Football Club: The Official History
Liverpool Football Club: The Official History hits the back of the net
this autumn as the ultimate collectors DVD.
AS A LIFELONG LIVERPOOL SUPPORTER who recalls watching his first match at
Anfield in October 1955 when the home team beat Rotherham 2-0
in the old League Division 2 I was a little suspic-ious of the
DVD Liverpool Football Club: The Official History.
What could there possibly be that was new or different about the Merseyside
team? Would it simply be a sermon preaching to the converted? It's no criticism
to say that, to some extent, it is. But it also provides an invaluable insight
into the things that have made Liverpool the most successful club in English
Liverpool Football Club: The Official History captures the pride and
traditions of what is arguably one of the world's greatest football clubs; and
also encapsulates the unique relationship that the club has with its most important
asset The Fans. The fans are the reason why opposing teams feel
they are playing against twelve when they play Liverpool; not least of all because
the now famous anthem adopted by the supporters in 1966 lets every single team
know that they'll never walk alone and has sealed the bond between the players
and the fans. The tragedy of Hillsborough underlined the uniqueness of that
The Liverpool Football Club: The Official History DVD follows the for-tunes
of the team and takes you on an exciting journey through the years at Anfield.
Included are Liverpool's most memorable dates such as winning
the Champions League in 2005, in one of the most famous comeback games in football
history, and the FA cup win against West Ham in 2006.
Featuring fantastic goals, highlights and superstar players, the DVD takes you
from the beginning of the club's history in 1892, through to Liverpool's glory
days in the 80s and up to the present day Summer, 2007, as the
club enters a new and exciting era. It takes a detailed look at Gerard Houllier,
from his early trophy winning days, right through to his reign as club manager.
And the formidable Rafa Benitez, credited by many as the man who has restored
pride to Liverpool supporters.
The ultimate collector's DVD, Liverpool Football Club: The Official History
is a complete history of Liverpool Football Club and the perfect cv of the team's
credentials. One can almost imagine George Gillett
and Tom Hicks, the Club's new American owners, watching it and exclaiming: "Hey,

Representing good value for money, this brilliant testament to the Merseyside
team documents the Liverpool legends and the goals that have won the trophies
