Here We Go Gathering Cups in May : Liverpool in Europe, the Fans' Story Paperback
Edited by Nicky Allt
Seven European Cup finals. Seven fans. Seven amazing adventures following the team they love.
This book celebrates the achievements of Liverpool FC in Europe, and in particular a love affair with Old Big Ears - the European Cup.
It's an ongoing affair that began with the legendary and, in those days, unprecedented exodus of 30,000 Liverpool fans to Rome in 1977, has taken in the glories of Paris and Istanbul, endured the horror of Brussels, and still burns as brightly today with Athens 2007, just the latest staging post of Liverpool's trans-European express.Above all, "Here We Go Gathering Cups In May" tells of the bond between a club and its fans: the lengths those fans will go to in order to be there at the final to cheer on their team, vivid accounts of what happened along the way, their escapades in some of Europe's iconic capitals, and their recollections of those historic nights - nights of glory and, sometimes, nights of tragedy.
