Liverpool FC the Greatest Goals (Hardcover) (Zarif Rasul)
About this item
This official Liverpool FC publication celebrates 50 of the greatest goals witnessed in the Reds' fantastic historyIan Rush, Roger Hunt, Billy Liddell, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard, John Barnes, Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez, Kevin Keegan. . . the list goes on. Liverpool Football Club has been blessed with some truly great players during its 120-year history, all of whom have scored some fabulous goals. The 50 greatest goals witnessed at Anfield, and beyond, have been selected from throughout the Club's history. Few clubs in the world can match Liverpool FC's record of 18 League Championships, seven FA Cups, eight Football League Cups, three UEFA Cups, and five prestigious European Cups, plus the UEFA Super Cup and many FA Charity/Community Shields. The goals have been arranged chronologically so the reader can rate his or her own favorites. Each entry features a description of the goal, both in terms of the build up play, the wider context of the match, and its place in history. And every entry features at least one photograph of the goal in question, which will bring back great memories for those who were there and bring the goal vividly to life for those who weren't. Among the 50 chosen goals are superb team goals, such as Kevin Keegan's in the 1974 FA Cup final against Newcastle United, dynamic breakaway goals like Terry McDermott's header against Tottenham Hotspur in 1978 (rated by Bob Paisley, at the time, as probably the best in Liverpool's history), fabulous strikes such as Steven Gerrard's against Manchester United in 2001, and wonderful solo efforts like John Barnes' against Queens Park Rangers in 1987 and Steve McManaman's against Celtic in 1997. There are even a few goals from Liverpool's earlier history, such as the first of the 215 goals Billy Liddell scored for the Reds (against Chester in January 1946), and the debut goal of one of Liverpool's most prolific goal scorers, Roger Hunt (against Scunthorpe United in September 1959).
