43 Years With The Same Bird

Amidst the fever that's surrounding the European Championships, the very fact that you're reading this is because YOU'RE A LIVERPOOL FAN! Don't ever forget that!

So I'm here to inform you, my fellow Reds out there, that there is going to be a highly anticipated book named '43 Years With The Same Bird' that is going to be released soon. Written by Brian Reade, a lifelong Liverpool fan and award winning journalist, he is going to touch on the moments which impacted him and probably us as well.

It is Brian's take on the extraordinary stories behind the 48 trophies he has seen Liverpool lift since watching them en route to their first-ever FA Cup win in 1965, right through to the Champions League defeat in Athens in 2007. It takes in all of the big nights that propelled the club to five European Cups, three UEFA Cups, 12 titles, countless domestic cup triumphs, bitter failures, the tragic disasters in Sheffield and Brussels, as well as the barren years of the late 60s and the 90s.

Already sounding fantastic to me! As Liverpool fans, we know there's one thing that binds us all and it's our sentimentalism and how we pride ourselves in 'those good old days'. While we move forward with Rafa Benitez and his Spanish armada, it wouldn't be a harm looking back and reminiscing on the events which 'shook the Kop'.

For more, please check out his latest podcast HERE and do mail me if you're interested. I'll most definitely point you to the person whom will answer all your questions.
