Product description

Team of all the Macs: The Birth of Liverpool Football Club

Alan Wilson

Vertical Editions, 2011.

Soft-bound; 155 x 230 mm; pictorial covers; 191 pages. No dust jacket. Monochrome illustrations.

The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and tight with no creasing of the spine. Minimal bumping to covers. A very slight mark on page 73.

“Many football fans today believe the current trend of wealthy owners throwing their money at clubs and flooding the game with over-paid foreign players is new – it is anything but. This book covers English football’s first foreign invasion in 1892. Following a boardroom row that split the defending league champions, Everton, down the middle, Liverpool Football Club were formed. John Houlding, the owner of Anfield, was left in the peculiar position of having a state-of-the-art stadium but no team to play in it. Houlding armed his friend, John McKenna, with substantial funds and specific orders to build him a team within two months that would be fit to grace Anfield. The team was so full of Scots that they earned the nickname the ‘Team of all the Macs’ and this is their story told through match reports and newspaper stories of the day that covers the birth of Liverpool Football Club and began their love affair with Scottish players that has continued with the likes of Ian St John, Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen through the years.”
