Liverpool Football Club: The Official History
Liverpool 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 Football history.

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 member
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 relationship.

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, we've made a pretty good investment here, fellas!"

Representing good value for money, this brilliant testament to the Merseyside team documents the Liverpool legends and the goals that have won the trophies over the years. A pivotal date in Liverpool history was 1 December 1959 when Bill Shankly took over as manager and the Club's resurgence from that point through the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties is fully covered. One can share the thrill over the years as Liverpool's team members went on to become football's untouchables.

This definitive history of Liverpool Football club is very much a 'must see' for football lovers everywhere. An action-packed and drama-filled documentary, stories include the breathtaking plans for a new stadium on Stanley Park; smashing their own transfer record with the signing of one of the most thrilling goal scorers in Europe Fernando Torres and welcoming the vision and influence of George Gillett and Tom Hicks. Do not miss this piece of football history, with the collectable pack-aging making this an essential purchase for any fan.
