverpool and its people.
