Liverpool's place in English football's hierarchy is recognised around the world and almost every high-profile star on the move gets linked with the Anfield club. Under manager Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool remain the benchmark for success at home and abroad. Title No. 19 remains the Holy Grail, but cup success is a common theme, including the record-setting eighth League Cup success in 2012. No British club is close to matching Liverpool's eight cup victories in Europe and they came within inches of achieving another eight-timer, this time in the FA Cup two months later. From Alan Hansen and Graeme Souness through Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Jamie Redknapp to Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard, few clubs can boast as many people with so much to say for themselves, especially in the case of ex-manager Bill Shankly, football's most quoted man. Liverpool have a proud tradition and a very loyal support, and this book aims to capture the flavour of both.
