Product description

When the legendary Liverpool manager Bill Shankly retired in 1974 he was leaving in place at Anfield the second outstanding team that he had assembled. Shankly's team had tasted success in domestic and European competitions and with new boss Bob Paisley at the helm now looked destined for greatness. Paisley's team achieved immortality with European Cup wins in 1977 and 1978. During the 1970s Liverpool were simple irresistible as trophy after trophy found its way to Anfield. The platers that graced the Anfield turf during this decade such as Keegan, Dalglish, Clemence, Hansen, Souness and Toshack, are among the greatest names British football has ever produced. Liverpool won eleven major trophies during the 1970s and by the end of the decade were firmly established as one of the great clubs in world football. Phil Thompson has been following Merseyside football since the 1960s and has written several books on the subject. Here he documents the sensational exploits of Liverpool in the 1970s.
