A4 sized paperback,
For a long-running project, the authors
have consulted every competitive match report in Liverpool FC’s history.
The sixth volume in the series covers seasons 1933-34 to 1938-39,
and the three matches of the abandoned season of 1939-40.
This volume also includes reserve team results and dates for 1896-97 to
1938-39, and end-of-season tables for the leagues in which the reserves played.
This volume also includes reserve team results and dates for 1896-97 to 1938-39, and end-of-season tables for the leagues in which the reserves played.
A full page of the book is dedicated to
each match. Full statistical details include the date and venue, the
line-ups and scorers of both teams, the attendance and referee when known.
Short paragraphs examine the build up to the game and the consequences.
A League table shows the position of all the clubs after the game.
The main feature of each page is a detailed report of the game. The original newspaper reports are often lengthy and difficult to read, so the authors took the decision to re-write each match report in a style that we are familiar with today. Goal scorers are highlighted in the text. Many papers have been consulted and comments are included if their reports differ in any detail. The consequence is a new authoritative account of Liverpool FC’s games.
