Omtale Red All Over the World
Liverpool FC are one of the most famous clubs in the world with passionate fans on every continent. Recent tours to North America and the Far East have shown just how popular they are with games being played before sell-out crowds in stadiums as big as Wembley. Going back to the Victorian era, author Steven Horton tells the story of the club's tours, not just to the far foreign lands such as Sudan and Singapore but also to places nearer to home including Ireland, Scotland and Scandinavia. The book gives an insight into how tours have evolved from being end-of-season jaunts to beat the minimum wage to carefully planned programmes for developing fitness through to the globe trotting, money spinning operations of the present day. Red All Over the World gives some fascinating insights and answers a number of questions including: where did Liverpool travel by horsed drawn carriage, who had a gun pointed at him in a Spanish bar and how was pre-season so crucial to success under Bob Paisley? The book answers these and more, covering both the light hearted and serious elements of Liverpool's tours around the globe.
