In April 1981, Howard Gayle was summoned from the substitutes’ bench and sent on to play for Liverpool in the second leg of a European Cup semi-final at German champions Bayern Munich. The previous October, by filling the same role at Manchester City, he became the first black footballer in Liverpool’s 89-year history to play at first team level. Gayle’s Liverpool career proved to be short. He would pull on the red shirt only five times in total, scoring once. Yet he is remembered as a trailblazer. In 61 Minutes in Munich, Gayle takes you inside his life: bringing the shutters down on a childhood spent between Toxteth and Norris Green, two contrasting areas of Liverpool. He details life on the streets, the racism, the other forms of abuse, of which he has only told a handful of people before, and his ascent from teenage football hooligan to a player with Europe’s leading club. Gayle explains what it was like to be a black man with a profound sense of insecurity inside a Liverpool dressing room at the most successful point in the club’s history, a place where only the strongest survived. In Munich, Gayle ran Bayern’s defenders ragged and is credited by many as the catalyst for Liverpool’s progression to the final. And yet, by being substituted after 61 minutes on the pitch, he reveals his dismay at never being trusted to keep his cool in the most tense of environments. Gayle takes you to Newcastle, to Birmingham City, to Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers. He takes you back his modest home in the south end of Liverpool where it all began. Part social-history, part-autobiography, 61 Minutes in Munich is an exposition of life in the city of Liverpool during one of the most turbulent periods in its history. Above all it examines how a pioneer like Gayle has been up against it from the moment he was born.

Described by the late, great Bill Shankly as 'the final piece in the jigsaw' of his now famous Liverpool side of the 1970s, Peter Cormack is one of the most successful footballers of his generation, winning both domestic and European honours at club level and playing for his country nine times. Regarded as a legend by fans of both Hibernian and Liverpool, Peter's playing career also included spells with Nottingham Forest and Bristol City before he moved into football management. From the Cowshed to the Kop is a compelling account of a career spanning almost forty years. As soon as he joined Hibernian as a teenager, his quality shone through, and amongst his 99-goal tally was Hibs' first in a glamour-friendly against a world-class Real Madrid side, which included Hungarian talisman Ferenc Puskás. He also starred in the famous Napoli game where Hibs beat the Italian giants 5-0 at Easter Road to overturn a seemingly impossible 4-1 deficit. After a two-year spell in the English First Division with Nottingham Forest, Bill Shankly made his move and signed Cormack for Liverpool for a club record equaling fee of 110,000. He soon established himself as a key part of one of the greatest footballing sides of all time and won two League Championships, an FA Cup medal and two UEFA Cup medals before injury forced him out of the team. These were the glory days at the start of Liverpool's dominance of domestic and European football, and Peter Cormack played his part in that incredible success story. Having played with and against some of the greatest names in football, Peter Cormack's remarkable story is told with honesty and humour, and provides a unique and fascinating insight into one of football's golden eras.

English National Identity And Football Fan Culture

In recent years, scholars have understood the increasing use of the St George’s Cross by football fans to be evidence of a rise in a specifically ’English’ identity. This has emerged as part of a wider ’national’ response to broader political processes such as devolution and European integration which have fragmented identities within the UK. Using the controversial figurational sociological approach advocated by the twentieth-century theorist Norbert Elias, this book challenges such a view, drawing on ethnographic research amongst fans to explore the precise nature of the relationship between contemporary English national identity and football fan culture. Examining football fans’ expressions of Englishness in public houses and online spaces, the author discusses the effects of globalization, European integration and UK devolution on English society, revealing that the use of the St George’s Cross does not signal the emergence of a specifically ’English’ national consciousness, but in fact masks a more complex, multi-layered process of national identity construction. A detailed and grounded study of identity, nationalism and globalization amongst football fans, English National Identity and Football Fan Culture will appeal to scholars and students of politics, sociology and anthropology with interests in ethnography, the sociology of sport, fan cultures, globalization and contemporary national identities.

Graeme Souness is a Glasgow Rangers icon, and a Liverpool legend in the same bracket as Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher. He has racked up getting on for fifty years in and around the world of professional football. The game has been his life, and his enduring passion. Souness has written a perceptive and opinionated autobiography. It chronicles one of the most successful and colourful careers in the history of British football. But it also provides an intriguing assessment of the game which has dominated his existence, drawing extensively on his incredibly rich and varied experiences as a player, manager and pundit. The result is a shrewd, incisive and hard-hitting memoir, at times tinged with hindsight and regret, which also grapples with many of the major talking points affecting the game today. It is shot through with Souness' trademark tenacity and wisdom, and with fantastic anecdotes from his glittering career. In many ways, Football: My Life, My Passion is the story of the last half-century of British football writ large.
